| | Re: Would you take on children that aren't biologically yours?
I think step children are going to be more and more these days. In the UK there are over a million single parent families, mainly mothers.
It wasn’t so in my day, it didn’t really come into the equation. I think society’s gone to pot in some ways. There was a debate on TV recently as to whether girls as young as thirteen should be allowed to get birth control from the pharmacist without either their parents or doctors knowledge and approval.
Thirteen years old. Having sex. And all with the approval of the State.
For me (in my day!) there was a lot of shame associated with under sixteen pregnancies and even birth outside of wedlock. All that seems to have gone by in the wind and we literally have an explosion of unmarried mothers living off the State.
