As a father of three who has just been served my breakfast in bed I am grateful for father's day and the fact I will be spoilt all day by my kids. However, all people like me should remember that many other fathers will not have this treatment.
If I was to seperate from my wife the chances of me getting full custody of the kids are very slight indeed. Is this because I would be a worse career than my wife? Is it because I cannot provide for my children? No, the reason I would be unlikely to get custody of my kids is the fact that I am a man.
So happy fathers day to all but don't forget to think of the good men out there who have been descriminated against and deprived of equal rights in terms of bringing up their children. Also don't forget that it could be you if the laws do not change.
