    As soon as a man is pregnant, he gets to sit home and cry like he's dying from a cold. :) (It's paternity leave by the way. Maternity is for the mother. Pa, Ma)


    If dad works for a company with more than 50 workers, U.S. law mandates he can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave per year to celebrate the birth or adoption of his child. But dad will need to notify his employer 30 days before he begins his leave. And fear not, federal law protects dad from losing his rank in the company while on paternity leave!

    Most fathers can use their vacation time or sick days as part of their family leave. He'll still be getting a paycheck to support his (growing) family!
