How come women never pay child support?

Believe me they do if they do not have custody. When the kid goes to college they have to pay their fair share too.

Women who earn more than their exes and share custody certainly DO pay child support. I know a couple who pay alimony too.

Another lie. If a woman makes more money and a man has won full custody, she will pay support.

Women DO pay child support. Often times, the man will get custody of the children, and the wife will be ordered to pay child support.
When my son was 15, he decided to go live with his father, so this was done through the Courts. I paid child support, and i didn't mind. As a parent, i do have a financial responsibility to my child until he's 18 or out of high school, which ever comes first.
And beyond that, if he needs financial help, i will help him when i can.

Not true. If the mother of a child loses custody through her own fault, she is required to pay child support to the father or other custodial adult. However, in most cases a single mother raises the child and pays all expenses such as housing, food, clothing, education and medical expenses. The law only asks that the father give his fair share.

On rare occasion they do, but overall it’s men who are expected to be providers.
