I got common law married to the man i planned on spending the rest of my life with after we got pregnant. He left me for another girl but still wants to be involved with our unborn child and wants to take the last name. I feel he's undeserving, but I'm concerned my son will some day want to have his dad's name, since he will be involved. I'm not sure how to proceed. And i'm not exactly sure what legal rights he has as a father with our common law marriage if i decide to give our son my last name.
