Maybe he'll do a good job of it. Maybe the kid will never miss what it hasn't had. I just think it's a shame if they never get to know their mother (even if the intent was never for her to be there). The children should be put first is all I'm saying.
How do you know the child isn't being put first? I don't know the man personally but how do you know the baby isn't being loved and cared for?
We have seen many women utterly screw up their children and fail at being a parent, if having a mother is all that is required for a baby to grown up to be balanced and content how come so many individuals descend into the abyss? All a child needs is love, good role models, food in its belly and a roof over its head, the gender of however is providing that is a mute point.
