Mothers taking the rights away from the dad before the child is even born..

for example,I always hear the excuse I am carrying the baby so its my choice what we name it... Without that man swimmers you wouldn't have kids at all. Some women wonder why there dad's aren't close with the kids and it is because during pregnancy women push there spouse away. Honestly your husband the right to know what is going on with his growing fetus and should have the right to know what your having even if your don't want him too. I can't stand women who have to be in control of everything.

  • My and my husband takes turns naming the child unless the other one really hates the name. We both know everything about the baby and make decisions together.

  • It is kinda like the women that think just because they are mom they are entitled to custody when the relationship doesn't work out.

  • I wouldn't. I hate women that think just because they are the ones pregnant, they have control of everything! It is that man's child too! I also hate women that think that just because they had a child with the man, that the man automatically owes them an arm and a leg in child support. You helped make that child. It's 50/50. He is responsible for half of the child's bills.. You are responsible for the other half.

    I have a female friend that thinks her baby's father should pay 100 percent of her rent and light bill just because they have a child together, UMMM.. no! Get a job low life, lol!

  • I agree with you, sadly I think some of the women that do this have some type of mental issue! I wouldn't take my husband right away. Goodness if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be able to stay home and care for my children..

  • Compromise is the key. But as for him going behind her back to try to get gender information out of the doctor, that is wrong. He could be an adult, go to the ultrasound and the doctor could quietly tell him where the mother wouldn't hear. Unless there is some kind of issue like drug addiction or alcoholism to point to, neither side needs to say it's solely their child and cut the other one out. The post you're referring to though is a little ridiculous on the father's part with him threatening to call the doctor and get what he wants. Doctor's offices don't work that way and if he is that interested in his child's gender, he can take an hour and show up at the appointment.

  • Some fathers work to provide for the mothers needs and for the chidlren correct? If a father can't make it and has to work what is wrong with him calling to get the info. It is selfish on the mothers part for not letting him find out if he wants to know. It s childish on the mothers part for not wanting him to find out and for him to wait even though he doesn't want too.

    I didn't want to know and my hubby did so the tech put it on the ultrasound and I gave it to my hubby so he will know.
