A Facebook user has condemned men who carry out DNA tests to ascertain their child’s paternity. Ugo Abunyie said DNA/paternity tests are destroying marriages and asked men to stop “contesting” the paternity of the children born by their wives.
According to the politician, in his Igbo custom, every child born by a wife in a marriage automatically belongs to her husband.
He opined that many men now doubting the paternity of their own children is in fact not biological children of their own fathers, he says why try to ascertain your child’s paternity when your own paternity is in doubt as well…
In Igbo custom and culture, every child born by a wife in a marriage automatically belongs to her husband.
There is no contesting it.
DNA/ paternity test is out to destroy the marriage institution as we know it.See Also
Most of our fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers were not actually the biological children of their fathers.
So sometimes I ask, what do you want to do with a paternity test when your own paternity is in doubt?
