I usually don’t complain about things, but right now I am so disgusted! My nephew, who is 30 years old and should know better, has gotten another girlfriend pregnant and is living with her and has no plans to marry in the near future. He has a 2-year old daughter by a previous girlfriend whom he has custody of 4 days a week (he does take good care of her and pays child support, etc.) and now he has gone and done this again (of course I know it takes two to tango). What is worse, is that he has persuaded this girl to quit her job and take care of his daughter and the new baby, when it comes, and she did it!!
I cannot believe the stupidity of this all, from even a purely secular view point. Why would a woman with a good job in these tough economic times quit it to take care of another woman’s child with no promise to marry from the guy? I can see right now that we are going to have another unwed mother with no job in the near future, because he is not a trustworthy person. And his little girl is going to be soooo confused, with two “mommies” in her life. And why would he even ask her to do such a thing? Plus, his job is not very high-paying, although he has health insurance and his children will be covered, that is, if he doesn’t lose it, like so many have recently.
My family is very upset about all this, and my poor 83 year old mother is having conniptions. What is wrong with some people? This is insane! No morals, no values, no common sense, just live for today without any thought of consequences. And I know this behavior is very common these days in society. I shudder for the children and their future in this society.
I guess I just needed to vent. And I ask for prayers for this situation and these children. And prayers for my nephew and the girl. Sometimes I get so disheartened when I see what is going on in our society, wondering where it is headed.
