I don't think it should be compulsory, but if 1 parent wants it, then I think it should be offered, free of charge, along with all those other tests they perform shortly after birth.
That way men that don't doubt paternity don't insult their partners, and those that do, can get the answers they need. DH would never ask for a paternity test, he knows the kids are his, they are just like him in looks and personality. If he did ask for a test, I'd be really angry, but I would have a 'bring it on' kind of philosophy . I have nothing to hide, and he would just end up looking stupid when the results come back anyway.
