FirstNationalBastard: People having children had out of wedlock was pushed way down the list thanks to interracial marriages, and then gay marriages.
Honest Bender: Honestly, I think the institution of marriage is just losing ground. It would be better if any 2 humans could sign paperwork to just be considered legally a couple.
ha-ha-guy: /who am I kidding, no one gets outraged over white guy, Asian woman
HMS_Blinkin: When Bristol Palin does it, it is a miraculous gift from God.
Swiss Colony: If a child is born out of wedlock and his parents later marry does he remain a bastard?
Mr. Right: One of the primary functions of marriage, historically, was to legally obligate the father to provide for the children, to provide an automatic means of passing family wealth through the generations, and to provide some financial and societal security/position for the acquiescent broodmare (AKA wife). The focus was not the couple but the family unit. That attitude has shifted, obviously, to where it is now all about the couple.
mortimer_ford: Swiss Colony: If a child is born out of wedlock and his parents later marry does he remain a bastard?No, but if a child's parents get divorced he becomes a bastard. But only if he's mentally retarded.

ronaprhys: You have to properly calculate the abominations to get to the proper order:1 - co-habitating and not married? One sin, but if they got married the sin goes away.2 - having children out of wedlock? Still the same sin as above, nothing really different. You do get a bit of extra flavor as it's setting a bad example for the kids, but the parents can get married and then the sin goes away.1 - Ghei? Total abomination and a sin. Also, disgusting (assuming it's not hot women. If it's hot women then it's hot and to be encouraged, as long as they're bi and into the group thing)2 - Adopting kids? Since it encourages an abomination as normal, bad juju. Especially since they can't get married and make the sin go away.See? Ghei = totally worse.
KrispyKritter: less people give a damn than you think. they just don't care. don't care who you are, what your politics are and what your personal sex choice is. big deal. get over yourself.

HailRobonia: ha-ha-guy: /who am I kidding, no one gets outraged over white guy, Asian womanFrom my experience in Taiwan, there are two types who biatch about WGAW: Asian guys, and white women.
RabidRythmDivas: Biblically speaking, I believe cohabitating couples ARE married. "Become one flesh"? That's Bible for "hooking up".But when you do it with multiple partners, it becomes adultery very cool if it's 1 guy with multiple women.Actually, Jesus was pretty clear about all this. And nowhere did he say "You can't have sex before your wedding ceremony!"
jaytkay: Don't worry, we're talking about people who are enraged by the Girl Scouts, "Happy Holidays and the White House vegetable garden.Conservatives have an endless supply of hatred to supply every manufactured "scandal".
simusid: I've been cohabing w/ my "wire" for almost 30 years. MA does not recognize cohabitation, and around 1987 it was actually still illegal (max year in jail, $300 fine). We have 3 kids, house, assets, cars, stocks, health care coverage, all the usual middle class stuff and I'll be honest with you..... NOBODY cares about our marital status. Probably cuz we're a boring white couple.I'mOkWithThat.jpg
Harry Freakstorm: The bastards
Saza: Personally I think this whole monogamy thing has been a foolish little adventure that the human species is not well evolved for. Sure we thought it was good back when we started inventing argiculture, but clearly the monogamy experiment is failing.
ajax6677: Unmarried , cohabitating mom. Doing my part to piss off the religious right.
