  • ps....to those who say its immature and irresponsible to have diff dads. my situation was mature and responsible at both times...my kids were planed. Just the first one had other plans for himself later on so it of course didnt work out. The second i was married, then alter divorced cuz of him cheating and abusiveness. just thought id throught that out there.
    but its Immature a nd responsible for those who just sleep around and have kids by "accident".

  • No - she should have to meet same requirements as everyone else. Why should that matter?

  • Umm.....NO. I should depend on her economic status regardless of how many men she had kids with.

  • No not at all, I am a single mother and I have worked very hard to make sure that I can take care of my son on my own. Just because she has multiple children by multiple men doesn't make her special it makes her job harder yes but its still possible to raise children on your own without assistance

  • OP, do you think a Mom that gets knocked up by every Tom, Dick and Harry should have the taxpayers support the consequences of her irresponsiblities?

    I think she should have to get a job like responsible people do.
