  • If you husband is legal age and he is with you, I don't think it is ilegal. esp in your home.

  • With a child, I wouldn't do anything illegal. Don't drink....your hubby will with his friend regardless of what he says.

    YOU need to be sober for your child in case anything comes up! The authorities will not be too "happy" if something happens and they are called out and find you at 18 intoxicated with a child in the house. Child protective services will be called in. It's not WORTH it!

  • I don't think it's fair to say her hubby will drink. I mean, I'm 21 and everything, but my hubby will stay 100% sober so I can drink if I want to.

    I still wouldn't do it though, for safety sake.

  • Yeah, I would. I was sneaking out drinking before I was that age. So if I had my own when I was 18, I am definately sure I would of! If you're at home and the kids are in bed..............BUT, I am NOT telling you to

  • 18 is the legal age here. If you are a responsible enough to get married and have a child you should be responsible enough to have a drink once in a while

  • I got married at 17. I think that if your mature enought to take that step your mature enought to drink. Also I think 18 should be the drinking age everywhere. If your old enough to go into service for our country shouldn't you be old enough to drink?

  • Someone needs to stay sober for the sake of the kiddo's. I don't see anything wrong with it. You were old enough to lay down and make a baby and get married, then your old enough to drink responsibly. Not telling you to drink just saying. But like i said someone needs to stay sober for the kids.
