Burley, you rascal.
Perhaps I am a prude.
Perhaps I grew up with a bunch of Puritanical folk.
(I did live in Wheaton, Illinois: All American City, home of Wheaton College)
But living with a woman and having a child out of wedlock was, um, frowned upon and quite unusual in my younger days.
Dan Quale publically frowned upon it in the 80's.
I am not trying to judge.
I just want to know why the folks in Hannah's world did not find it scandalous.
Did this aspect of Burley's life suprise you? shock you? puzzle you? bore you?
Inquiring minds want to know.
