Who is going to decide is a spouse filed for divorce for selfish reasons or for valid reasons. There are valid reasons for divorce.
Clearly, Galt will decide, which will likely mean that men's reasons were valid, while women's reasons are selfish.
You have go to be kidding me... do you really think that children are going to excuse their father (or mother) for being a dead beat parent? Do you really think that a child will say |
"That's ok dad. I get that you were man a mom so you took it out on me. I was just fine with oatmeal for dinner a few times a week, always second hand clothing.. etc.
And by the way dad, how's that new house of yours with the pool that you bought with the child support you never paid. I understand why I never get to visit and swim in the pool. It's 'cause mom is a *****. I get it"
They are your kids, regardless of whether they stay with you or not, if your wife leaves you for good reasons or not. My kids would have had no say if my wife decided to leave me, so why would I not support them. Unfortunately, Galt is so bitter over his divorce that he would do this to his kids to spite his wife. I actually feel pity for him.
