While I personally doubt that Bristol Palin will marry Levi Johnston and really don’t care as its none of my business, what I don’t get and maybe someone can explain this to me is why if you’re knocked up get married after your child is born out of wedlock instead of before? Isn’t that like saving a village in Viet Nam by destroying it? Sorry, it’s a 60’s thing.
As someone who’s rented an Apartment most of my adult life, I’ve made my share of mistakes when deciding to rent in different buildings and this blog is a list of things you should check on before renting your apartment that might not have occurred to you.
