"...That everyday people, they lie to God too. So what makes you think, that they won't lie to you."

These powerful lyrics are from Lauryn Hill's song, "Forgive Them Father". This applies so often to issues of paternity. Paternity can have such a crucial impact on a family and these lyrics should lead fathers in non-committed or questionable relationships to DNA testing centers. Instead, people choose to be driven by excuses and misconceptions. These excuses often end up costing the family extreme financial and mental anguish when the truth is finally revealed.

No time or money

This excuse negates the first two because the alleged father is trying to be responsible. But is he being responsible on a lie that has not been revealed yet?
