  • my boyfriend and i have been together for almost 2.5 years and our son is 13 months old and i still have no ring. i feel WAY uncomfortable with having a kid with him and not being married. i want to share the name, the label means nothing. i think that it's a great honor for my son to share his last name so much so that i want to also. maybe if another one is on the way then he'll want to then, especially considering that i don't want to have a second with him and not be married. ive drawn the line.

  • Well, we dated for 2 months before becoming pregnant but we each told our families we had found our future wife/husband about a month after we met. We had the names of our future kids picked out before we got pregnant. Now, 4 years later we are still married and planning financially for baby #2. :) Def not a path I would suggest though! My friend is a single mom who just got engaged on Christmas and they dated for 2.5 years. Good luck!

  • Men are stupid. Tell him what you want and when you want it. They like having goals.

  • We dated about 7-8 months before we got engaged. We actually got married 13 months after our first date. That was 5 years and 3 kids ago!

  • I was a single mother when I met my husband. We dated for a little over a year when we got married (and pregnant).

  • We were together for 6 years before we finally got married. It took a few false starts, couldn't get everybody at the same place at the same time so we eloped to Reno 9 mos after we had first one(s) -twin pregnancy only one made it - we conceived our last one on our wedding night hahaha that was over 11 years ago.
