I have read a study that claimed that nearly 50% of the parents involved in pregnancies is a man.
Yes, but as a matter of practicality, men are less hampered by them. Biology isn't particularly fair on this point. Gm's got a point about that being an overuse of whopping for this context, but in practice, it's obvious that the guy isn't going to experience additional care for pregnancy.
So, you're going to see costs distributed unequally. At least, that's the case thus far. Not impossible to change, but let's not pretend that just because a man is involved with a pregnancy, that he always bears an equal share of the costs.
