I’m not a lawyer nor am I familiar with any laws regarding the matter of whether or not a husband is legally responsible for a child his wife conceives with another man. I can’t see how any law would force him to take responsibility for a child that is not his though. I think the people who are legally responsible for a child are the ones who created the child regardless of the circumstances surrounding the child’s conception. The issue here as far as I can see is one of moral responsibility rather than legal. If you’re married and your wife has a baby with another man, if you stay married to your wife and your wife is the one raising the child, can you choose to have nothing to do with the child because it’s not yours, especially while the child is living under your roof? I can only consider the child’s welfare in this scenario. If you can look beyond what your wife has done and stay married to her then you why should you have trouble accepting the child? It’s your wife who did something wrong and you’re loving her anyway. You’ve forgiven her and you’re moving on with her. The child does not deserve to be punished for what your wife did. If you can still love and accept your wife then you can love and accept the child. The child deserves nothing less.
