    What are your thoughts on this?

    It's an interracial relationship, the two people are from two completely different racial and cultural background. The woman has a two year old child from another man, she claims she is divorced (I don't know for sure if the child in question is legitimate or whether he was born out of wedlock). Seems like a very serious (probably physical) relationship.

    I find the whole thing to be extremely disturbing and cringeworthy.

    Divorced with a kid at 19 is impressive...

    She's only really going to be able to get older guys now she's got herself in to that mess (how many 19 year olds do you know who want to be the step dad to a divorcee's kid) so I don't see an issue with the age

    Because it was (and still kind of is) happening RIGHT UNDER MY NOSE (almost literally). I was very disturbed when I finally put 2 and 2 together. I've spoken to the woman a couple of times and I managed to connect the dots. I was disturbed at what I found.

    Don't you think it's weird for a 25 year old guy to start a relationship with a person like that? I find it weird that he picked a woman that has a child and has been with another man.

    I've never been able to rate men, but I'm sure he's probably better than a 3. No homo. But, looks aren't really why I'm disturbed by this relationship.

    I just wanted to gauge whether other people find it weird like I do. I've stooped quite low in the past, but never as far as embarking on a relationship with such an inappropriate person.

    she has a child from another man
    she's a different race to the guy
    completely different cultural backgrounds
    and they shouldn't really be in a relationship

    What's it got to do with you? Are you involved with either of the couple?

    it just feels really awkward and wrong, it's a cringe fest. I wish I never knew or found out about it in the first place. i hate knowing. it does have to do with me, i think i'm somewhat involved maybe, i dunno

    What's wrong in your eyes doesn't have to be wrong for others.

    If you explain more on how you're involved then perhaps people can see what's the issue. Other than that you just sound douchy.

    It is wrong. I'm not directly involved, but I feel awkward watching from the sidelines and not saying anything or voicing my concerns. How is this thing going to turn out a few years down the line? I'm thinking there's a possibility it may even lead to marriage, which is what really disturbs me. I do not want to be step uncle to an illegitimate interracial child.

    1. What's wrong with an illegitimate interracial child? Also you said she was divorced so the child isn't illegitimate. And since this thread is all about voicing out then I must say your archaic view of illegitimacy (you won't mention it as an issue if you didn't see it as negative) is abhorrent. This is coming from a ******* child (and damn proud of it) who have dealt with bigots like yourself.

    2. You really have no say whatsoever if they marry. You're not part of the couple so tough luck buddy. Haha.

    Omg THIS. I see so many people on here stressing over irrelevant and petty things. How is this relationship going to bother the OP. Just another idiot trying to cause trouble.
