So, I was talking to an old friend of mine, and he told me that since I last spoke to him, his girlfriend has had two more kids. That makes four or five (or is it six?)…I can’t keep count. Anyway, when I asked him if they were going to get married, he told me that his child support payment might be the size of someone’s mortgage but that peace of mind is more important than money.
What? How can you have peace of mind with five mouths to feed, including yours. You can have a lot of things, but peace is most definitely not one of them.
Then, that got me to thinking…why have kids with someone that you don’t plan to spend your life with? I mean, I can see having one child with someone, because things happen. I can even see trying to be in a relationship with someone and having one or two more kids, but then deciding that it won’t work out. But, I just can’t see having four or more kids with someone that you don’t plan on being committed to forever. I mean, at what point do you stop?
What are you waiting for? Something better to come along?
Let me be the first to say that unless a woman has Oprah money, you’re not going to find someone to marry you now. She’d be stupid to, because the minute you two get married, all the baby mama’s can come and collect child support from her. And I don’t know about you, but I’m not having my paycheck garnished to support anyone else’s kids…let alone five of them.
So, I say, go ahead and put a ring on it. You’ve already stretched her out. You’ve already used her up. You’ve already let five little beings do irreversible damage to her body. I mean, that’s the least you can do, right?
