Teens who get married are doing it just because they got pregnant!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Were you married as a teenager?

Why did you get married so early? You could be having fun in your twenties instead of paying bills!!

Did you just get married because you got pregnant and you felt as if you had to? Are you divorced now??

Post your teen wedding pics!

I was 16 when I got married, and was 8 months pregnant when I got married.  We knew we were eventually going to get married, but yes the baby coming rushed it.  We agreed we wanted to start our child's life off with a family all under one roof, and in a stable enviroment.  never regretted it.  Money was tight, and I didn't party, but that didn't matter to me, I was happy...had a loving little family and focused on that.  Nine years and two kids later we are still married and happy.  Don't regret it at all.  And I would have had to pay bill whether I had kids and married or not.

I got married 6 days after my 18th birthday. I wasn't pregnant but DH and I did alright have a children (she was 2 months at the time) 

We got married because we wanted to and DH was joining the USCG.

We still have fun by going out and I think every 20 something year old should be paying bills no matter if they're married or not.

We still are married. We been together nearly 9yrs and married for nearly 6yrs.

We weren't in our teens, but we got married young. I was 20 & DH was 22 when we got married. We had our first child when I was 22 & DH was 24. We've been married for over 15 years.

In my HS, we had a couple of girls that were married before we hit our Junior year. None of them ended up pregnant before our senior year and to my knowledge they're all still married.

We got married at 19 and didn't have children until two years later when we were 21. We are still together, been married 5+ years. We met when we were 11 and have been together ever since.
We chose our life. We planned it together. And we love it.

Yes, 17.

Because I felt I was ready and wanted it. Being married doesn't limit fun things I want to do. I would have to pay bills in my twenties either way.

No. I got pregnant AFTER marriage. Not divorced.

My grandparents married as teens... they are still married 60 years later. No, they weren't pregnant. Lol.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee
