    i think dead beat parents are the pits...mom or dad....the parent who doesnt have the kids should pay a reasonable child support. if they do not pay the state should step in and make them pay..too many parents are getting off without paying for their kids.

    I get on average 20 bucks a week sometimes less, who knows after this week. Little man's father is MIA, fell off the wagon this weekend and haven't heard from him since.

    ...

    from an teenage lover
    to an unwed mother
    kept under covers
    like some bad dream

    while unwed fathers
    they can't be bothered
    they run like water
    from a mountain stream.

    --John Prine

    When I do that song, I repeat the last phrase with a small change...

    ...
    they run like cowards
    from responsibility.

    The same way men get hooked up with a POS. It cuts both ways.

    Obviously you've never been attracted to a person and been in a relationship.......or you'd know the answer.

    "Attracted"... is that your answer? You were "attracted" to a drunken loser?

    "OBVIOUSLY" you don't know how to pick 'em.

    Pale, different folks have different reasons for their choices. I moved out of home at 11 for reasons I do not need to put here into a post here. I married at 15. Hey the guy was decent. After I became pregnant he was no longer decent. Sometimes life works that away. He decided he had no obligations to support his children when I told him he was not welcome back. Some people think that away. It happens.

    Yeah, I do. I got me a keeper long ago. But all relationships start of with an attraction. People see something they like and can have a tendency to overlook some bad traits. Also, there are folks out there who misrepresent themselves and appear to be something they are not. Once in a relationship, the new wears off and the real character comes out. Just how many men and women do you think get married knowing their spouse is a POS and go ahrad anyway? I'd say the percentage is small.
