A Father's Love: Answering By Our Own Experience
Still familiarizing my path around Hub pages I found a question by Adikari: Why people do not much consider about the father's love? This is one of those questions which the answer will be forced by own experiences, perspectives and values. And the answer gets kind of complicated with diverse situations which nature, society and mankind forces them in ways.
Trying hard to be objective and using common sense I will say...that people come from a mother by a father. Those months inside the womb gives a deep connection (Our bodies change, we have to take more care of ourselves because the baby lives by us...the mother). While the father is near as his actions makes him near the person which is limited by mom's body (Example: touching and talking to the baby through the belly)
The Balance In Creation
A family is an institution consisting in father, mother and children created by God where each member has a privileged place.
Yes, of course their are without children and still will be called "family". We see women raising their children alone even fathers by themselves...that is also known as family. To be a family all that it is required is another individual other than yourself. Friends are many times felt and considered like they are the only family they have. couples
Creation is balanced and from the beginning God instituted the "family"; in Genesis 1:28 reads as follow: "God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
No More No Less
Each member of a family has a respectable position. No one is better than the other and we are called to love each one same way and honored their individuality.
"Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
"Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching." Proverbs 1:8
Colossians 3:18-21 "Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord."
Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.
A father's love
Have you search, read, study, watch about animal's parenthood. It is just an understandable behavior. When I lose hope in humanity, all I need is read or watch about animals life and I go back to faith.

We need to learn when we do not know how to do something. Open the doors of acknowledgment and gain lessons and wisdom from those that do things right. Animals have an amazing road walked with true wonderful experiences.
Females seahorses deposit their eggs to pouch that male seahorses have. This is so incredible, but true. The male will fertilize the eggs once they are deposit and will incubate them for around forty five days until they are complete seahorses.
A father's love
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal
Why people do not much consider about the father's love?
Because they have not experience what real love is about.
1 Corinthians 13 shows us how to know what true love is.
