Why do people have kids with their boyfriends/girlfriends? [View all]


(OK, bear with me....)

Itís not that I think thereís anything morally wrong with it, itís just that IMO, being a single parent is very hard.

Not only is it hard for practical reasons, but also economically. Itís often hard to get child support out of a non-custodial parent.
