Three judges of the High Court ruled that there could be no action for deceit in cases such as Mr Magill's, as they fell into the private realms of a marriage in which partners' obligations to one another were moral and ethical, not legal.
Yeah I'm sure the man's wallet is just public property, let's spread the good stuff around, here you feminists have a go, lawyers take some, Ms. Ex you get the prime cut for bringing this well-fed example into our midst.
So its telling the truth about a child's father is just a woman's moral responsibility - its not her legal responsibility to tell the truth about something as major and life-changing as bringing a child into this world. Nice. I wonder if it would be just a moral obligation to tell my wife how much I earn, or whether I received a promotion or not at work. No, her lawyers have the right and the ability to get everything and anything related to my finances from me. Do women get any responsibilities at all?
It just sickens me that brazenly anti-male rulings like these are being made everyday around the world. In the US the argument is couched as, "Well, the child only knows you as a Dad, and Dads are nothing but walking wallets anyway, so keep paying buster."
Some may disagree with my radical stance, but here it is anyway: It is going to get much worse before it gets better. Exercise your options - don't marry, don't cohabit if you live in a state or nation where cohabitation is a license to rape a man, and don't have children unless you're damn damn DAMN sure your partner is a saint who will never kick you out of your own house and out of your own kids' life. Oh, and get a vasectomy if you are reasonably sure you don't want to be suckered. The birth control Pill for Men is but a distant dream at present and this is the only contraception alternative we have to abstinence.
