  • Absolutely not. It will only magnify them while creating new ones.

  • Having a baby puts stress on even the best of marriages. Getting pregnant might give a couple a reason to stick it out and stay together, but it definitely does NOT solve any problems!!

  • No way.......

  • No way, you are asking a child to solve a problem that 2 adults can't fix. Get your relationship straight so that you have a strong foundation on which to build a family. Children need security & peace. If you 2 can't get it solved, you can go and start new w/o having to drag your child(ren) thru each new relationship. Not fair to them, and harder for you (day care, housing, transportation, finances, etc. to support a child while looking for what your next move is. Good luck to you though!

  • Babies are not problem solvers!!! LOL Sorry I couldnt resist! Having a child is a wonderful thing... at the same time it puts a ton of stress on both of the parents! What if you both parent different, it could cause a ton of fights and arguements! If you are having relationship problems, I would get counseling... dont have a baby just because you are having problems it wont help!
    Good luck!!!

  • If it does, something went terribly wrong and I got jipped, because from what I can see, having a baby creates more marital problems. Not because of the baby, but It's just because you have more on your plate than you're use to.

  • NO! Children only make a marriage/relationship MORE of what it already was! If you have a solid relationship, it will become stronger; if it was weak, it will become weaker.
