I believe that would ruin Batman as a character and in generall, and degrade it into the likes of Bold and the Beautiful soapie! Batman is built on his upbringing from his parents and his love for them, take that away, and you take away the Batman!

1:1 - Childhood

A young chubby boy, Alfred Pennyworth was born and grew up in a small town about 13.295 miles north south south east of Liverpool, England. He suffered many difficulties growing up, including being overweight, he had a drunk of a father who would often beat on his mother, who occasionally enjoyed cross-dressing as a male and intimidating military troops. Hating his father, young Alfred often turned to his mother for guidance and leadership, which is why at such a young age he was influenced to join the army. Having seen so many young troops in and out of their small 1/2 bedroom house, it was programmed in Alfred's mind that the military makes his mother happy.
