do you think that being 18 and having two kids under the age of two is wrong?

  • Not if you are taking care of them on your own without the use of tax payers and you are taking care of all of their needs including physcial, mental and emotional needs.

  • If you can handle it, afford it, and are doing it, then no. But I can't see that as being easy, seeing as I was 16 and didn't know what I was gonna do with one!

  • Wrong? not at all. Not exactly the best decision for most people, but as long as your kids are happy and healthy then who cares?

  • not unless u/they arent supporting themselves and are getting prego on purpose and knowingly living off family for EVERYTHING. I was married at 18. Tried for our 1st shortly after our wedding.. turned 19 the same month i got prego. had him at 19. Hes now turning 2 in 7 days... and I am pregnant with our second [whom we also tried for] -- im 36 weeks pregnant and expecting her early november.. so they will be 2 yrs apart [almost exactly] -- but my hub & i have been together for 8 yrs. and married for 3. Very stable, loving and understanding relationship and we are on our own two feet as far as finances goes. Capable of living on our own and supporting ourselves as well as two young children. So no, i wouldnt say 18 is a horrible thing, you need to make sure this is a very thoughtout well planned idea.. ask yourself.. am i capable of this, mentally, physically, and financially? Some 30-40 yr olds i know arent.
