Another thing that makes it so bad is Child Support.
I've got two sons from my first wife. I pay out about $3000 a month in child support. She's had the audacity to tell me it wasn't enough and that if they could take my entire check and force me into living in a ditch and hitchhiking to work, then its what I should do because as a dad, I owe it to them.
Now, my main issue is that in the two times I've been unemployed in the past few years between jobs, I've burned thru my savings and 401ks because after they take 1/2 of my unemp check, I'm left to live off $800 a month.
She on the other hand, hasn't worked a day in her life. She got lucky and marrrived to someone who had family money and their family business. He prob brings home close to what I do, yet she gets a new Navigator every 2 years and vacations in the Carribean twice a year.
The boys get some spending change out of it, and nice clothes, etc. But I'll be damned if I'm nothing but a DNA matching ATM. And when they want something big, they call to ask me to spend what little I'm left with to drive to them.
Imdont mind paying CS, but there needs to be a limit for professional birthers who refuse to work and expects everything handed to them from the gov.
I've got maybe 2 months left and its over, but still, when I need money to eat and put even a shitty roof over my head, Louisiana CS Enforcement only cares about getting their 5%, even if I have to sleep in my car and eat paper napkins.
Child Support needs to be rebooted from the ground floor up. And Soc Security retirement.
So by the time I pay over 30% in taxes, SS tax, and medicaid, halfof my net goes to an entitlement Christian daughter of a Preacher. What I'm left with is just enough to pay for my fuel, food, cell, and rent / utils while I'm still expected to find away to provide for my youngest son that lives with me.
Honestly, after realizing that Satan's minions rule the government the world over, there really is an attack on the Family as we knew it pure JFK era. If you pay tons of taxes of any color and men get another Child Tax known as Child Support along with the unlucky men paying Alimony as well as 1/2 of the pensions and retirement ACCTS, there is no desire to get married again or have children.
I realize my situation is different in most aspects, but both us have a leech securely attached to my pocket book.
