Apparently. Many people do it. I don't get why it would be so hard though. I'm not English and it's a piece of cake for me. You'd think native English speakers should know how to use them. I would like to make a distinction though, people can just have made a mistake of course, while writing quickly for instance. It happens to the best of us. And let's not forget that autocorrect has put lots of people in awkward positions (worse than a word only being spelled incorrectly) hence the website DYAC. ;)
Get your boyfriend to record everything when you're in labor then show your boyfriends dad. So he won't miss anything. ;)
Tell him you're disappointed that his gigolo son still hasn't popped the question even after knocking you up. I'll bet the old bastard will stop taking his petty annoyances to you anymore.
I wasn't thinking about the cost of the wedding. In my cynical view of marriage, one of the only redeeming features of the institution is to provide financial stability for children. Marriage keeps people who hate each other together which has the odd side-effect of creating stable economic units for the kids.
Who says they aren't married? Just because they've signed a contract doesn't make them legally obligated to call each other "husband" and "wife". I have a girlfriend, and we're soon to be married. Afterwards, I'll still have a girlfriend. And nobody will know the difference, because nobody will know. Like you said; it's just a legal thing. Some people really treat it like that.
13- OP doesn't deserve any level of bullshit from another person about when she decides to have a child simply because it doesn't conform to their timeline or your religious/ marital preferences. A piece of paper and a ceremony doesn't instantly create a pure and perfect family, and the average national divorce rate of close to 50% proves it. :p With all due respect, pull your ignorant head from your arrogant ass and please, please, try to realize there is more ways to live your life than the one and only choice you've selected for yourself. :p
13 - My parents had me when they got married. They were married a whole 4 whopping years. Whereas, my friend's parents NEVER got married, but they had 3 kids together. They've been together for 23 years. I say marriage is a waste of time and money. So, shut the hell up. Thanks. Have a nice day. (:
