I can tell you from personal experience that many people are not fathered by the father they believe to be their own. I have known a dozen people at least who were not the child of the dad the mother married. It is far more common then people think. Women will get pregnant by one they favor but marry the "better provider" man.
Make of that what you will, but it is far more common then you would think. One scientists put the number at about 15 percent. My experience says that may be right.

This is nothing new or surprising. It has been happening since the dawn of time.
As I said, "unbounded" or not, if sex is the primary focus than that responsibility is NOT taken seriously. It becomes nothing more then a pastime, which is evident considering she already had a child on the way.

Pretty sure best invention is not sleeping with someone you shouldnt trust to begin with. Even if it was condoms its not unknown some people to poke holes in them.
It saddens me that your opinion only changed after you lost years of your life.

While it is commendable that the OP was willing to care for said child, though the reality happens to be, that it is not his responsbility at all.
