If I have a kid and/or get married, I take a serious risk of getting hosed for large sums of money, by the decisions of a woman (or women) whose behaviour I cannot (legally) control. Child support, divorce settlements, and alimony in many western countries are financially punitive and don't favour relatively well-off married men or fathers. If I respond by not marrying or reproducing, my DNA will die out. The human race will be denied the benefit of the contribution made by my offspring. Isn't the rational response then to become a sperm donor? Either officially, via donations to sperm banks throughout the world. Or unofficially, by seducing and impregnating various women out of wedlock, in countries without strong child support enforcement & laws. This way, the world benefits from having more people, of good genetic stock (assuming I pick healthy, attractive, and average or better IQ women with decent moral values), I get to satisfy my genetic imperative to reproduce, and I don't have to pay out the ass to finance some gold-digger's shopping sprees. Also, I don't have to deal with bringing up dozens of whining kids. What's not to like? Westerners don't reproduce enough. This seems like the perfect way to solve that problem. It does an end run around the absurd divorce and child support laws that make reproduction and familiy-building a negative-sum game for anyone of means.
