Is it important to you? Do you think you should be married prior to sex or kids?

No. It's a piece of paper. No, I don't. You should have sex when you think you are ready and you want to. Same for kids. Marriage is irrelevant.

Marriage has it's importance. I don't believe marriage should come before sex/kids.

 I think ideations are changing all the time.

We had a child before we married. Yet I stress to the kids all the time they should go to school, go to college, marry, then children. I don't want them to wast the years that I did in addiction and recovery.

Ya, I think it's important for US, Idc what others do. Or even if my kids do. It helps us be bonded in legal things like edical decisions and such, and we're proud to be married. 

I used to think it was just paper but I understand it different now.

Marriage was/is important to me. Sex and kids before marriage is a personal choice. We did not wait until we were married to have sex but we did wait to have kids.

Yes and yes to kids.  Sex should wait until you are sure you are with someone long term, not casual sex.

Married almost 30 years and almost 7 before kids.

In my house: marriage then babies. We are traditional though. Marriage has built in protections. Most of all my children were born into our marriage and I love it!

 We have been married for nearly 23 years. It was important to my husband, more so than me. I would have been perfectly happy being just as we are without the marriage certificate. It wouldn't have changed how we feel about each other. As far as children, our 18yo and 21yo think it's odd (jokingly) that their bio parents have been married since before they were born. Not too common, I guess.
