So, do celebreties not use birth control or is it just my imagination that many of them get pregnant before they get married???

Lots of people have kids without being married. My boyfriend and I have been together for 4 years, have an almost 3 year old son, and do not plan to ever get married. I don't think its such a big deal, whether you're a celebrity or not.

marriage then children or children then marriage..



Its not "The Talk" that these celebs are ignoring,they love the press.



As for us non-celebs,a child can still grow up in a loving home with a Mommy and  a Daddy without them being wed.Many couples are not ready for marriage and why have them have a "shot gun wedding" where everyone is presured.....I know I know if your not ready to be married then have safe sex right.



Then again we are only human

I don't think that not being married will make them a worse parent. Just like some couples who stay together for the sake of the child/ren, it's not always best and can, in some cases, do more damage than good.



The thing that concerns me, is that these people are looked up to and respected by young girls. With the rate of change in relationships, it's sometimes hard to tell which guy the celeb is actually pregnant to. IMO, that would indicate a lack of contraception being used, and some young girls will think that's acceptable, possibly leading to a higher teen pregnancy rate, and an increase in STI's.

i am an unmarried 19 year old mother of 7 month old ethan and i have another baby on the way i have been with my fiancee for 2 and a half years he is the only man i have slept with and we own our own home and have just sold it to move to a better location for our childrens sake we have a sick son who we take on a two hour trip to hospital every two weeks and have done so for the past 3 months i hope you don't mean or think that unmarried couples or young mothers in general are bad parents an posting something like this on here where a lot of younger mums, older mum's, unmarried mum's, and couples of the same sex come to get support for their situation you have to expect backlash for the comment on marriage and some couples do use birth control like my partner and i did and we ended up pregnant 4 times so please reword your post cause alot of people will be offended by this (i had two miscarriages before my son was born) p.s i live in Australia where gay marriage is not yet leagal that is what i mean by same sex couples my foster mother is gay and i love her so much for being herself she has 3 kids of her own and they love her just as much as i do she's not married and she's a great mum my grandmother wasn't married and has four gorwn children who love her more then life but my birth mother was married and i can tell you this much not the best childhood my mother and father never worked never gave us a stable home where as my partner and i do and have given our children what my parents never did give me so marriage is not always best and thats comming from some one who knows

And Lordy... what would they do if they had no nannies??

I don't agree with Deanne, but I was brought up in the south where we teach our children that a woman and a man get married first.  Then they have children.  End of story.  The more poeple have children out of wedlock, the more it will appear acceptable.  I don't find it that way, and you may not either if your teenager winds up pregnant b/c no family values were instilled in her life.  Just a thought, but I have taken my Lunesta tonight. Please do not reply with a hate-post.  This is simply a discussion

hmmm..good question. ummm the baby thing is also a trend. even paris hilton had said that she wanted a kid, and nichole richardson even had to have one. o well, if they have love, care, and patience it doesn't matter.

Before they get married????? I don't think they really care about that!! A lot of people don't get married before having children. The majority of people I know who have children are not married & that doesn't seem to make them a worse off parent at all???????

I just think that in today's society, with the high divorce rate in general, having a baby together is of a commitment than marriage.

Honestly I think that most of them realize they want kids, but are quite clear that the possibility of a celebrity marriage lasting is pointless. A lot of them even do it alone....look at Minnie Driver....she wanted the baby...the dad didn't, but she had it anyway. Some even adopt w/o any kind of partner.

I know lots of people that get pregnant before they get married. It's not just celebrities, its just that no one care if the lady down the street is pregnant as much as the lady on TV.
