Resolved Question:

I have a baby with a man who wants to marry me. I would prefer to stay in informal relationship but he insists. My question- what would be better for me- staying in informal or formal relationship when it comes to rights to the child?

Rights stay the same no matter if you are married or not as long as he is the father. I would say if you do not want to marry then don't marry and do not let him force you into something you do not want or are not ready for.
