Fark has been the last place news gets posted to for quite awhile now. I usually just come here for the discussion after reading the news elsewhere and it usually takes hours before the story pops up here.

Paternity tests should be offered at every birth. Seriously.

Not sure I believe the story.

If it is true, every woman involved should be sterilized with forced abortions for the ones selling the tests.

 If offered then most husbands/wives will refuse it as to not risk pissing off their significant other. And they're pretty easy to get if you really do want one.

Check Chicago, I got 3 results when searching for "positive pregnancy test".

Over 200 miles away from me, but there are 3 also in the Dallas, TX area when I searched CL for the same thing.

Then offer them quietly. Perhaps write it into insurance requirements. Too many women tricking their poor husbands into raising someone else's bastard.

They should be required, but that's irrelevant to this particular type of deception, since these women are faking pregnancies.  You can't test a non-existence baby, and the lie becomes pretty obvious a few months down the road anyway, no test needed.

Translation: If the husband is offered a paternity test when the wife is present, he will firmly refuse to avoid conflict.

Reality: if the man has the chance to confirm the child is his without conflict, he will take it.

I know, I was just taking it a step further.

My best friend had an ex who used this tactic for months, claiming to be pregnant. He was all kinds of excited, he loved her, was totally ready to raise  kid, They got hitched. Couple months later she claimed to have an abortion, broke his heart. Came clean with the truth a few weeks later.

She was crazy, though.

In many (some?) states, if you do not object at the time the birth certificate is made, you are the father regardless of any paternity test in the future.  The test should be required by law before the birth certificate is issued.

People offering them for sale means nothing -- I can offer a paperback of The Da Vinci Code online for $1,000, but that doesn't mean anyone's going to buy it. I won't get really depressed unless there's actually a strong market for these things (a small part of that will be due to the fact that I threw all of my positive sticks away like a sane person instead of saving them to cash in).

I think it goes something like this:  Oops, birth control failed.  They quit using birth control for obvious reasons.  Girl actually gets pregnant.

These purchased test results could also be used to manipulate the actions and emotions of a current husband.

Showering his wife with affection at the good news and later gallantly escorting her through the tragedy of miscarriage.

In Florida at least you don't even have to be on the birth certificate if you're married. Even if the father doesn't have anything to do with the birth, If the mother can prove you were married at the time of conception then that kid is yours as far as the state is concerned. I had a friend leave his wife when he found out she was pregnant with another guys kid. The state still slapped him with child support because they were married at the time, even though his ex-wife admitted the boy wasn't his.

I don't know about that. I have a newborn son and was never asked anything, my wife did the paper work and *boom* he's mine. I agree that tests should be mandatory, however.

I have no doubts though, because Maury.

Yes, they could, though I expect that in the long run the loss will outweigh whatever short term gain there is.  If nothing else, I would think it would be good ammo at the inevitable divorce hearings, though not as good as actual infidelity.

Showering his wife with affection at the good news and later gallantly escorting her through the tragedy of miscarriage.

I'm not an expert on miscarriages, but I expect that faking one is significantly harder than faking a pregnancy test.  Still, you have a sneaky mind.

There was a case of some guy who was slapped with child support by the state.  The woman had picked his name out of the phone book.  Despite never having met the woman, he was forced to spend thousands of dollars in attorney fees fighting it, even after the woman admitted he wasn't the father.

Chimps do this. Most primates do, I believe.

While the alpha is making his rounds, some beta is farking his harem. He assumes the kids are his, of course.

You'd think that humans would be smart enough to assume otherwise.

Not just primates or even mammals. This has been observed in bullfrogs too. When the big boys are defending their territories and the females are getting all worked up, the little guys on the edge of the pond are fertilizing all the eggs. Of course they are likely to eat each other regardless of heritage. So there's that.

this is why I'm 31 years old, employed, own my own home and car, and am 100% *SINGLE*

After a few times of getting screwed over by the opposite sex... fark em...  I refuse to waste my time/money/energy on a woman who has a high chance of doing crap like this.

Too bad too -- because I'm generally a nice guy, i.e. I don't do drugs, hit women, waste money, screw around.

Every now and then I'll get me a piece of 'tang and call it a day.  Much better off in the long run.

Proverbs 21:9  "It's better to live in a corner on the roof than to share a house with a contentious woman."

Doubly so a con artist.

This is why men run like hell from commitment, ladies.  It's not "childish".  Treating a man like a child doesn't make him one.

It's self preservation.

To be honest, the only women I see complaining that good guys are disappearing are the horrible, immature, selfish ones with completely unrealistic expectations. All of my female friends my age (early 30s) are in stable relationships with good, mature, reliable men who have decent jobs and treat them well.

Man, I'd hate to mistrust my wife so much I felt I needed a paternity test, no offense to you all who feel like you would need one. Seems like that isn't a very strong foundation on which to build a future, let alone a family.
