Wise to have children with live-in partner?

Me and my partner are thinking of having a child. We are in a live-in. Is it a wise decision?


If seen legally, since you guys are not married, the child would be labelled as illegitimate. Plus, keeping a future possibility in mind, if the guy walks away from the relationship, then you end up being an unmarried, single mother which is a huge responsibility in itself. Indian society already frowns upon live-ins, having a child out of wedlock is still a huge issue, single mothers do not enjoy many privileges legally. Before taking any such decision, go through pros and cons of the issue.


It's a 'huge' decision,... wise or not... you guys must make sure if you are really up for that kind of responsibility.
