I am just curious on peoples opinions here...BE NICE. I am 22 and married, and was married before we concieved and had our son. I have several friends around my age and some older who are unmarried but ttc, pregnant, or have children. Some of these friends have intent to marry, some don't. Of those that plan to marry, one is due in spring, the baby was a "surprize" but they feel it's excited, and plan to marry in a few years. Another couple planning to marry waited until their baby girl was a toddler. Another couple I know has 2 kids, planning on more, but doesn't plan to marry. They say that it's just a formality that isn't nessecary. What are your views on kids before or without marriage? In my opinion the order should be marriage then babies, but just because a baby comes before marriage doesn't mean the parents' are bad or that they are lacking anything that a married parents have.
*Remember be NICE, no judging or attacking.
