If he is alive and irresponsible perhaps he shouldn't.

Sorry, but I was raised by a single mother. My father left shortly after my birth. I just take exception to people thinking that a single mother canít raise a responsible well adjust child. Later in life I became close with my father and I am thankful that I never knew the man that abandoned his family. That alcoholic womanizer was not the man I knew and love thirteen years later. Still I think my mother did a wonderful job of preparing me for life. I also appreciate my dad for not being there when he was too irresponsible to raise a child. I just donít think it takes a mother and a father to raise a child. One or the other will work just fine as long as they care about the child's wellbeing and put that first.
