(Strip Number 4055, Original Publication Date, 28 August 1981)
Panel 1: As they walk to class, Mike asks Lawrence if his Mom is going steady with Dad's friend. Lawrence says "I dunno."
Panel 2: He also says "I dunno" when Mike asks if he figures they'll get married.
Panel 3: That's also his answer when asked if he wants Ted for a Dad.
Panel 4: When Mike asks him howcome he keeps saying "I dunno", Lawrence doesn't say that it's because he's the creation of a woman who, without evidence to back her claim up, insists that children do not enunciate like she did. He says it's because it's easiest.
Summary: It makes perfect sense to me that his not having a strong opinion about Connie's love life is the easiest thing to do; it's also the safest. If gets too close to a particular man, he'll get disappointed when the relationship collapses and if he's too much against a suitor, he's a bad child who wants his poor mother to die alone. My remembering strips that declare him to be a pain in the neck who selfishly hinders Connie's attempts to find happiness tells me that Lynn doesn't think that he/Aaron has the right to an opinion that might require Connie/her to think about needs other than her own.
