<quoted text> Why is it so hard for adults to get married before they have sex? Men never take responsiblity for their actions. These children drown in their parents sins. A real man would work more than one job to take care of his family.
or why not use some type of birth control

or do women want to get 'with child' so they can get on welfare?

Sad. We should be proud.
Why do New Mexicans hate children. They are afraid these children
will grow up and have a better life than they do. If you all are
unhappy, make your own life better and leave others alone.
God burns you for your sins and then you are always whining.
Our children are his. Everything is his. Grow up.

what's truly sad about what you have posted is that if a man did work two jobs to support his family his wife would complain that he is never around to take care of her and then she starts cheating on him.

She complains he's never around and his response is "I'm working to take care of you!"

it doesnt have anything to do with race or music, kids do better in dual parent homes when the parents are active. the truth is that single parent homes just cant provide the supervision it takes to makes sure everything gets done. to have two parents, backing up each others decisions.... that helps in all aspects. from behavior to actually studying and doing their home work. single parents have alot on their plate, and some of them do it to themselves being whores, some of them were raped, some of them were in terribly abbusive relationships (and even though the father may owe child support, no matter how destitute, the one who escaped the abuse should not let the abuser know where the parent and children went off to), some of them were in relationships they thought were going to last forever and just didnt, some of them were the .01% that birthcontrol didnt work for...
thats when friends and family should step in, and just help to guid and encourage these children, who feel like they are completely unimportant.
I don't like what you call yourself.
