  • I don't wish it but I do think it sometimes, about my husband but then I get over being pissed off and move on.

  • There were years when I wished we hadn't gotten married. We were miserable. But I never wished I didn't have my kids, they are the light of my life. Thankfully, now we are very happy, but I understand the feeling.

  • Yes! My husband and I are going through a very rocky time right now and if we had never gotten married, I wouldn't think twice about ending the relationship. But all the formalities and legalities that come along with a marriage are making it seem like it might be worth working it out, even if I'm not 100% happy right now.

  • No, but I do wish we would have dated for a bit longer so I could have finished my degree before marriage and kids.

    Answer by AF4life at 1:34 PM on Jul. 5, 2011

  • I hate marriage. I can't imagine not being with my husband, but the stigma that comes with being married drives me insane. Like because we're married we have ownership over each other. So yeah, I would not be married if it were up to me, but for legal reasons it was, and is, what is best for us both.

    As for kids, would I give them up now that they are here? Not a chance. But do I ever wish I hadn't had them in the first place? Yes. I love my children, but I LOVED my prekid life. I loved the freedom, the work, and everything else that came with it. And honestly I miss my pre-kid life greatly!

  • oh YES!!!!! Ive been with my husband almost 5 yrs. Married for 1 this past June. I look back and think "wtf have I done" when we fight or get into petty arguments. I think about going out with my single friends clubbing but then I think about how good he is to me when we dont argue or when we get "us" time and all thoughts go out the window. But NEVER wish I didnt have my babies!
