  • One that isn't around, and doesn't make an effort towards your child at all. I don't think its all about money but if they dont have a good relationship, hes a dead beat dad.

  • Being a crappy husband would mean he didn't love or care about me and being a lousy dad means he doesn't love or participate with the kids. Being abusive is a nono with either label.

  • That's what you call a lazy,rude, mean man that expects you to clean the house. He also expects the woman to cook, do laundry,pay the bills on time, and to use your own money. And you can't go anywhere! That also means that the woman takes care of the kids. God forbid that he has to go pick the kids up from somewhere, on his precious time! (how's that one ladies?) Oh, and you are dumber than a box of rocks because he thinks he's smarter than everyone! HAHA!

  • Someone who is first, last and always more about himself than anyone else. The most important character trait to look for in any man before you consider making him a husband or father is his ability to put others before himself. That will be evident in a thousand different ways. The problem is we women "fall in love" without watching how he behaves anywhere else, and any dude can put on a good act for a little while. By the time he's found out, it's too late for the wives and children.

  • A lousy father is a man who isnt there for his kids and forgets or claim to forget birthdays and holidays but why is it that some men have kids of their own and when they find someone else and she has kids he is better to them than his own.
