I was scared to death I would only be allowed to see my sons four days a month. I bent over backwards and gave up many things naively because I feared the worst. In the end, I was lucky I was able to have my sons every weekend and have dinner with them during the week. My agreement is seen as a victory even by my attorney's standards. I'm certainly thankful I get that much time because it could have easily been worse.

I realize there is a whole other side of this argument from a female perspective. My wife voiced how it wasn't her intent to judge single fathers or to be overly critical.
Instead, she viewed it as a cautious measure when considering who she, as a single mother, chose to date. She admitted she felt tremendous gravity in her serious dating relationships to weigh what "kind" of father those men would be around her children. Some were classified as "divorced dads" and did not make the cut to even be around her daughters.
I can empathize with her explanation, because I was very choosy about who my kids would meet too. The difference is that I didn't assume the worst. That doesn't make her protective stance with her daughters wrong, just a different approach.

I guess I just find it sad that societally, we assume the worst when it comes to men and fatherhood, especially in the case of custody. I do believe that with time, we can prove that we can be and ARE great parents in our own right and eradicate the stereotypes. The onus is on us, men. We need to own our fatherhood and show how marvelous we all are at being "just" a dad, and that makes us great fathers, too.
