  • Considering it's the 21st century and people shouldn't have to be married to have a family, no.

    Answer by Nanixh at 5:27 PM on Feb. 3, 2011

  • Yes, I do.

    Answer by NannyB. at 5:28 PM on Feb. 3, 2011

  • No, I think it's what happens after that, that sends the message. Are both parents involved? Are they civil? Do they work together to raise their child? Being married or getting married or staying married simply because their are children involved certainly isn't the message I want to send.

     And people worry about the sanctity of marriage........
