It's easy to judge when you don't know the whole story. Why is Peterson any different than Joe Couchpotato who has several kids by women who aren't married to him? And why is it such a bad thing that he has fathered a couple of kids? If he's supporting them financially, he's living up to his responsibilities. Doesn't this woman deserve any blame for deciding to date the man who allegedly killed the child?
Of course there are but if they are unaware of the existence of these children, why should we have a problem with it?
Just gonna throw this out there: I'm a young guy so I'm not gonna pretend to be an expert on this subject. I find it interesting and I might just learn some perspective. That said, here's what I'm thinking:
- Doesn't a father have more responsibility to their child than just financial support?
- You are right that we do not know all of the facts, but for the sake of continuing this discussion since we will *never* have all of the facts about anything we discuss here on RedsZone, lets just assume this child was the result of unprotected sex. Is having unprotected sex with one night stands across the country responsible behavior that elicits no criticism?
