Why do women lie about the paternity of the child
Paternity - Fathers deserve to know
Indeed it is only the mother who knows the real father of the child and that men can be fathers of 'faith' or fathers of 'probability'. Nowadays it has become very common for women to date more than one guy at a time justifying that it gives them enough options to make good choice and in most cases when she falls pregnant, out of expedience it has become very common to points at the one who is economically independent even when she is perfectly aware that the poor soul is not the father to child. What surprises me is that there seem to be no conscious whatsoever on the part of the mother about the consequences of the alleged father coming to know the truth and the trauma the same could have both on the child and its alleged father. what if when the child grows to resemble the other man? what if the real father resorts to blackmail? I write this with full understanding that there are lot of brave mothers out there who have come out to tell the truth to their husbands/partners in the interest of the child and also not to continue living a lie - but still there are also a number of mothers out there who are still keeping the truth from their so called 'loved partners'. Is it so difficult to tell the truth when it comes to paternity? Women & men out there help me understand.
