Stay At Home Dads are a Good Thing!!!

This article from Huffington Post, and the related video on the benefits to children of stay at home, and the abilities of fathers to be good parents identifies a cultural trend that I am happy to be part of!!!!

It says that men make excellent parents and that the cultural bias that mothers are naturally better is more a matter of they’ve had more practice, than actual parenting skills. As women have entered the workforce and more men stay home, we’re going to see this myth, like so many others, fall by the roadside.

Most of the men fighting for Child Custody I represent would do ANYTHING FOR THEIR CHILDREN. It’s one of the reasons they work so hard, which tragically, becomes the millstone around their necks that the ex-wife uses. I address the strategic issue of whether to move or not in this article posted at The Good Men Project.

I sent out a press release this past week. I offered to give Kyle Boller a free pre-nuptial agreement, prior to his marriage to that ill-fated beauty queen Carrie Prejean, and I offered to do his eventual divorce from her for free. divorce cake for prenuptial

Prejean, who rose to national fame with her very public condemnation of same-sex marriage in the 2009 Miss USA contest, based on her devout religious beliefs, and then reached international fame with the fight over publication of her “sex tape” married Boller on Friday, July 2 at The Grand Del Mar hotel in San Diego.

This is a marriage that has a high probability of failure, not because of Ms. Prejean’s bigoted and homophobic statements, nor her inability to live up to the standards she holds others to, but the fact that it is a marriage of a professional athlete and a celebrity seeker. We’ve all seen it thousands of times. These marriages have two people who are going in different directions. And that is a major problem in marriages. My own experience with a long term relationship that broke up, is that we are both wonderful people. But with very different wants and directions.

My ex is a very fair skinned, red haired man of Welsh extraction who shuns the heat and sun of the desert. I crave it. I love the ocean and swimming, him, not so much. Like, not at all. It’s rather like I wanted to go North and he wanted to go East, neither is right or wrong, but our wants were just not lining up. When I realized that, it was amazing how quickly the heat and anger of a breakup dissipated. It’s what has allowed us to remain, if not become better, friends.

In California more than 60% of first marriages end in divorce, especially of people in their 20’s, but what is lesser known is that divorce rates for Evangelical Christians, such as Ms. Prejean, still runs at more than 33%.  This, coupled with a report conducted by Professional Athletes Outreach that states that two years after retirement, 78% of N.F.L. players are bankrupt, jobless or divorced, it may be have been wise for Mr. Boller to consider a good prenuptial agreement.
