Aubrey Huff played for 13 season in Major League Baseball. So if you’re looking for the real inside-baseball info, he’s your guy.
If you’re a single guy with no kids who’s interested in dating or marrying a single mom, though, maybe look elsewhere for advice.
I’ve never understood as a man why you would date, or marry a single mother if you’re single with no kids of your own.
Seems to me he doesn’t feel he has options or doesn’t value himself as a man.
I’d feel like I was a backup plan helping raise another man’s kids. 🤷🏼♂️

Speak for yourself, dude.
And there it is…. today’s most unfortunate tweet.

Uh, yeah. Because yeesh.
I’m usually with you, but that’s a really bad take.

And families that adopt? Do those husbands and fathers not value themselves as men either? https://t.co/eVcgoQ2uUq

Ooh, so wrong… my husband, A SAINT, married me with three (3!) kids, and then we had one more. He loved them all equally and he gave my boys and girls a towering example of honor and respect and generosity of heart and spirit that lives on after he did. He was God's plan.

Not cool in any way, Aubrey. I dated someone for 8 yrs who wasn't my kids' dad, and while that didn't work out he is still a father figure to my kids and a valued part of their lives.
It takes a secure and strong man to step into that role. What's weak is feeling like a backup. https://t.co/HeOOcvsPqW

My mom fell in love with my dad because my then-4 year-old half sister fell in love with him first.
I’m only here because my dad viewed her as a blessing and treated her like his own.
Screw anyone who thinks that’s a bad thing. https://t.co/3a2ERGQ8Q5

My father has raised 6 kids, with only 2 being biologically related to him. He wanted them to have stability, and we could always count on him to be there. That's a strong man, not a loser.

I was single with no kids, & married a single mom with 3 sons. It can be tough, ain't no doubt about it, but it can sure be worth it, too. I'd do it again. And we have a beautiful daughter together. Love wins out in the end, man.

the men who choose to love babies who don’t “belong” to them are twice the man you’ll ever be.

A child has the ability to make you feel like a backup plan, and like less of a valuable man?
You reek of insecurity, good lord. Man up, ffs. https://t.co/SVrbc0upex

Here’s what we know for sure:
Thank God for all the men in this world who have stepped up to raise another guy's kids like they are his own for the sake of love. https://t.co/REUx98qBos
