How long were you married before you had your first child?

Are you happy with the timing of your child? If you could change it how would you have, ie have your child sooner or later in the relationship?

  • I got pregnant 4 mos after we got married. We were in college & wanted to wait at least 5 years. I wouldn't change it though because in our 3rd year of marriage we had some rocky times & the only thing that forced us to work it out was the fact that we couldn't stand the thought of causing her to grow up in a broken home & shifting her back & forth between 2 homes every week. We worked out our issues & we've been HAPPILY married now for 27 years with 3 more kids.

  • 6 months after we were married I gave birth to our son. The only thing I would have changed was not getting married so soon. I was raised that having a child out of wedlock is a disgrace. I think if we would have taken more time to get married, things would be a little easier right now.

  • We got married when our first was about 10 months old. The timing really bothered me back then, but looking back I wouldn't change a thing, especially the fact that we eloped.
