It is not for us to judge. He who is sinless may they cast the first stone. I think that's how it's written in the bible.

Nope. It would not bother me. It's not my place to judge them.

I guess I'll elaborate a bit. It would not bother me at all. I have no problem being friends who live together. Personal decisions of others do not affect me one way or the other, and it's just not my business. What I would not allow is my child spending the night in the home of a couple who are living together because I think it would set a bad example for my children, and that part of it would be my business.

It wouldn't bother me. People's personal relationships are their business and their decisions are between them and God

I voted, no and echo the sentiment, it's not my place to judge that.

This has nothing to do with my trying to limit his view based on my morals. Mostly, it's because my son is six years-old. I'd be OK with him visiting, but not an overnight. It was my mom's rule when I was growing up, so that's probably the biggest influence. I had a couple of aunts who weren't married but were living with their boyfriends. I remember not being allowed to spend the night and knowing the reason why. It's just the way I feel about it right now, and I'm sure it will change down the line (like many things).

And I apologize if I implied you, personally did.

Oh, no! No offense at all. Thanks for asking, actually. It made me stop and think "why in the world is this the 'rule??'." I actually should talk to Brian about this to make sure we're on the same page or see what his thinking is. He leaves most of this stuff in my court, but I think we need to compare notes on this one. It's a great question, really. In my head, it just makes sense even though I don't know that I can fully articulate my reasons. I do know that I would never want to limit Ian. It's just interesting to think on. Ian knows that the order of operations is: grow up, finish school, get married, have a baby. He's already noticed that you don't *have* to be married to have a baby, so that was an interesting conversation when he asked me about it about six months ago. Kids always keep you on your toes!
