I voted other because we do have kids but we did not get married because we had kids, yes we are involved with each other and everything that comes with marriage and kids, financial reasons not so much to be honest financialy we would probably be a bit better off seperate than we are together only because I would be back home where I would have help with the kids and be able to work.  But we are together because we are in love with each other.

I financially have to live with my ex sometimes (he comes back and forth when he cant find free place to stay, and we are still tied financially right now while i'm looking for a job, its a PITA when he is here. But DD does like the extra time she gets iwth her dad who she doesnt see as often when he lives else where.  But we wouldnt/didnt stay married just for financial or just  for DD, i'd like my duaghter to grow up and be proud that i had enough self-respect to kick his lying/cheating ass to the curb.

We did get married when i was pregnant, but it was NOT because of that, we already were planing our wedding and moved it up a year to do it before DD (though things would be so different if we had waited i think)

And my current SO, madly in love for sure :D

We are together because we are in love. Coming from a divorced family, i feel that if you cnat get along 90% of the time you shouldnt stay together just for kids. it does more harm than good. my parents tried to make it work for way too long and instead took their fights out on my sis and myself. and we had to watch all their fighting. the divorce was a relief. stay civil for your kids but never have your only reason for being with the person be your kids

Because we love each other. Everyone pushed us to get married when I got pregnant and we just weren't ready (I know, I know, ready for a baby, but not marriage?). The way we see is that we'll get married for love, regardless of our daughter, not because of her.
