All this talk about deadbeat Dads. While I realize that there are some cases of a father not loving or caring about his child I think most of it is just crap.
It is my belief that if one were to look at all the facts of the case and look at the relationship of the father with the child before and after the divorce one would find reasons as to why a father would run.
I look at the money that I have spent fighting a one sided court system and my ex wife to preserve my relationship with my children and it is an unbelievable amount of money.
It is sad when a society forces a parent to give up any type of life or future they may have had and restricts them to a lifetime of fighting for one desire and goal, to be a parent to their child. Anyone who says we are a civilized society obviously has never been through a lifetime of family court.
