Re: Kylie Jenner is having a baby

Once again I ask, is it better for the kid to have Mommy and Daddy living together, even if they can't stand each other, simply because they are parents?

Re: Kylie Jenner is having a baby

Well Congrats. I watched the first two seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians back when Kylie and Kendall were little girls and Caitlin was Bruce.

Re: Kylie Jenner is having a baby

It's pretty obvious that they use these men to have their babies and make headlines.  And that's all that  matters to them is making money.

I forgot to say I wish the couple well and to have a healthy baby.


@KatCat1   After reading all these posts, I guess I am what others here would call old fashioned.  I do believe in marriage first, then children, if that is what you desire.  I don't feel that I should be ashamed to feel this way, no matter what year the calendar says.  I grew up that way and therefore so did my children.  For moral and religious reasons, that is how I feel.  Sorry, not sorry.


My parents have been married for close to 50 years.  I believe in marraige and then children.  But I don't judge anyone who makes another choice.  I have friends who wanted to get married and start a family but the right person has yet to come along.  So they decided to have a child first.  When you're closer to 40 than 30 you start to worry that if you wait too long you're ability to have a baby is slipping away.

Marriage isn't everything. And just because two people create a baby, doesn't mean that they are suited to be husband and wife.

 

As long as the child is happy, loved, and healthy and well cared for, THAT is all that is important. Not whether mommy and daddy are married or not.


Well now to be sure 'marriage isn't everything' and bad marriages can be damaging, and it's true that out of wedlock births don't carry quite the same level of stigma they once did and that the whole sperm donor model of parenthood is somewhat normative these days. On the other hand, creating a stable home life and an intact nuclear family might help to mitigate some of the current explosion of mental health issues, adjustment disorders, acting out behaviors and so on. Just a thought.

@stevieb, or it could exacerbate them. It all depends on just how "nuclear'' the family is. :-)

@suzyQ3  So true and that's why it was noted early on that bad marriages can be damaging. Single parenthood is preferable to raising a child in the midst of a destructive relationship. That said, this entire family could be the collective poster child for unstable and failed relationships.

Re: Kylie Jenner is having a baby

Congrats to the parents. This is a very lucky child who will have opportunities the rest of us can only dream about.

Kylie and Travis make adorable children. Stormi is a cutie!
