Hi, hope someone can help me with my question. I am living with my partner for almost 8 years now. And now she is pregnant with twin babies. My questions are:

1. Are the babies going to be legitimate or iligitimate?
2. Will they have full name as with normal babies with FIRST NAME, MI(mother's surnmae), LAST NAME(my surname)
3. What will be the difference of being legitimate and iligitimate in our society? (if there are any)

Sorry for too many questions

Thanks in advance.

1) illegitimate if you are not married
2) yes, if you sign the birth cert

there is still a social stigma but not as terrible as before. if you later get married, the will be legitimated. if you later split up and marry someone else and have kids, the illegit kids will inherit only 1/2 as to the legit kids.

francesca, if your father signed your birth certificate, that is perfectly fine. if not, it still is fine. you have to use the name stated on your birth cert.
