Buddy came back 9 months in Afghanistan to be with his wife during her delivery. She gives birth to a black baby in front of everyone at the hospital. She wants him to stay or pay for child support and says that it's his fault that he wasn't there so she got lonely.
My buddy is heartbroken/pissed and punching the wall right now. I don't want to approach him cos he's a marine and you don't want to get in between a marine and a wall especially when he's losing it.
Any advice on what to tell him? I don't think he will stay with her.

- Divorce her but pay child supportVote B
- Stay with her and try to work it outVote C

This is a most precarious, not to mention, Most Embarrassing situation. And Of course, a slap in the face to the "frustrated father."
I don't blame him in the least for Not wanting to stick around for the drama and diapers. Tell your buddy, Sure as building blocks, Would be plenty of THAT. No doubt about it.
He is Not obligated to pay for baggage that doesn't belong to him, so might I suggest he get a DNA test to prove that the kid Isn't his (for legality sake), and this way he has ammo for the future.
However, if he does go to divorce court with his cheating cheetah, her lawyer could possibly get her "alimony pay," in which he would have to support her bum bump until she decides to remarry either---black or white again.
Tell him I am so sorry. Yes, loneliness was most likely her excuse, but cheating is Not, and although I am not one to judge nor sweep dirt in someone Else's doorway, there was absolutely NO REASON for her to have gotten herself "barefoot and pregnant" with any man's baby, especially Now, where NO ONE can show face to even hide The Fact. xx2
