Ward Cleaver was the model father of the 1950s. The model father of the socially engineered 2010s could be Mark Langridge, a homosexual who is being sued for child support by a dysfunctional lesbian “family” he donated sperm to help create:
He was not named on the birth certificates of the two children, and played no role in their upbringing — but the Child Support Agency insists he has to pay £26 a week to support them.
He says he cannot afford the payments, which will add up to £8,000 before both children reach adulthood.
The 47-year-old book-keeper from Essex has been in a relationship with his partner Shaun Keeble, 37, for 17 years. …
Mr Langridge and Mr Keeble met the [lesbian couple that wanted babies] in a gay nightclub in Southend in 1997, and became good friends. …
He said he was surprised when introduced as their father and later advised the children to ask their mother to explain the facts of their birth.
The two couples eventually drifted apart, and apart from occasional letters from the girls Mr Langridge has had no contact with the family since 2004.
Compounding his woes,
He said the biological mother’s former partner continues to live near the former family home and sees the girls at weekends — but is not being chased for child support. …
The only way he can protest against the CSA’s ruling is by taking his case to a judicial review, which could cost in the region of £60,000.
All traditions serve a purpose or they would not survive to become traditions. The purposes of the traditional family are both too numerous and too obvious to list.
