If they are not married, they shouldn't qualify and since the guy also had another child to someone else, I wonder who is paying for that one? My first guess would be the welfare system, and you know where they get the money from, taxpayers.

Qualify for what, a couple of small token gifts for having the first child of the year? No, they're not married but these aren't the 1950's anymore.

I just wanted to pass along a congratulations to this couple. If you want to have a moral and religious debate do it elsewhere.

It would be nice if it was the 1950's, The community would be outraged because of this kind of behavior. If you're going to have children be ready to pay for them. Don't have them and then leave them and expect others to pay. Just because everybody is doing it doesn't make it right whether it is 2012 0r 1912.

I don't disagree with that at all (expecting other people to pay to raise your children). Bringing a child into the world without being able to provide for them is definitely something to be outraged about, but do you have some sort of knowledge that this is the case here with this young couple? If not, why crap all over a thread congratulating them on having the first child of the new year?

I personally don't have any problems with people having children without being married. Being "married" isn't what makes a good parent.

But not being married is what makes a lot of bad ones.
