You & Me, Should Baby Make Three? Having Children Outside of Marriage

Girl and her Parents

Kourtney Kardashian is expecting her third child with boyfriend Scott Disick. According to People magazine’s June 23, 2014 edition, she “always wanted a big family with Scott”. That she apparently is content with a “big family” without marriage should be no surprise.

Having children outside of marriage is more common than it was decades ago for a variety of reasons. Why bother getting married in a society that no longer frowns upon illegimate births and pre-marital cohabitation?

In Louisiana, the law confers certain obligations as well as privileges on married people. Those obligations and privileges are the fabric that often holds parents together through difficult times. That cohesion provides a safety net for children who might otherwise be without the stability that a permanent relationship between their parents can provide.

Conceiving a child is serious business. Before you do, think about the legal and moral obligations that come with parenthood.

I would like to start by saying I am from TX and my ex wife tried to file a judgment in LA. I contacted a number of lawyers that explained to me that this maybe a process that they could look into.
