If you are a Dear Reader here, you know that I'm quite "live-and-let-live".... Let me live my life, and I let you live your life. But something is becoming so "accepted" in the world today.... Something which gets even "MY panties in a twist".
Men and women, blithely having children, without being married.
Married, to me, means some form of real commitment. Some sort of formal bond, before bringing children into the world.
When I read; "My girlfriend and I, had a baby..." ~~~~ Sorry but that does not sound to me, like a formal bond has been made. -grumble-grumble-grumble-
