Why do fathers abandon their children?

This is a hard topic to tackle. We know that not all fathers do this, obviously. But we also can't ignore that it happens.

The only thing that makes sense to me is they aren't emotionally or mentally mature.

Maybe they don't know how to handle conflict so instead of looking into their rights they just bail.

Perhaps because our society doesn't totally frown on it, like it should.

What do you think?

    Society, biology even, seems to mate it easier for a father to bail than a mother. I wish were could demonize it more.

      Lack of maturity, lack of social condemnation, and, probably, the father was also abandoned by his own father.
