36. Incorrect. Michigan is VERY gender neutral.
My step-father got custody of his three children THIRTY YEARS AGO. He can also re-ask for custody every six months. The courts look at what is in the best interest of the child; your guy is feeding you a line, and you seem to be buying it. Have you noticed he has an excuse for everything? "I don't have any money, which is why I can't hire an attorney to get custody of my kid, which is why the world is so horrible. Wah!"

Why don't you take a second, and think what YOU would be willing to go through for your kid? Would you sell your body on the street, if it was the only way for you to keep your kid fed? Or fill in the blank with whatever horrid SACRIFICE you would be willing to make for the health and happiness of YOUR BABY? Would you borrow money from your friends and family to pay for an attorney so you could get custody?

After you think of these things, you might want to ask yourself, why isn't this guy doing that? The answer is probably, because he doesn't really want to. Having a child in the house 24/7 is ... inconvenient for many people, despite the talk.
