Shot-gun weddings?


"You got her knocked up so you better marry my little girl!" or something like that was spoken from a father to the father to be decades ago. Now we live in a different society but I wonder was that a better design than what takes place today? Do you think families and society turned out better when one "did the right thing?" Was it better that way? What are your thoughts? Some would say that was not a good solution to the situation and others will say it turned out okay when life was a little simpler. Would you marry a woman because she's pregnant? Is that a better solution?

    Of course, a forced marriage is a HELLISH marriage. Such couples will eventually hate each other, even hate the child for forcing them to marry & be miserable.

    Forced marriages are egregious barbaric. It is better for the young woman who is pregnant to have an abortion whether than to have an unwanted child or be in a forced, hypocritical marriage.
