  • people dont know how to take a pill or use a condom apparently. lol im kidding im engaged and pregnant. sometimes people want children even if it means they arnt married at that moment. it doesnt make a difference IMO unless it was an "accidental" pregnancy

  • what does a marriage mean these days anyway, as long as the child is loved and taken care of properly i dont think it should matter if the person is married or not.

  • Different values, lack of values, and/or accidents, lol. My and my husbands parents had us out of wedlock and we really wanted to change that. We thought it was very important to establish a marital foundation because WE felt that it would give our kids the best parental foundation. DH went without a good father, and although my parents eventually married, they are now separated because they basically got married for me.
    I'm sure there are really lots of reasons why. But everyone's reason is so different.

  • Ummm.. Seriously it is a concern for all of us. Look at it this way.. wouldn't you rather be in a committed relationship and know that there are going to be two parents carrying for the child you are brining into this world, rather than just getting pregnant and not being concerned about the consequence. Sad, but true... Both girls and women are not trying to get a man to marry them, they are trying to have his baby... why? Because it's what all the celebrities are doing... It's actually more like trying to trap a man, which is alot worse and chances are he will walk...

  • Happens all the time. Sometime pills, condoms, and diaphragms don't always work. Sometimes it's just meant to be. As long as the baby is loved, other things can be looked over
