I know, I really need to stop listening to talk radio, but I was bored in traffic, so…
This was the call today: Guy and girl break up, but the girl never tells the guy she’s pregnant with his child. She marries someone else while he goes off and doesn’t have any further contact with her. Three years later, she and her husband contact the guy and inform him that he has a two-year-old son. The husband is being a good father to the child, no problems, and ostensibly they say they were informing him to get his family’s medical history. The guy steps up to the plate and starts spending time with the child, but not specifically as his father (i.e., they don’t try to explain to him that this is his “other daddy”). Evidently everyone is fine with this arrangement - the girl and husband obviously allow him to spend time with the child, he’s happy spending time and getting to know the child, he seems to approve of the husband being a good father to his child, etc. All is well.
His question to “Dr.” Laura was when would be the appropriate time to tell the child he’s his biological father.
That’s right. Her advice is to walk away and never see that child again. Why? Paraphrasing, “It’s too confusing for him to have two fathers. He already has one in the husband in every way, so you’re just making things complicated. Bug out.”
I cannot find the words to express what a fucking bitch this woman is. She touts “RESPONSIBILITY” as her magic word, and here’s a guy, denied the opportunity to be a father to his child, who steps up and accepts that responsibility (with the blessing of the child’s mother and step-father), and what can this rat’s asshole regurgitate from the depths of her bowels? All he is to the child is a “sperm donor.”
:mad: I despise this woman. :mad:
