We already lived together & even owned a house together when we decided to give it a try. We had already committed to each other. As we were both divorced & neither of us belonged to a religion, neither of us felt the need for a legal marriage.

We didn't talk about what if we separate, same as married couples don't talk about it. We did discuss how we wanted to raise any potential children.

Re: Children Before Marriage

My husband and I met when we were 13, we started "dating" at 14. I ended up getting pregnant shortly before my 17th birthday. We got together July 2004, Twin DDs born January 2006, DS born March 2008... FINALLY married in February of 2014. We only waited so long to get married because it took us a while to save up, but then in the end we just went to the court house LOL.

Re: Children Before Marriage

Me and my husband got pregnant when we were 17. We married and had our son at 18. We've been together for 8 years and married for 5 with a second son who is 1! Crazy!

Re: Children Before Marriage

I have been with my husband since I was 14, we have been together 11 years. We have three wonderful kids together; twin girls that are almost 9 and a son who is 6. We got married (FINALLY!) in February 2014.

Re: Children Before Marriage

My partner and I have been together for 9.5 years and we have 2 kids. We were engaged when I was pregnant with the 1st but never got around to it. I agree with those who said government has no business in the ceremony, but we also aren't religious so there is no real reason to sign the papers when it comes down to it. Maybe for financial reasons, but I have an icky feeling about getting married just for money's sake. I'b be ok with a commitment ceremony of sorts but we haven't really talked about it in the last 5 years so I can't say for sure what we will actually do.

Re: Children Before Marriage

I had a child a few months after I moved in with my then boyfriend now sweet husband of mine . I think its perfectly ok as long as you are sure you have a good support system (taking into consideration single moms as well)
