So here is a hypothetical situation. This does not include those that were virgins before marriage.

Say you were dating someone and you were in love so you had sex. You used protection but you ended up pregnant anyway. So what would you do?

1. Have an abortion

2. Get married before you had the baby

3. Or wait until you were ready to get married but have the baby anyway.

I am sure most of them would claim to get married before baby. That kind of crap has never mattered to me. I mean, of course being married and having a family and etc. is nice and all but it's not a freaking requirement. Who cares if I had a child and I wasn't married? Seriously?

I'm happliy married now and will not be having more kids.  However if this situation had happened before I got married, despite being on the pill and using condoms,  I would have attempted #2.  If that wasn't the right choice I likely would have had an abortion.  I was adamant I was not having a baby until I was married and I did everything possible to prevent the situation.

So you wouldn't wait?
Let's say you were in love but just not ready to get married. You saw a future with him and wanted to get married in the future.

no, I wouldnt wait, I would not have a child out of wedlock, and in all honesty, I would probably get an abortion if I was using bc and it failed

I would never have an abortion... I did have sex before marriage and it was with DH. We had been dating a couple of years. I never worried about getting pregnant though as I knew I would have a lot of problems getting pregnant...and did. It took us 7 years and Clomid to get pregnant, then our dd was stillborn at 36 weeks...it was another 4 years before our dd came home from China...so 11.5 years of marriage before kids...

I never slept with anyone that I wouldn't consider marrying because pregnancy does happen.
