THE DAUGHTER OF A MILLIONAIRE REFUSED TO MARRY A POOR MAN, AND THIS IS WHAT HE DID...
This Mom Was Fired for Not Marrying the Father of Her Unborn Child
A daycare worker in Virginia said she was fired for being a single, pregnant mom. Apryl Kellam said she had just received a top-notch review from her boss at Staples Mill Road Baptist Church last week, but then she brought up marriage. She was reportedly told if she and her fiancé, James Coalson, didn't set a date by Monday, she'd be fired.

Kellam and Coalson are expecting a baby in April, and they had already decided to get married when the time was right. Kellam has children from previous marriages. "I want to wait so we can have all our family and friends there and have a big wedding," Kellam told WTVR-TV. "I just don't want to go to the courthouse and have someone marry us."
Kellam says the employee handbook says daycare workers must be married, but she had never signed the document before starting in September, and her boss knew she was unmarried. Pastor James Booth said he couldn't talk about specifics, since he was bound by a confidentiality agreement. "We're not trying to be hurtful," he said, "we're just following our personnel handbook which is rooted in our statement of faith and our biblical beliefs."

Coalson and Kellam said they are worried about how to support their family without Kellam's paycheck. "It hurts because I've grown up in a Christian home and Christian church my whole life," Kellam said.
