Becoming a fakeologist hasn’t changed my conservative view of fatherhood or marriage. Here’s an article I would have posted years before that I still agree with.
Let’s start with the obvious: Becoming a father changes a man’s outlook. It focuses his attention. It typically encourages him to work harder and think more about the future. It tends to make him less selfish. He’ll tend to spend less time staying out late, tomcatting around with his buddies, and more time trying to be a regular citizen and a good guy. Many studies have documented these changes.
