Definitely wait. The other girls have pretty much said what I would say also, you don't want to get married JUST because of the baby; and you know people would just assume that. Plus after you have a baby things definitely change. Wait it out. Good luck.

you dont want to rush your marriage JUST because of a baby. that child wont know the diff. of whether your married or not. all the baby will need is both of your love. you want your marriage to be a special day. a day YOU plan and make for the TIME you want. dont rush things. baby are very special and fun, but they do come with alot of stress.

Wait! You can look beautiful in your dress without a belly. Plus, it will be more clear that you are getting married because you love each other, not because of the baby on the way. A baby brings a lot of stress, my boyfriend and I broke up for a while when he was little, but are now back together and very happy. Don't put anymore pressure on the situation than there already will be. One thing at a time. Unless you have an old-school family...

i think it just depends on your situation. my fiance and i would get married before the baby is born but we were unable to earlier in the pregnancy. im 7 months now and we would have the chance to but it would change the insurance

i would suggest waiting to not to man bash but they do mature differently to girls and this seems to become evident when you throw children into the mix i am not saying you shouldn't get married at all but maybe you should just wait until you and him and bubs have found your own harmony together the three of you

Quoting Becca:

WAIT!!! Just wait. Trust me. He's an awesome guy, I'm sure, but having a baby puts so much stress on a relationship. Wait it out, and if after the baby everything is how it should be, then go for it!


yeah im noticing the stress part. im juggling school and a job. and then trying to fit in time to be with my fiance.
