A while back I watched a video on a Fathers’ support group in Australia. A single father in the group spoke about how his abusive and alcoholic wife had abandoned his children.
Although he mentioned how he felt alone, rejected and overwhelmed by the responsibility of raising three children with no support either socially or economically, he concluded his story by saying(paraphrased), ‘I have problems, yes, but I also know that I’m very lucky she’s out of my life and I have custody of my kids. I’m grateful for that.’
That statement reminded me of all the mothers who come out of the woodwork whenever father’s rights comes up to remind us of their ‘deadbeat ex who doesn’t pay a dime of child support.’
Well, that’s exactly why I support father’s rights. Because a single mother’s worst case scenario is a single father’s best case scenario.
Happy Father’s Day!
