RE: How fairly are fathers treated in family court?

Don’t get married or have kids and you won’t have to suffer through this crap. For the man, there’s no benefit to getting married. None. Better to stay single and become a serial dater. Better for your career, your wallet, and your long-term sanity.

Harsh – and sad – but that’s what the system has created.

(Refer to “Leykis 101″ for the new rules.)

Just a thought.
