Could be that dad is not real father, report shows (Is that kid really yours?)
reuters via Yahoo News ^ | Aug 11, 2005 | SOURCE: Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, August 2005.

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Perhaps one out of every 25 dads could unknowingly be raising another man's child, a finding that has huge health and social implications, according to report released Wednesday.

Exposing so-called paternal discrepancy -- when a child is identified as being biologically fathered by someone other than the man who believes he is the father -- could lead to family violence and the breakup of many families. On the other hand, leaving paternal discrepancy hidden means having the wrong genetic information, which could have health consequences.

A UK-based research team reviewed scientific research dealing with paternity published between 1950 and 2004 and reports that rates of paternal discrepancy range from less than 1 percent to as much as 30 percent.

The investigation also showed that becoming pregnant at a younger age, low socioeconomic status, and being in a long-term relationship rather than being married seem to be linked to greater likelihood of paternal discrepancy.

It is generally believed that rates of paternal discrepancy are less than 10 percent. A paternal discrepancy rate of 4 percent means that one in 25 families could be affected.

However, soaring rates of paternity testing in North America and Europe means more cases of paternal discrepancy will be identified in the years ahead, Professor Mark A. Bellis, from the Center for Public Health at the Liverpool John Moores University, and colleagues point out in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

In the United States, for example, rates of paternity testing more than doubled between 1991 and 2001. The increasing use of genetic testing for diagnosis and treatment of disease as well as in judicial procedures will also yield more opportunities to uncover cases where a father, unbeknownst to him, is not the biological parent.

"Modern genetic techniques continue to open a Pandora's box on hitherto hidden aspects of human sexual behavior," the investigators write.

Exposing such situations will inevitably affect not only deceived dads but also their family and potentially the biological father. Leaving paternal discrepancy undiagnosed, on the other hand, leaves those affected with incorrect genetic information that could prove harmful.

What's urgently needed, the authors say, is guidance on how and when paternal discrepancy should be exposed.

At present, most cases that are inadvertently identified are ignored by whoever uncovers the situation.

"However, in a society where services and life decisions are increasingly influenced by genetics, our approach to paternal discrepancy cannot be simply to ignore this difficult issue but must be informed by what best protects the health of those affected," Bellis and colleagues argue.

Real father is man who rasies the children regardless of the genetics.

Agree. And any guy cuckolded should divorce his wife on grounds of adultery and get custody of the child.

Eventually, someone is going to come up with an inexpensive genetic test, and our whole society is going to fall apart at the seams.

Only becasue it already has.

The father is the mother's husband. That has been the law for centuries and still is and should be.

That society has fallen apart (all sorts of unwed mothers) and refusal to take responsibility on the part of men (impregnating women who are not their wives or whom they do not marry) would cause the problem.

If you are married to a woman, her children are yours no matter if the biological progenitor is another man.

But we no longer believe in marriage or responsibilty for male heads of houselds.

Takes two to tango, me bucko.

Short of rape, takes one to allow sexual access. The girls need raise their standards. Some suggestions might be:

Would her make a good father?
Can he support me?
Will he marry me first?

Problem solved.

However, I am finding it hard to believe this is actually a "new" problem

It's not. Our civilization, which the liberals have set out to destroy, worked well in that a male had responsibility for his family and his children were those given birth to by his wife -- period.

Liberal racism and belief in genetic destiny over spiritual committment and relations, seen in all the liberal racism around, has made these things issues.

So what will prevent brother/sisters/fathers/daughters etc from having childern? Considering less that 22% of people ever leave thier hometowns, this could be a significant issue in the next few years.

Hey, where are we going and why are we in this basket?

>>Most people know who their relatives are, but not these "mis-fatherd" children<<

That is my point exactly. These "mis-fatherd" children will not know who their sibs/fathers are and therefore the likelihood that they will have children together is increased.

The US census bureau posted the 22% figure as those that ever permanently move more than 25 miles from their birth place.

Anyone know the "out of wedlock" birth rate in the Afircan-American community?
Nationwide, 70%. In some communities, 90%.

This of course, is only incidentally related to the story at hand.

Out of wedlock does not necessarily indicate that some poor fool is hocking his car to pay for what he thinks is his child.

It more likely just means that another unwed mother is drawing wellfare for another fatherless kid.

It's hard when all the social/ gov't policies, the MSM and the "new morality" are saying exactly the opposite of what we try to model at home. They undermine good parenting at every turn.

At least our kids have the benefit of parents and values. It's not a guarantee, but good insurance. All we can do is pray for the rest.

In Trinidad there was a family
With much confusion as you will see
It was a mama and a papa, and a boy who was grown
Who wanted to marry and have a wife of his own

He found a young girl, that suited him nice
And went to his papa to ask his advice
His papa said son, I have to say no
This girl is your sister but your mama don't know

Woe, is me, shame and scandal in the family
Woe, is me, shame and scandal in the family

A week went by and the summer came 'round
And soon the best cook in the island he found
He went to his papa to name the date
But papa shook his head and to him he said
You can't marry this girl, I have to say no
This girl is your sister but your mama don't know

Woe, is me, shame and scandal in the family
Woe, is me, shame and scandal in the family

He went to his mama and covered his head
And told his mama what his papa had said
His mama she laughed, she said go, man, go
Your daddy ain't your daddy, but your daddy don't know

Woe, is me, shame and scandal in the family
Woe, is me, shame and scandal in the family

I figure the childern in the next generation will have significant health issues relating to this problem because of sib's etc having childern.

Good point. My father-in-law sat me down and went over the rules when I went to pick her up for our first date. One of them was, "Sex before marriage will get you killed. I mean it....I will literally kill you."

It was awkward for a first date, but at least we all knew what was expected.

This is hardly news. Various studies showing the same thing have been publicized for the past several years. It was no surprise to me the first time, and still isn't.

Certain members of my family know that my grandmother's sister was really her half-sister. The more naive members of the family (including the woman's daughter) have no idea. It had been speculated for years, due to her striking resemblance to a male friend of her mother's, and certainly her official "father" knew pretty early on. She obviously knew herself, since she confirmed it to my father on her deathbed, but I have no idea how old she was when she found out. At any rate, it certainly didn't cause the family to disintegrate.

The boys need to raise their standards too. It's not just about the women.

You are correct in that it only takes one to allow sexual access. However, just because I have access doesn't mean I'm gong to use it. The males in these relationships have just as much responsibility to control their behavior as the women do.

Women are evil. I've never heard of a husband lying to his wife about a child's maternity.

Reminds me of what was probably the only funny comedy line that Ellen Degenerate ever said: "I'm a single woman, no kids. At least... none that I... know about".

Yes, but the impact would be much greater if standards were implemented by the girls. The girls have an easier time controlling their sexual urges at that age than Captain Hard-On does.

Besides, if you think about it, the standard has always been set by the women. Men have always been happy to do whatever is required - right now it's disgustingly little.

You should hear it sung. Very funny.

It also shows the downside to the "tomcat" male who wants to be profligate with his seed; chances are that while he is out messing around creating sons and daughters who will never know him, his own children will also not be his own (genetically).

Humans are mostly monogamous in pair bonds. The male's deviate from this norm by trying to be a "tomcat"; but with mixed results (as the song attests). For myself, I would rather raise one son or daughter with my culture, beliefs and values that would be my friend in life WITHOUT any of my genetics; than to have ten sons and ten daughters who who are mine genetically but don't know me from Adam and would want to kick my butt if they knew who I was. The females deviate from monogamous pair bonds with "crypto paternity"; where they rope a moderately successful male who WILL help them raise a child, while actually securing the "best" DNA for their child by siring it with a highly successful male who would probably NOT help them raise the child (probably has some of his own already).

Saw it happen myself once. He was (and still is) a good man and fought to keep the boy who had been his son for six years. She was a disgusting b*tch who showed not an ounce of remorse or shame.

Worse was that this is a military family, and since they had no immediate family nearby, this all had to come out in front of the command and a bunch of people who, although they were (and still are) his shipmates, are essentially strangers. He had to lean on his shipmates and his supervisor (me) for comfort, which couldn't have been easy.

It was terrible to watch, but it had to be worse to endure. Everyone knew, because she made it a point to tell everyone she could to try to humiliate him. Sailors joke about this sort of thing (long deployments and all), but it's quite another thing to face it. We all rallied around him.

The day I heard was also the day I was first told that I would never make a good chief, because my advice to him was to drive home and kill her now. I would swear in court that he was under a lot of mental strain (which he was) and finally snapped. Frankly, I don't think any court in the world would have convicted him.

Yep; women are evil; men NEVER lie to their wives about the women they cheat with, or the children they've secretely sired.

I've never heard of a woman secretely married simultaneously to more than one man. (That is NOT to say I don't personally know of a case of a woman having three "husbands" simultaneously, but they all knowingly lived together...in Berkeley, CA.

Neither men nor women are necessarily evil; but sluts & whores, and rakes & roues are. And their purveyors and procurors even more so.

And it was for situations just like this...bring baby home, test DNA, proceed from there.

And don't wait to long to test. - Tom

This article was in the Minneapolis (Minnesota) Star Tribune Tuesday/March7/1995

He is not the father, but must pay support Court: Limitations period ran out.

A Ramsey County man must continue paying child support for a 5 year old child even though paternity tests show that he is not the father, the Minnesota Court of Appeals has ruled.

Eric Dembly Jr. and Ann Christine DeGrande signed a document when the child was born in August 1989 saying that he was the father, His child support was increased to $157 a month as his income rose.

In January 1993, Dembly requested a blood test because DeGrande had told him that he was not the child's father, court records say. The tests concluded that Dembly was not the father.

But in a 2-1 ruling to be filed today, the court said Dembly is still liable for child support because he did not take the blood test until after the three year statute of limitations had expired. The above is a hand-transcription of the first few paragraphs of this story which had an ASSOCIATED PRESS byline.

But your kids will, and not because they doubt their parentage, but precisely because they trust it. They'll do the tests for medical reasons, or (as in my case) for genealogical reasons, or maybe just to see what they're made of. If they doubted you were their father, they might hesitate, for fear of having their suspicions confirmed. But they have no doubts, so they have nothing to fear from the test.

Others, equally sure, have surprises in store.

Anybody who believes that a husband could EVER do anything about an unfaithful wife hasn't read Chaucer lately. Or old Irish ballads like "Rocking the cradle and none of my own."

This has ALWAYS been a problem. That is why the law developed the legal presumption that children born into a marriage are the offspring of the marriage.

Shep Smith just reported this story on his news show on FOX TV tonight. He mentioned that according to the study, these births are not necessarily caused by adultery, but by a pregnancy that was conceived before the marriage. That's what happened in the on e case I know of, but apparently it is not uncommon.

Kids can easily get your DNA off your toothbrush or comb as just two examples!

But, more important is your point about trust - yes, that is part of a mature relationship and I can see what you mean.

On the other hand - why aren't these paternity tests routinely done at the time of birth? Then, you could be sure you are taking the correct baby home from the hospital, and there is no issue that would come up later with your spouse.

In addition, such a routine practice would eliminate all these Maury Povitch type talk shows featuring a paternity test as "entertainment" (as when a mother is the "guest" along with three men, whom each don't know if he's the father of her kid. I find those shows truly repulsive.

I think if they did the government would end up with that data and I do not trust the government with such information. They are too intrusive as it is. And I do not think parents should have to give up their DNA unless it is voluntary.
