Why Every Couple Should Marry Before Having Kids

Why Every Couple Should Marry Before Having Kids | Healthy Marriage Links and Clips | Scoop.it
Move in together, get engaged a year later, marry, have kids. Now, it seems many people are diverting from that path. They are choosing to skip the whole marriage part. This can actually be a big mistake.

For Better - Or What?'s comment, May 6, 2013 8:30 AM
My parents generation assumed people would get married before living together. My husband and I got engaged before living together. I've been aware for a while that more people get engaged (and maybe married) only after they have kids. So I guess it isn't surprising that, have rearranged the steps completely, people would be skipping some of them altogether. But I don't think it's a good idea. Not for the kids, and probably not for the adults either.
