William Marotta told FoxNews.com he might never have agreed to provide sperm to Angela Bauer and her former partner, Jennifer Schreiner, had he known the legal morass that awaited him after responding to the women’s Craigslist ad for a donor in March 2009. The Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) recently filed a child support claim against Marotta after the couple filed for state assistance this year, leading the department to demand they provide the donor’s name so it could collect.
The 46-year-old machinist said he received notice in late October that he was being targeted by state officials to pay child support after the couple — who parted ways in 2010 but still co-parent their eight children ranging in age from 3 months to 25 years — were ordered by DCF officials to provide the sperm donor’s name. State officials argued that if the women did not identify the donor, the agency would deny health benefits due to withheld information.To their credit, the now broken up lesbian couple (who irresponsibly sought to have more children amidst an obviously shaky relationship), are on the guy's side, so far.
It comes as no surprise to me that these two women were unable to provide for their children and reached out to the man (big government) for support. It is also unsurprising that after only eight years and several children the two have ended their relationship. I know the struggle Christians go through to understand and accept all of the responsibilities of their Covenant with God in their marriages. I can only imagine the challenges faced when your relationship isn't even condoned by God.
What makes me laugh, due to my twisted sense of humor, is that this man was attempting to be the hero by providing this oh so committed and loving couple the sperm they need in order to bring about life (they can't support) and he's the one who gets slapped.
I've always told my children, even if you think you'll have an ally when you side with the devil, watch out, Satan laughs at you. He's not your friend, no matter your allegiance to him.
