Which leaves us with the question – Was Ted’s Mom legally married to Rafael Cruz Sr. on December 22, 1970?
How long was Eleanor Darragh Wilson in Canada prior to Ted’s birth?
Was the reason for a quick trip to Calgary the means to get what looks like a legitimate birth certificate.
Anglos and Hispanics have entirely different points of view on legitimacy. Being born out of wedlock is more an English common law term that recognizes DNA connection but probably denies a claim on the father’s estates and titles etc.
That in many Hispanic cultures, if your supposed biological father puts his name on your birth certificate, you have a father (period.).
