Alright remember the marriage threads and we were talking about pros and cons and some people (IWYWB) asked me why am I even getting married if I'm going to have prenups and assets hidden within corporations controlled by trusts and etc so that in the event of divorce she only gets what I choose to give her since "oops, Falconer has no assets!" for the courts to take rather than dicking me over like women tend to do? Yeah you remember that thread. How does having kids fall into that equation? I always assumed that I would have kids, and even though I'm almost 29 and I'm nowhere near ready, I still wonder. Aren't parents supposed to be married? Assuming you choose to not get married, how does having kids fit into the picture? Are there any advantages or disadvantages of being married/unmarried when having kids? Obviously there is going to be a stigma if a child's parents aren't married... but aside from it "feeling weird" what else is there?
