More and more I see "baby daddy's" or BF's instead of DH's, or women getting pregnant and having children and living with their baby daddy's for a few years - then MAYBE marriage. Maybe I am a bit old fashioned, but whatever happened to getting to know someone first, praticing safe sex, and having a courtship before getting married or bringing children into the world? This question is not meant to offend anyone, but I was just wondering.
I'm glad I waited to have kids after getting married. It gave us a chance to be a team and to understand each others strengths and weaknesses. Parenting takes so much from both of us (and returns 10 fold) but we're in it together. I'm the product of divorce and a violent and messy one at that. So I think my past has everything to do with the way I live my life now. Maybe it is old fashioned, I don't know, I do know I wouldn't change a thing.

I will say the pregnancy rate for non married woman have risen. BUT even "back in the day" when it was looked upon as almost unforgivable for doing such things it was still going on. They just didn't talk openly about it and if they got pregnant they were either sent away to girls homes or had a back alley abortion. So, things really have changed a whole lot. I think it's just now it's accepted to a greater extent and therefore people are open about it.
