Another one now? And when the NRE ends is their relationship strong enough to withstand parenting at all, let alone parenting such an unconventional blended family? Yeah, they weren't thinking. Someone should stop them. But I can't, no one can.
I'm glad you don't feel like I'm attacking you, because I'm not. I really feel helpless on your behalf. Granted, you did make choices that got you where you are, but you all need to deal with the situation MOVING FORWARD, as you seem to understand, and recklessly making babies like there's no tomorrow in sight is just... it makes me ache for the current and potential children and the fact that there is nothing in your or my power we can do about it..
