The trouble with not being married... son when he lost his "wife" who was really his life partner and my oldest granddaughter in a car accident, had to go to court to get custody of his surviving granddaughter. Yes, they all lived in the same home and no it was not because family members were against it. Just part of the law. Very sad really... I just had a family friend commit suicide a week ago today. Leaving behind his partner of 7 years and their two children and two of hers. It is ugly as his parents think they are more family than the family since they were not married.

And my granddaughter's both had my son's last name. There was no disputing they weren't his kids but on top of the tragedy he had to gain custody....

I do hope he is looking after his financial obligations with his daughter. If he's not, I'd head for the hills and not even think about a baby with him. I'm not talking some token $50mo, he should be paying $300 at least.

Well, honey you aren't from here and yes some of those $11 an hour jobs come with full family medical. My son's family medical is $20 a month and I wish I had near the coverage he does. Here is one example of what you can buy for a mid-priced house in SD
402 Iowa Street, Alcester SD - Trulia

When I lived in KY, I bought a stand alone 3-br house unassisted, had my own car and lots of left over spending money. I had full health insurance. I was making $11.75 an hour. Family insurance was a small adder though I don't remember how much, like $50 a month or so maybe.

Not that I'm saying its a good idea. I think more money is always a good idea.

Great point DA I also think more is better but it can be done in our little state.

This kind of problem is one of the reasons that gay/lesbian couples want full marriage, but that's another topic.
