John and April, Alone.

As has been said on many occasions, John and Anthony are amazingly similar. Both men use children as a means of controlling their spouses, bot whine when they don't get their way, are basically unsympathetic to the plight of the women in their lives, have inflated self-images. As a further parallel, John would get custody of the child he wanted: April. It may look to the off-hand observer that John would continue his proud tradition of neglect for the few years before she reached the age of majority but I can see him emulating Anthony's half-assed overparenting. After all, he'd have no intention to let Elly have yet another victory by getting custody, despite her probable lack of interest. Transmuting from a benign, asleep-at-the-switch dunce into a micromanaging nincompoop is a lateral move into a different realm of jackassery.
