Marriage before children?
Posted 28 May 2008 - 04:02 PM
I know this sounds old fasioned, but when my partner and me decided we wanted to have children, marriage suddenly became more important to us. We are waiting until after our marriage until I come completly off the contraception.
Has this happened to anyone else?

We said taht if we became pregnant before the big day, then no big deal, that is what God would will, but we have definitely taken ever measure to prevent it! LOL
So I hear ya!
(Plus my dress is TIGHT across my bust/waist & I paid a lot for it and want to fit in it!)
Sorry for the novel, ladies!

I guess we're at the point now where if I got pregnant before the wedding (in 3 weeks) it wouldn't be a big deal. However, I'd be pretty pissed off! I've had some scares in teh past and to go to an AI with an open bar and not be able to enjoy would not be fun! LOL

Needless to say, we got engaged shortly after because I think he realized we couldn't just keep dating forever. LOL We kept talking about marriage, but never got the ring. So this was definitely a motivating factor so start taking that next step.

I had to cancel my beautiful Sottero dress and get an entirely differnet dress that is not what I had in mind to wear on MY day.
HOWEVER, I would not change a thing. I don't care about dress, nor do I care about not being able to drink, not do I care that I am going to be rather large in my pictures (okay maybe I do just a litttle, lol). I am so thankful and blessed to be pregnant that I would gladly change the dress and drinks!
We have been engaged over a year and have been together for 4 years. We quit using protection about a year into our relationship, because we just never thought getting pregnant was an option for us.
I guess if someone is pretty sure they could get pregnant they have no problems waiting until after they are married. For us, we took it when we got it!
