A father was denied access by his wife to the delivery room for the birth of his own child, so instead of sitting around in the waiting room, he went home. The wife is now angry about it and is refusing to even speak to him. I agree. There is a high likelihood that I would instead have gone to a divorce attorney.
There are many women who do this- they act as if the child is theirs and theirs alone, until it comes time to pay the bills, then all of a sudden its OUR child. The whole statement of “it’s the decision she has made and you have to respect that” is bullshit. This is just another example of the war on heterosexual men.
There are hospitals that don’t give anyone a choice– no one is allowed in the delivery room except the mother.
The courts have backed this sort of behavior- on the one hand, the courts have said that mothers can ban fathers from the delivery room, but when it comes time for child support, then it is “pay up, buddy. Didn’t you know that it takes two to have a child?”
Here is my answer- you want the hospital bill paid? The person in the delivery room is the one paying it. That wasn’t me in there, so that isn’t my problem.
