it would depend what state they were in, as the laws on these sorts of things vary greatly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

reading the question again, the mother of the kid has all the rights, the 'rich mother and father' don't have any rights. They can buzz off.

i dont think the father would not be supporting the child, just his family right? thats the way i understood this, and i think its a pretty obvious answer that the mother should keep the kid. if you really wanted to punish them you should have asked if they would have sex with their mother to save their father's life...now thats a question....

Yeah, that won't cost a teacher his job.

If the father's family were diabolical freaks, as all rich people are of course, then the mother should run like hell with her kid and protect him. Or possibly choose to be an adult and get along with her husband so the child could grow up without trauma. But that's just crazy talk......


I think you might be reading too much into the question. If I bring up Hitler, am I suggesting that all Germans are evil? Of course not.

Also, I don't think you fully understand the question. The parents get along as amiably as possible, given the situation. It's the in-laws that are the problem.

A three year old would definitely have an opinion on this. Trust me, three year olds have opinions on everything and know what they want.

The three year old would want to see both parents (provided that neither one is horrible to him) and is not that interested in material things (of course they always want new things but a $2 McDonalds happy meal toy is just as interesting to him as a playstation).

The mother should tell the father what a horrible thing his parents have suggested and appeal to his good nature to ensure that they share custody and that the child has all of his needs seen to - he doesn't need luxury or the promise of a Harvard education. He needs his basic needs seen to, both parents in his life and enough attention and care that he grows up to be a happy well adjusted kid.

I'd have sex with the female monkey, but I'd be afraid of getting ebola.

that reminds me of the Steve Martin movie The Man With Two Brains...there's a scene where they want to put his woman's brain into a gorilla and he says "aw man, i can BANG* a Gorilla"

I'd assume you'd have sex with a female monkey if you had the chance, anyway.

You produce a monkey and we'll just have to see.

But if I get there, and that monkey is a dude, I'm bailing man!
