    the bigger commitment?

    Advertisements
    I've shot two weddings in the last two weeks of couples who have had kids before they got married. Now, each to his/her own... but in casual conversation with one of the couples, they mentioned that they had been together and had kids before marriage because "they weren't ready for that kind of commitment..." ok... well, isn't having a kid a BIGGER commitment?


    so discuss... is marriage OR kids the "bigger commitment?"

    Kids are a MUCH bigger commitment than marriage.

    I would think kids would be a bigger commitment...You are commited to each other for that childs lifetime, and people can get a divorce if they dont like each other.
    Are you scrappy enough for me

    kids are more important. I love my DH but if i was ever in a situation where I had to choose i would choose my kids.

    Kids are a bigger commitment. You are responsible for their well being, their lives, the whole shebang! Your kids are your kids for life... (no matter what happens between the parents)

    Well when I got pregnant with #1 there wasn't a question as to whether I was keeping him. But there was question as to whether I wanted to marry the guy who impregnated me. We still hadn't made that decision when #2 came along and I am quite thankful that we never felt the need to marry. It saved me a whole lot of hassle when I finally left his dumb ass.

    But I will say that yes, children are bigger commitment but to me that isn't a choice. Whereas marriage is. (so I chose other)
    Needs work.
