My mom went into labor early with me, I was born at 34 weeks. When my mom went into labor, my dad married her by proxy (my grandfather, her dad, was present) so I could be delivered on the military base (in Japan). I was an oops, my early delivery was an even bigger oops, but they dealt with it. They've been married for almost 30 years, I am so proud of them for overcoming so much and not being a statistic.

Fast forward 26 years, and I am pregnant. My boyfriend and I aren't married... the apples don't fall far from the tree, because HIS parents conceived him out of wedlock, too. But I was determined not to marry him because of the pregnancy. We are married now, for financial reasons (oh, so much better *sarcasm* but oh well), baby boy was 6 months old when it happened and while we both wish it could have been different, more ceremonious, I am happy that we did it because of something other than because we were pregnant.
