As you state, it goes both ways. I know of a woman whose ex-husband contributed so little to help with their son that she actually recently lost her house and then her car after the son developed health issues a couple of years ago. She's a great mother, and every penny has gone to care for her son, but dad wasn't particularly worried about it. Her parents had helped, but they both died within about six months of each other. It's been very sad.

It seems though that the stereotype of good for nothing dads rears it's ugly head a lot more quickly than it does with moms, doesn't it?
