  • Nope! Unless you already had it planned, it's never a good reason.

  • No. If you get married to someone "just because" you had a baby with them, it's a sure way to be miserable. Get married for the whole package. A baby does not a marriage make.

  • That was my main reason to not get married. Not that I don't want to marry his father, but I didn't want to do it just because I was pregnant. In my opinion, no, but that's just me.

  • NO....not only no but HELL NO..marriage only complicates things, trust me. And if you arent married yet and are having a baby id wait for a while before you think about that. A baby changes everything i promise !

  • No its not. Best to not be pregnant when you get married---then you will be getting married for the RIGHT reasons.
