What would happen if women stopped dating men who had small children with other women?

I mean like children under 5.  Shouldn't more couples of very young children be trying to work their relationships out instead of just jumping into the next relationship?  Don't they owe it to the children?

I am not talking about forcing anyone to do this, or passing laws, etc.

When I divorced I had a rule that I would not date anyone with children under the age of 14. That wasnot something I was willing to deal with. I also didn't want to date anyone with more the 2 kids. I stuck to that. I married a man with a 15 year old, only child.

What about the parents who were never in relationships?

If my husband and I ever divorce, I will not date anyone with children.

Some relationships are toxic. A friend of mine constantly gets beaten and choked by her husband. They have a two year old, and she just gave birth to a new one. He choked her out while pregnant, broke her nose, blacked her eyes, cut her face with a knife. Shook the two year old ate age one when he was crying. Raised his hand to punch the child, she took the beating instead. Not all is golden. I wish she would leave. I got her out of the state, snuck her to her family's house in another state. A month later she had him there with her. Tell me, should they work it out?

Well.. I didn't date a man with that young of a child. When I met my husband SS was already eight years old.

However, I strongly believe he should have left her long before. Yes, even if that would mean he never met me. He stayed in an abusive marriage for seventeen years trying to work it out for his son. Needless to say, it didn't work, and his son witnessed a lot of crap he didn't need to.
