    Does anyone get married before having kids anymore??

    • VeronicaRamos

      Is that important? Having a child is already a big commitment.

        Veronica Ramos you keep reporting peoples posts that aren’t even offensive. You also post on everything that is teen pregnancy related and now this i’m starting to think you got pregnant as a teen and and never got married to the father. In general it’s not that hard to keep your legs closed or use protection. Also if you aren’t married to the person you have a child with there is a big chance one of you doesn’t love the other. Another high chance percentage is that someone is trying to keep another person in a relationship and not lose them if they aren’t married. THIS is what mostly men complain about…yet children born out of wedlock continue on.

        It’s a commitment if you PLAN the pregnancy, which I doubt is what happened here.

      The people that love each other get married before having kids the ones that don’t, don’t. I don’t get how someone says they love being a parent and they are committed to a kid but they don’t/can’t love being a spouse and don’t want to commit? It’s kinda odd and why on Earth would someone have kids with someone they don’t love or want to be together with forever? Why put the child through something like that? like a predictable separation?

      This couple is more likely going to try to stay together for the kids sake but end up separating and having a horrible custody battle afterwards. Remember Halle Berry “I’m in love, marriage is just a piece of paper” afterward now they’re both in court fighting for custody.
