Here’s another deadbeat dad story — but with an unusual twist.
(Yes, I know plenty of deadbeat mothers exist. Here’s a tragic example. But “Gold Diggers and Deadbeat Non-Custodial Parents” isn’t catchy.)
If you read my book Gold Diggers and Deadbeat Dads: True Stories of Friends, Family, and Financial Ruin, you might remember Diana’s story, “Where Did All the Child Support Money Go?”
Diana’s troubles began when she married her high school sweetheart Bart, who turned out to be anything but sweet, she told me.
Instead, he was a raging alcoholic who slept around their small town in a Minneapolis suburb.
