Yep, my husband's male cousin took 12 weeks of paternity leave to take care of their newborn. His wife took 1 week of vacation for the birth, then went back to work.
When I worked and my daughter would get sick, my husband and I took turns staying home to take care of her. So in that respect, neither one of us took off more time than the other.
ETA: Oh yeah, I also knew another couple who split up their leave. The wife took 6 weeks maternity leave, then the husband took 6 weeks paternity leave. Split it right down the middle.

Im still yet to see anyone take a stance on if this whole topic revolves around our Biology and Genetics, plus the social boundaries we all construct.
I didnt expect to get attacked and flamed this much, I should've known better.
"Deny Ignorance" psh, out the window.
I will provide an argument for my stance that will consist of many real world examples, most of them I have witnessed over time.
Take two aspiring college professors, one male and one female of course. Both of their end goals are to teach at a college for their career and achieve tenure.
Whenever It was myself and a fellow female co worker things always went the same.
