What got you talk­ing this week

CityPress - - Voices - Best news ever! I've seen our house­keeper raise three kids on her own, while her hus­band just left to marry another woman and have more kids. Till this day he has not given her a cent, while he has a good pay­ing job. There is no need for this law. Fa­ther

I wish this was in place way back when my chil­dren's fa­ther re­fused to pay main­te­nance and got away with it.

It won't work. Should the par­ent be re­trenched or dis­missed then the child will not get main­te­nance. Most com­pa­nies don't hire peo­ple who are black­listed.

Main­te­nance should be paid but at the same time the fa­ther's rights to his kids should also be looked at. As it stands, it's pa­thetic. I pay my main­te­nance while some other guy spends more time with my son and I don't have much say in the mat­ter. Faith Ke­abetswe Leburu via city­press.co.za You can­not de­fault on main­te­nance it's that sim­ple. You can de­fault on your cloth­ing ac­counts/ per­sonal loans/ car in­stal­ment but not main­te­nance coz that child suf­fers as a re­sult. @de­bru­in_piet I think any par­ent who doesn't want take care of their chil­dren must be locked up. That would solve this prob­lem ef­fec­tively.
