Is it OK To Have the Baby Before the Wedding?

We all know one of the latest celebrity trends is having a baby before getting married. In the past this type of arrangement was incredibly scandalous. But so far it seems to be working for Tom and Katie, Brad and Angelina, and Heath and Michelle. What do you guys think? Is it OK to have the baby before walking down the aisle?

Personally for me it wouldn't work, but if it feels alright to the 2 people who are involved then that's all that really matters. they should do what works for them and it should not be about anyone else's ideas of what's right or wrong.......

I see nothing wrong with having a baby before marriage.

It's a personal choice between the couple and if they're comfortable with their decision, why should it be an issue?

I think as long as the child has parents that love him/her and can work together to create a stable living environment it shouldn't be an issue if you're married or not. Two amazing examples are Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell and Susan Sarandon/Tim Robbins (totally agree, lindaloo)

i think it's probably a good idea to get married before the kid is old enough to be confused by it socially... but beforehand not necessary. i think getting married because your pregnant causes more problems in the long run. at least it did with my folks...

I have no problem with people having babies outside of wedlock. Who cares? Most of us who do get married end up divorced anyway. Those that don't bother getting married just have less paper work and stress in the end.

Im with you sica, I was shocked that so many people selected that. How is it that a piece of paper makes an environment stable for a child? You can be together without being married and be stable.

I think a lot of people plan to get married then have kids but lets face sh*t happens. The only full proof way to have kids after being married is to not have sex. I really dont like the getting married because you are preggers idea. What is a piece of paper going to do? Its not erasing the fatc that you are pregnant. Why not have the kid and raise it together then if you feel you want to get married do it. But if both of you are comfortable not being married but being together then why change it

I had my 2 kids before I got married.. I was raised in church and of course I did not want to have kids b4 marriage , because I was 18 when I had my 1st kid... It was really hard because I was not living with their father... I think that it is best to get married then have kids just because I know how hard it can be sometimes. And ya Libby I think most girls now days who have kids think it is cool not to be married to show alot of people that they are strong and can take care of themselves... It is not an easy thing to do and I also felt like I was looked down upon from people in my church...But, I am over that.. I just look at my girls and realize they are precious gifts from God....

Although I agree that getting married just because you're preggers is a bad idea (in fact probably the worst idea) I couldn't see myself having kids before I'm married. I think it's a personal preference. I just wouldn't feel secure in a relationship having a baby with someone I'm not married to. Besides, even though I know lots of great people who were raised in single parent homes they all tell me that they wished their father/mother could have been their too. I think it is the "cool thing" now to have kids and not be married. It's kind of a fashion statement, but like everything else these things get old.

I wouldn't care if someone has kids and then marries later. As I grew up I thought it was very bad when two people that had a baby didn't marry but now my views have totally changed. I don't care anymore what a couple does. It's their business what they do.

Kelly - I certainly don't think Americans have a monopoly on this "thing" of getting married before having kids. Believe it or not, people all over the world do this too and did it for years before America even existed!

oops - sorry Kelly, mis-read your comment - I agree on the "American thing" !
estella estella 10 years
1. I totally disagree that it is "American." People do it all over the world. 2. It's NOT a new trend just cuz white celebs are doing it. Many of the non-white kids I teach say they want to have kids around age 20 and get married at 25. 3. I wonder if celebs are doing it cuz then they don't have to think about pre-nups.

Well, we all know that babies have a bad timing. They come when they come, no matter if their parents are legally married or not. *shrug*

I think if you have already discussed marriage with your partner and you happen to get pregnant before you are married it's ok. For myself, I would like to be amrried a few years before getting pregnant. I also had a friend who got a girl pregnant and married her bc "it was the right thing to do". Well, they're divorced now. They weren't ready for marriage.

In this day and age and with the current divorce rate..who cares. I wouldn't have done it, but that just me and how I was raised and the situations that I experienced. I personally don't look to too many entertainment personalities for morals..mostly just entertainment. What business is it of mine? Who am I to pass judgement on whether or not they get married... Its only really fun gossip or debate whether or not they should get divorced :)
