When I found out I was pregnant, everyone who knew asked when we were going to get married, and I dont want to just run to city hall because theres a baby coming. We are now living together, and are madly in love and are excited about the baby, but we will get married when the time is right for us!
One thing that my aunt suggester (shes a financial planner) is that we make sure that all the things that would be standard if we were married are covered because of the child since we are not, ie, financial stuff, child care, medical things... depends on you and what is needed. I am going to be financially dependent on him since i am planning on staying home with the baby, so she wants to make sure im covered. Just a though.
Congrats on the baby!
Thanks hun. Hope all goes well for you! Well our finances and jobs have been a big issue. He wants me to give up work. But I am not willing to do so in the near future, wouldn't even consider it. He doesn't want the baby to have two parents who work all the time.. I told him he could give up work. Oh no way. So then again I said we can still both work and raise a child properly. I think we've sorted everything now bar this. Thanks for the input ladies.
