A quick question

When you find out that the child isn’t yours

A serious question, what would you do if you raised your child for a number of years, let’s say 5 or 6 and then you found out that your child wasn’t really yours? This type of situation is hard to deal with, you could say that you’d get rid of the child which would be justice for you however that’s unfair on the child or you could keep raising the child, knowing that you’ve been taken for a fool.

It would be incredibly awkward to ever have to deal with such a situation but it does happen, personally speaking I wouldn’t be able to bring myself to keep the child, I’d have to get rid of the child and my partner and start over again. Some people would gladly keep the child due to a bond that they may have established with them which is completely understandable, on top of that keeping the child would make you a good person (a much better person than me at the very least) but that means that you have to be able to stomach the lies.

If a woman can lie to man about the identity of a child’s father after cheating on him then imagine all the other things that she must have lied to him about. For some people it might not matter but that level of dishonesty is unacceptable. It’s one of the worst things that could be done to somebody, to make them a father only for the man to find that his life as a father was a lie.

At the same time, it doesn’t necessarily make the woman a bad person because whilst lying to the man, she’s acknowledging the fact that every child deserves two parents (something that my earlier confession indicates I’m not doing). There are many factors that make this a hard situation to deal with, as getting rid of the child and keeping it are both good and bad things. Truth be told this is just something that’s interesting to think about.

(In case you’re wondering, I got this question whilst listening to Gold Digger by Kanye West).
