Default Boyfriend over child

Can't really say am shocked, I am sure similar stunts happens a lot. One minute they want the kid(s) all to themselves, next they want to jump into another relationship because they are lonely, and need someone to help do the heavy lifting.

Kids interest in pursuit of personal frolic....this isn't gender specific either. Just want to clarify that

I think you're being a bit literal in your understanding of what he meant by "heavy lifting". I doubt we're talking about actual physical objects as much as ones contribution to a difficult task.

Allow me to help:

heavy lifting - definition of heavy lifting by The Free Dictionary

Funny, this particular definition even involved a boss expecting a female co-worker to do "the heavy lifting" on a project.

You're implying women do it because they are bad but the reality is that women can do it because they CAN like any man might do it in similar circumstances.

Its all social constructs the problem is family court is forcing us all to the "take care of yourself" mentality.... while society still has a man breadwinner woman stay at home slant to it....
