Why do some women ignore their children's needs for the sake of a bloke?

Probably would agree but what about the father? He's irresponsible too.

My mother did this to me 36 years ago. Times never change. sad

but he wasn't there for his kids either was really my point. I wouldn't condone her behaviour but the errant father is always excused of any responsibility and it bugs me.

Because our basic urge is to procreate so mating has priority over the welfare of existing children...

...and because they were a pair of morons.

Some women are so desperate not to be alone they will put up with any old idiot and neglect their children rather than stand on their own two feet.

The worrying thing is their children will grow up to think this behaviour is normal and carry on the same themselves...sad really.

Because women think with their genitals sometimes, just like men.

Some women do. A lot of men walk out the door and have nothing more to do with their children at all. What's worse?

You kind of grow up knowing some men are irresponsible prats but I just kind of assume women are more intelligent and caring.

I dont understand why people who dont intend to care for their children actually keep having them - why not bypass the kids and just live life as an irresponsible shag fest if thats what you want.
