Why are people in this comment section complaining? Is it wrong to have a child at 21? Also, what is the deal with the irrelevent, nonsensical comment "Doesn't ANYONE bother getting married anymore especially when there's a kid involved?" People are adults at 21, and many have already graduated college. Again, I ask the commentariat (not the correct word, but you get the point)...what is the problem?
