Did they have a life?not sure.They were immigrants.Coming over to this country and had nine children.Life I do not believed that the had. With a big family.No way I can see.The only life will be the family and relatives. Did your parents have a life before kids The photo is mine Pet cemetery.Two cockers buried there.

It is a full time job raising kids, and expensive. I hate full time jobs and to poor to have kids why I never had any kids. Much respect to the ones that like that sort of thing and keep the world going. I would feel bad, but world is too populated. So need not to feel bad, I am doing the world a service. I make bad jokes.

"had nice children" , you mean nine, don't you? My parents had 10 years difference so, I am sure that my Dad had a lot of time to have a life before he got married.

I have a feeling if you were to ask your parents, they might tell you they had a wonderful life, made better by having children. I know it was hard times, but hard times strengthen people. From the pictures I saw of my parents before they married, I would say they had a good life before they were married.

My mom was a reporter for her town's newspaper and my dad was a naval aviator during WWII before they were married. They both had lives as young adults before they had kids.

Well, my dad was and still working under govt sector, and my mom had got her Masters from the university, when they got married and had me a year later. Sure they were happy and self-involved in their lives and families, but they don't talk about it much.

My parents married rather late in life. Yes, they had their own lives before they met. My father lived in Italy and in Brazil before he settled back in Germany.

First I LOVE that photo. Did my parents have a life? Surely not, ugh I can't even imagine them having s_x, lol. Just kidding but I am sure they had one, don't know what they did with it and dad no longer remembers much so can't say. Hmmm, good question.

I have one photo of mom and dad together while they were dating, so until they got married and had me and my sisters, pretty sure they had a life. :)

My mother used to tell me that she went out with her sister to dance, their grandmother stayed with them all the time. My father went out with friends before he left for the front during WWII. Yes, my parents had a life.

Before becoming their children, I'm sure our parents were someone's children too and had their own worlds and lives

Mine parents did not have life for sure.. Especially my mom.. They lived in a conservative society

My parents were busy with their own careers before they had children. My mom was a Biology Teacher and my dad was a Civil Engineer. I am not sure though if they had a life (social life, etc) before they got married. haha

My parents were teenagers when they got married. He was still living at home..but I think she was living close to the store she was working in. Surprised she could afford the rent. I guess he or her parents must have been helping her.

I don't care. The past can't help much. What's most important is the present and tomorrow.

This is something that I am not sure about, they were both in the forces before I was born, then they left that and went into the pub trade. It’s something that I do think about a lot, I’m always talking to my kids about my childhood etc, but I can’t recall them telling me much about theirs.

They worked on farms all their lives, either their parents' farms or their own but that was what they enjoyed.
