in France paternity tests are illegal because they feel if all the guys realized just how many of them are raising kids they only think are theirs, it will cause societal upheaval. So in the interest of preserving the peace they outlaw paternity tests so the guy can't know whether or not the kid is his. ...it seems to be a frighteningly common thing. And not just in France. ..and it's not anything new, either. it's f**ked up,..a very f**ked up thing to do that to someone. Knowingly make some poor dude a cuckold,..and then he's bonding with a kid that isn't his? And how devastated would a guy be to have a family and love his kid and then find out the kid isn't his and his wife is a whore? Makes me sick just thinking about it. Humans do some nasty stuff to each other. But anyway,..yeah. Outlawed in France for the reasons of maintaining society. Which makes it sound like it's not a rare occurrence at all.
