HELP: "My one-night stand says he is not the father of my child"


Anonymous from Tembisa:

A friend invited me to his party and I met his other friend there. We then hooked up and made love on the same night. This guy broke my virginity and impregnated me. But

he now tells me that the baby is not his. I told him we must do a paternity test but he refuses. He says he has moved on with his life and I should also do the same. What must I do?

Sis Naledi responds:

It must be difficult for the guy to actually believe he is the father of your baby if you slept

with him like that. First, you had not known each other, trust was never established and you both don’t know how many other people you might have slept with like that. Remember, you are the one who knows the facts of the day you met him, he may not know. If you believe he is the father of your baby, then sue him for maintenance. The court will

force him to do a paternity test.
