Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s Daughter Shouldn’t Have to Hide Their Relationship

ashton kutcherWhile Demi Moore has been licking her wounds after kicking Ashton Kutcher to the curb, the split really doesn't seem to have bothered him in the slightest.

He's been going about his life like nothing happened & partying like a rock star -- but he's also been sneaking around with Demi's daughter, Rumer Willis, behind his ex's back. They're trying to keep their encounters secret, well -- you know, because the two of them carrying on a relationship after he cheated on Demi and ultimately ruined their marriage is kind of frowned upon.

Supposedly Ashton & Rumer were spotted together in his car as early as this past weekend -- and they covered their faces with their hands in an attempt to hide being seen together.

More from The Stir: Demi Moore's Daughters Give Ashton Kutcher a Hilarious New Nickname

But considering they are both grown, consenting adults, should they really be forced to keep their relationship a secret? Not necessarily, but it all depends on the nature of things.

If they are strictly seeing each other because they miss each other's company and want to remain friends, then there's really nothing wrong with what they're doing. Granted, Ashton did treat Demi pretty poorly, but that had nothing to do with Rumer. Plenty of couples cheat on each other and get divorced, but still maintain healthy relationships with the kids, so why is their situation any different? They should be able to see each other and hang out when they want to without having to conceal it from Demi, or anyone else for that matter.

But if Ashton is going all Woody Allen on Rumer and trying to make a move on her? Yeah -- that's an entirely different story. The idea of these two hooking up is nothing short of incestuous and disgusting.

Ashton may be a party boy who was unfaithful to his wife, but my gut tells me he still has the decency to know where to draw the line when it comes to Rumer. (Or at least I hope so.)

What's your take? Should divorced couples still be allowed to have relationships with their spouse's kids?

Absolutely. I am still friendly with my mothers ex husband even though things got really bad in their relationship. They both made mistakes but he was always good to me and I will always speak to him. My mother doesn't really like it but she understands.

Is it possible, that after many years of being family, they still have familial feelings for one another, despite the split? That they may still care for one another in a none-sexual way, but would none-the-less try to avoid exposure? Demi and Ashton were married for six years, and Ashton appeared to be close with the daughters. Why would that end just because he's divorcing their mother?

I don't think this is a relationship between a father figure and the exes daughter as a daughter. I feel something is going on that's NOT platonic. Yes their adults and its consentual but to do it behing demi moores back, just disgusting and low. Plus ashton was there as a father figure some point in the childrens' lives and IF their realllly dating, that's gross also, he's a man and watched her and her sisters grow up, immoral in MY opinion

If its just a familial thing...ok. Still kinda inconsiderate but oh well. If its more than that they both need to be hit repeatedly by a heavy object

I thought when opening this, that you would have proof that they are dating, but you dont.  Its all speculation. Some kids have a close relationship with their step-parents, and maybe they do.  Maybe they were hiding their faces from all the flashes?  I think you should wait, until they come out that they are dating.  I personally dont think that Rumor would do that to her mom.

My mother and step father were married for 15 years before they got divorced. So because they are no longer together, does that mean that my step father and I are no longer supposed to have a relationship? We hang out all the time, and call each other daily and my mother knows full well of it.. She doesn't see it as us "sneaking around" or that we have something other than a "platonic" relationship. I call b.s on this. Ashton was in their lives for 6 years and in that time he got close to demi's daughters. Just because Ashton and Demi are no longer together, doesn't mean he can't still hang out with his "step" daughters. Who knows, maybe Demi knew they were together anyway.

     how would it be incestuous?

There is no blood between them therefore it is not incestuous... And age wise, he would probably be more appropriate for her than her mother.....

Of course he should be able to visit with her kids. He was a large part of their lives for years. 

If he pulling a Woody well..... that's just GROSS

Shame on the author of this story for stirring the pot and planting the seed that this could be anything other than a family bond. On the other hand...if it ever does come out that there is something more going on; who are we to judge?
