I didn't, so here's a bump!
I don't get it either
IDK.. Me & DH started dating at 15yo.... We got pregnant, unplanned, at 24yo & married at 26yo... Before marriage & before having a kid together we didnt see it as a big deal. We "didnt need a piece of paper"... It wasnt until we needed things jointed that it mattered, like insurance..... AFTER we said "I Do" we where like "OH this is what marriage feels like, maybe we should have done this sooner"... lol.
But for the woman who are PLANNING pregnancy before marriage, I dont understand either.
Sometimes I think women have kids hoping it'll keep the guy around. Not saying anyone in this group but I've read enough CM posts to know this is true.
Well, it is not that I didn't want to wait for marriage..it is just that our oldest ds didn't want to wait for us to get married!! LOL
i would say that 50% of those babies that women have "outside of marriage" have OOPS written on thier forehead and the other 50% have "momma made me so daddy would stay" on thiers. LMFAO
Actually, i think in this day and age marriage isn't seen as it was years ago. It isn't necessary to have a piece of paper to know you are committed and love another person and want to have children with that person. A marriage license doesn't stop someone from leaving a relationship, all it really helps with is legal issues like insurance and so on but still, with the way things are involved even that isn't needed anymore either as women can get thier own insurance and so beneficiaries on life insureance, etc don't have to be spouses anymore.
