How long after you were married did you have children?

My husband and i got married in january of 2010. i conceived my son in march and he was born in dec. we didn't move in together until june of 2010. it was very difficult, the entire pregnancy period sucked. our relationship then and now is rocky. i'm wondering how far into your marriage was it until you had your baby? how did it affect your relationship, if at all.

  • First marriage -first child was born 5 months later. Marriage was a mistake from the beginning lasted a couple of years.
    Second marriage - kids came 9 years later. We've been married for 16 years.

  • We had been together for 6 years, married for 2 by the time our first was born. We'll have been married for 7 years by the time our second is born. Of course it effected our relationship. It's both rewarding and stressful at the same time. On one hand, we can look at her and be proud of the beautiful, intelligent little girl that we've raised so far. On the other, we have less time to ourselves, we can't go out at the drop of a hat, etc.

  • we were together for 11 years before having our son 3 years ago- we were "perfect" having our son made even US rocky.. it takes a while to get in a groove when becoming parents. still the only time we fight ( which is more now than the past 11 years ) is when it comes to discipline or concerns about our son... hang in there mama

  • First marriage I already had dd and we married because of her and divorced. Second marriage I was with him around a year before we got pregnant. We divorced because he cheated while I was pregnant and after. Now I took my time with my husband I am with now. We met in 2002, didnt start dating until 2003, and had dd in 2005, and got married in 2006. Yes it was backwards to an extent but we had been together 2 yrs and known each other longer before adding a child.

  • We waited 3 years after we were married to have a child. It felt like part of life.
