Is pregnancy a right reason to tie the knot? are you getting married for the sake of the child? or you might leading for another mistake and regret it for the rest of your life..

Pregnancy should NEVER be the reason for getting married. Because if that's all you have to tie you together then your marriage will fail and three or possible more if you have more children's lives would be miserable. I know a lot of people to get married for this reason but I just don't agree with it and I wouldn't. And I did get pregnant as a teenager. Although we would have married sooner than we did if I hadn't had my miscarriage my point is we wouldn't have got married because of the pregnancy but because we truly love one another and wanted to anyway. There are even those woman who get pregnant to trap their men too. I think this is dangerous business too.

No I won't do that. Getting married is another obligation to face. It's not a solution to make things right. Of course, i'll expect people to talk about it (my pregnancy thing) but I don't care. I will face it without strings attached. I need to settle that thing first before moving on to another step of responsibilty. ;)

Well if I got pregnant I would be worried as I'm a guy. Anyhow, I would not feel the need to ask a girl to marry me if I got her pregnant. I don't think people should get married for that reason as it will probably end in misery if their is no love between the people.

Pregnancy alone should not be a reason to get married. Without love and respect you should not marry in my view. But if you have found the man of your dreams and you get pregnant by him it is a good ide to marry. At least here. marriage ensures the family some rights than families where the parents just live together

Everything is a lot different today than it was when I was younger and had to worry about this problem. Back then you definitely got married, no questions asked. Which is the reason my generation has such a high rate of divorce and other wonderful problems...lol....
