What - if my daughter is pregnant I'm supposed to support her and the child?
I WILL - but that's because, when I was in that same position, my parent's DIDN'T. If a kid is so stupid that they are in that type of situation then they are not capable of being on their own. The kid (child) will only suffer.
It's not a requirement, though . . . what we really should do is encourage wise decision making, improved values of self worth, reducing risky behaviors, and other such things that create the situation to begin with.
Instead, when you suggest to people that we should start to push against promiscuous sex, etc, they get defensive. They'll argue that "sex is natural and we shouldn't discourage it, because that won't work anyway, they'll do what they want."
Well, it might not have worked for me, but it worked for my sisters.
But I'd rather such mothers be on government assistance than in a **** marriage. That's what happened to me and it was hell to escape from.
