There was an article I read a few months ago that referenced the results about some sort of genetic (or genetic related) research being done on a very sizeable population set in Britan a few years ago, and one part of the result data astounded the researchers when they found that approxmately 10% of the children were not fathered by the men specifically claimed to be the biological male parent.
Are rates of cuckolding actually this high worldwide? Do men really not know that the child is not theirs or do they just play along? I’ve got two kids and I can see they are my kids by obvious physical similarities.
Do any dopers know of friends of theirs being cuckolded? Have any dopers cuckolded their SO’s or been cuckolded themselves? How do these situations play out as the kids get older and it becomes more and more obvious (to everyone) the purported father is not the bio-dad. At some point I would imagine the father has so much emotionally invested in the child that bio parentage doesn’t matter and that is what the mother is hoping for by the time the truth is evident.
