    Well ... I affectionately call it "a war zone." But yeah, these folks are all transplants from Chicago. Some of them lived in the same house in the city until they began to pair off. City proper is 200,000 people.

    Exodus 2216And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife.
    Notice that God doesn't prescribe "stoning with stones" here? I would say that God considers this couple the same way. So, I would say the first group is absolutely right. Encourage them in all the Christian love that you can muster, especially being mindful that the child could end up ""fatherless".
