47% of children being born in UK were out of wedlock. [Link].
I think this indicates that their society has learnt to respect all citizens irrespective of the parents’ marital status. I hope we see India do the same.
Then news like this would not be so common,
Abandoned newborn girl dies in Gurgaon (six days ago)
But it seems some people don’t see it this way. It is assumed that the parents not being married to each other automatically indicates that the child would not know who the father is, and that is seen as the worse thing that could happen to a child. Perhaps, worse than being abandoned near a garbage heap.
Wonder how common is this mindset.
“Country of Bastards….soon father will marry his daughter and brother will marry his sister as child born out of marriage lock have high probability of marrying mistakenly to their own siblings….”
“wow then future generations can marry their siblings without knowing it. going back to beginning of mankind”
