Germany’s justice ministry has drawn up a change in the law which would require mothers in certain paternity cases to reveal who they had slept with.
The precise wording of the new paragraph states that the mother would be obliged to provide information to the man on “who has lain with her during the conception period”. BBC
Why can’t they be more explicit?
I have slept with women with whom I have not had sex.
I have had sex with women where I have not fallen asleep. (honest!)
Surely the law should – without the assistance of lawyers – be as explicit and precise as possible?
(and how the hell is the man going to know when the conception period is?)
