Not About Politics - About Your Wife Kicking Your Ass


Umm, there is one thing I have learned in my six marriages. When you come to an agreement with your wife, it is best to honor that agreement or life will become very miserable for you very quickly. If you agree to take out the trash, and you don't, you get a tiny version of misery. If you go behind your wife's back and decide to go gambling with her birthday present money there is another level of misery. And some nights sleeping in the garage and sharing the dog's blanket, but we don't need to go there right now. But, I would say that when you have a once in a lifetime event like a child, and you and your partner or wife or whatever spend nine months coming up with a name, that you as a husband ought to put that name down on the birth certificate because if you don't and put down something else, I think the misery level is going to be something that will haunt you for the rest of your life and keep you lying awake at night.

Some guy in Tennesse apparently must sleep in full body armor, because he did just that. He and his wife had agreed on the name Ava Grace which is a lovely name. Not as lovely as others, but not as horrible as say, Apple. The husband, a McCain Palin supporter and I guess a guy with a huge ego decided to name the daughter Sarah McCain Palin. Yep. Didn't even bother to put his own last name on the end. His wife, needless to say was not pleased. The fact that he is still even alive or has his d**k still I put down to the fact that she is still in the hospital. Apparently he is also their spokesperson. "I don't think she believes me yet. It's going to take some more convincing."

Umm, if he thinks he can convince his wife, then he must make a whole lot of money. Hell, even if he bought her everything under the sun, and she let him keep the name, do you think that will be the end of it? Nope. Everytime someone has a baby she is going to tell the story and he is going to have to hear about it over and over and over again.

I think that'd be a big, fat NO, Jax.

So did the mother leave the name as is or changed it to Ava Grace?

TV said...

i dont buy that story as its the mother who signs the birth certificate, not the father.

Taylor said...

mama theresa,
I'm in California and I know 2 women whose husbands tracked down the registrar in the hallway and named the baby themselves with out the mom signing the certificate. :(

I myself would have that birth certificate ammended before my milk even came in.

I think this ranks right up there with cheating and deserves the same amount of misery. Does Lorena Bobbitt ring a bell?

Hi, all.

I live near where this family lives, and the story going around here is that the father did this while the mother was still unconscious immediately following the birth.

My cousin's husband tried something like this a few years ago, but the woman in charge of filing the birth certificate waited until my cousin was fully off the drugs and asked her if she really wanted to name her son the name her husband had chosen. Thank God that woman did that.

BTW, when the local news stations interviewed the father yesterday, all the interviews I saw were done outside the family's home. I figured it's because the wife warned him not to come anywhere near her for awhile.

I think the clerk who let him do such a shmucky thing without the wife being present should be questioned.

jax said...

i'd divorce the f*cker.
actually i'd never marry a dumbass like that in the first palce.

Miss X said...

If the mom is supposed to be consulted or sign the birth cert, it would seem the hospital has a potential lawsuit on its hands.

This guy is an idiot.

I went out with a guy who told me on the first date he wanted to name his first son after Michael Jordan. He already named his dog after Michael Jordan. It was such an odd thing to bring up on a first date. Needless to say, he didn't last long. I don't want to be with someone who's dictating "our" children's names on the first date.

I call bullshit. I live in Tennessee and had a baby last year. The (surviving) mother is *required* by law to sign the birth certificate, so the damn thing is illegal anyway. And by state law, a newborn child HAS to have the birth father's last name (or birth mother's last name if father is not present). One cannot simply be picked at random. I had issue with this, and got chased down by the registrar.

Jesse D said...

Oh, and wtf? He's going to name his kid after a loser?? Hello!

Chole said...

A loser? The point of this post was the baby being named something other than the name agreed upon. One of the things I love about this blog it that is has not gotten political...let's keep it that way.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Gee, he's going to know just how I felt after I named my kid Kerry Edwards.

Kidding, kidding.

jax said...

sorry chloe we speak our minds here whether it be celebs, politics or prostitution.

and IMO Palin is a fucking loser.

Murphy Brown 2020 said...

I'm with you, Jax: this is grounds for divorce. And the kid should sue the FUCK out of her dad when she turns eighteen.

i accidentally mis-spelled my daughter's name on the birth cert. (we had picked an odd spelling, and i still did it wrong), and was horrified the next day when i realized my mistake.
it was no problem, the registrar said it happened all the time, we just re-did the form and all was well.
and, oddly enough, DD is one of the few kids i've never heard complain about her name (myself included)!

lutefisk said...

bionic birthday bunny!--when my mother went to register me for kindergarten they started to yell at her that she kept me home too long--turns out my birth certificate had the wrong YEAR, & no one noticed--probably because I'm the middle child. Anyway, the new one had the year crossed off, & a new year written in.

There better be one HELL of a push gift! And a swift name change for the child-pronto.

i am a princess, yes i am said...

the father can be the only signer in certain states. also he could have had her sign it while it was blank and then filled in the rest (acting like he was helping her).

btw a little off topic but in Missouri the father has to be present in order to be put on the birth certificate because many single women were putting Bill Clinton's name down as the father

mooshki said...

LOL, that's hysterical Princess!!!

Charlene said...

Or he could have forged her signature, which would again be illegal and possibly felony fraud.
