  • I would wait until you are both married. It makes things a lot easier.

  • Get married first. Be married for two or three years. THEN talk about hving a baby and what parenthood means to both of you. HAving children is a huge decision. You need to be happy together before you add kids to the relationship. Really.

  • Married! If he isn't committed enough to marry you, how do you know he'll stick around and be a real dad to the kids?

  • Hubby asked if I would have his kids 2 months into the relationship. 3 years later we had a beautiful baby boy. And yes we are married.

  • YOU DONT HAVE TO BE MARRIED TO HAVE KIDS = COMMITMENT COMES IN MANY FORMS - IT IS ULTIMATELY YOUR DECISION WHETHER YOU TWO KNOW ONE ANOTHER WELL ENOUGH AND COULD BOTH BE GOOD PARENTS TOGETHER NOT SOMEONE ELSE TO DECIDE - GOOD LUCK
