Many children grow up fatherless. In many of these cases it is because the father of the child does not want the child. This can be due to a number of reasons e.g the man could be married and perhaps prefers his own family or does not want his family to find out, the man may not believe that the child is biologically his, especially if the two don't have a loving and trusting relationship or due to a breakup between both parents.
Children without a father have been known to have difficulties in life. Girl children often seek a father in a boyfriend and may end up dating older men from a young age. Boy children often grow up with feminine qualities and may be emotional adults who struggle to make decisions. These are massive repercussions for any child.
Sometimes men decide to be fathers. They decide to take responsibility for their children, provide for their children and nurture them only to find that the children aren't actually theirs. Check out some of their stories.
