We are smart enough to realize that an act of consensual sex MIGHT create a child. Therefore we make DAMN sure that we get to know a man first, marry him and THEN had sex. If we got impatient and slip up then we rearrange our lives to accommodate the coming child and our changing responsibilities. If we realize that we would be incompatible in a marriage, then we place our child for adoption so that he can have the benefits of having TWO involved parents.
So do you honestly think we’re so stupid that we can’t set personal boundaries, demonstrate self-control or give serious consideration to the long term effects our choices we make today will have?
