42. the reason they aren't risking homelessness/wellbeing
is because they're relying on others to pick up their slack.

He doesn't need to pay because her family is providing support. He doesn't need to pay because her husband has a job.

Please. I can guarantee if your friend marries a well-off woman, you won't be back here arguing that his child support should be increased, because his new wife should be expected to use her income to support his child.

It sounds like he has a good education (at leasst he ought to with that amount of loans). He has a decent career, though he had a few weeks or months without income. And so long as he doesn't drive like an ass, there will be no real consequences to him if he doesn't pay.

If you want to talk about teetering, let's be honest. He is not teetering on the edge of destruction.
