I don’t blog much about actual trial or practice experiences. Too much risk of divulging attonrey-client privilege. But every so often the crap I have to deal with compels me to rant a little. This is one of those rants.
How hard is it really to live responsibly? It’s not nuclear science, right? Marry the woman you will have children with. Don’t make the babies first. Also, if you are going to make babies sans marriage, do so with one woman or man, not multiple ones. Perhaps most important, if you do screw around and have kids, don’t be surprised when the mother or father sues for custody or child support.
And another thing. Don’t drive a car unless you have insurance and a valid license. Don’t ever drive after drinking alcohol. Don’t take stuff that isn’t yours. Don’t beat your spouse or children. Etc.
I could go on, and on, and on. People today have no common sense. Church is good for that, but who wants to feel bad about what they are doing when that thing is clearly immoral and wrong?
Here’s the good news. If you don’t refrain from the above and get into trouble, I can probably get you out of it. I’ve got a pretty good record at doing just that. I’d just prefer that the next legal matter I help you with is something fun like an adoption, will, or business incorporation.
Rant is over. Have a good day.
