I am looking for some thoughts on the subject of setting ground rules, and opinions on how others would have handled my situation.

Shortly after my DD turned 13, she attended a family gathering, bringing her "partner", a 14-year old boy she introduced as her "boyfriend".

In Illinois, there is no common-law marriage, the Ill Supreme Court has rejected palimony, and the baby-daddy simply signing the birth certificate is NOT enough enough to confirm paternity.

Wisconsin doesn't have common law marriage either. Not that it would make a whole lot of difference - I think the kids are having a wedding to make the families happy.
