Unlike women, men face paternal uncertainty when a woman they've inseminated gives birth.

We live in a world where approximately 1 of 10 newborns are not raised by their blood father (cuckoldry), and, thanks to modern technology, it's also a world where technology has produced reliable, cheap (~$99) DNA tests. Paternal uncertainty is a significant risk factor for infanticide, child abuse, and homicide (see Daly & Wilson's 'Homicide' for more details), so it is perhaps in the best interest of the parents and the child to seek out a DNA test that confirms or denies paternity in order to appease the father.
