  • Absolutely was married before children. Married about 3 years before we had kids. Marriage is more than just a piece of paper to's a lifelong covenant with not only my husband, but God as well.

  • It is your life, live it the way you want. I was married before I had children, it was better for me, but not for everyone.

  • Yes for 7 years. It wasn't important to us to be married but the military requires it so we had to get married to get the insurance and to live together in housing.

  • With my first 2 we were married first and then got pregnant shortly after we said I do.. and then we got a divorce and I met my husband now and we were married before we concieved but trying before we actually got married. I do not bash for those that choose not to get married.. it is there choice =)...

  • I was married and then became pregnant a few months later. I was raised that having a child out of wedlock was shameful and a disgrace to the family. Of course times have changed and so has society.

  • We were married for a year before I got pregnant.

  • Yes we were married. Even though I view marriage as a contract. I wanted to be in that contract before I had children. As I said in another question. There are certain perks that a man and woman have when they are married.

  • Yes, married before children. We wanted to make sure that we had a stable marriage so that new human beings that we brought into the world would have this stability and security. In fact, we discovered that we enjoyed just being a couple and actually had to decide that if we wanted children that we'd better be having them. And we are very glad that we did as we see them settled down with families of their own.
