Generally, I don't like the "not my DNA, not my kids" idea (partly from being adopted and partly because the kids are innocent in this) - if you consider them your kids enough that child support is an issue in the divorce, then they're yours and you need to help raise them; hell, I'd sue for custody citing her as the unreliable one. But in this case, the two dipshiats so obviously planned for him to pay for the kids that it is the human equivalent of cuckcoo birds. Though he might want to file for custody, since in denying that, the court will explicitly say he has no responsibilities to the kids.

He was lied to and deserves compensation for spending his money on some other man's kids. It has nothing to do with the children, it has to do with the slut wife.

Good for him.

How the hell is this deserving of the Asinine Tag? Is it supposed to be for the ex-wife?
 
2009-08-26 11:33:31 PM  
I hope he wins triple damages and the ex-wife goes to prison.

Asinine? It should be a Hero tag. God damned right he should get his money back.

I'm curious which TFette and her wish list submitted this.

+2 on him winning and his ex-wife getting the chair.

I hope he collects a pile here.
 
2009-08-26 11:36:30 PM  
Asinine? Really?

I have never understood how some people find it reasonable for a man to pay child support for kids that aren't even his...only because he happened to be farking the mom at the time of conception.

Screw her. Asinine is for subby. I hope the guy rapes her...in a legal sense.

This is why no matter how much you think you trust your wife, you should get a paternity test for every child you have.

the offspring of his business partner to his then-wife.

WTF?
"Are these the offspring of your husband to you?"
"No, they are the offspring of my husband's business partner. TO ME."
 
2009-08-26 11:39:02 PM  
OK, am I the only one who read the headline and thought it said the business partner fathered the children by letter from overseas?

/Yeah, wasn't so sure how that one would work

hmm... not that I necessarily agree with it, but that made perfect sense to me. I guess I haven't had enough to drink today.

Will he win the court case for the money? Will he still love the two children as his own? Was there way too many people hooking up and breaking up in that article? These and other questions will be answered in the next episode of Soap.

Maybe subby meant for the img1.fark.net tag to apply to the man's slutty filthy lying biatch whore asshole coont of a wife and his double-crossing butt-twang prick of a business partner.

I hope he wins enough to retire in style and never has to work again in his life. Unfaithful cheating slutty biatch.
 
2009-08-26 11:44:44 PM  
This happened to a guy I know. Wife messed around on him and they got a divorce. He paid child support and when the kid got older he realized it wasn't his. Blood test later he took her to court over it. Long legal battle later he got his money back. Funny thing is he still sees the kid from time to time and every year birthday and christmas he buys presents. As he put it, "She's a biatch but it's not little mans fault."

Most women plan for the man with the most money to pay, I had a girl I was seeing try and do that to me when I knew she was seeing someone else but I made more money than the other guy so she tried to nail me with the support.

Some women are just evil and if a guy isnt the father then he shouldnt have to pay a dime no matter what the kids are led to believe since all that will breed is resentment and fark the kids up even more when he wont even talk to them because mommy is a whore.

Can we haz mandatory DNA testing of all kids at birth nao plz? kk thnx.

I'm a chick and I think it's stupid to expect him to not to sue for his money back. Kids not his = money not yours!

Whether the kids are yours or not, if the court decides that it's in the child's best interest for you to continue paying child support, then they're going to make you continue paying it. It may be farked up for you, but it happens all the time.

Once a precedent of support for children has been established, a spouse, usually the husband is farked.

Yeah, but from the way it goes down sometimes, you'll still be paying child support for someone else's kids.

This is not true in a lot of jurisdictions in the U.S. You have to reacknowledge paternity from the moment you discover that the kids are not yours in order to be forced to keep paying after they leave you (this situation doesn't really crop up if you are still together). Basically the moment you find out, if you drop everything and leave, you will at least not be forced to pay future child support. You can get back child support you already paid usually if they can stick it to the real father, but in some cases and in some jurisdictions you might be screwed.

I don't understand how any woman could do that: give a man the greatest responsibility (and hopefully joy) of his life but have it all be a lie. I know that women like this are biatches, ubercoonts, etc; but it should feel as morally wrong as rape or victimizing a helpless person.
