Does anyone ever get married anymore, BEFORE having kids? It drives me crazy that people have so many kids, by different fathers, etc. Seriously, what ever happened to getting married and THEN having children? I get you mess up in HS or whatever, have a kid, etc. but to just keep doing it?? I know a girl who's 20, has 3 kids, 3 different dad's, and to me, that is just insane!!! Just wanting to know why it's not important to give kids stability anymore?

Shit happens my dd wasn't planned and i'm a single mom. Yes I wish I could have been married and that she had a great dad but she wanted to be born so she was her dad is a no show but life goes on and I wont be ashamed of having different fathers for my kids when I have more. Just because they wont have the same bio father doesn't mean they wont have the same dad.

Because I have no desire to get married. But I want kids. Why should I HAVE to get married?

You are absolutely trying to judge. You dont just get to tack that on there to make yourself 'sound' nice. Own it.

Hubby and I had two of our three children before getting married. We lived together for 10 years. Not everyone wants to throw a party, lol

Isn't marriage a religious thing? If you want kids but aren't religious then what's the big deal?

Im guessing you will get responses of "you dont need money, marriage, a house, food, an education..... to have stability." o.O  enough said.

Why must I get married just to have children? It's not ESSENTIAL that I marry before children. I can support my children so what does it matter?

Whether people marry before having children, whether they have more than one father, whether they have a child every year - it's nobody elses business.
