We have three little ones and are finally gonna do it! We’ve been engaged since our first baby, about four years ago. We already feel married and just want to make it real. We want to celebrate our love and commitment.
We are paying for our wedding ($3-$4k) and I wouldn’t expect monetary help from anyone. I do get a little sad/envious of our friends who seem to get married just because they are pregnant and because their parents are paying. I’m sure its the right thing for them to do.
It has taken us a while (even with kids) to realize that we should be married. Its also taken time to save money.
Any brides with kids going through this?
or already married bees who’ve been through this? is it any different after marriage?

I have a child from a previous relationship and we will have one together before we are married. I never believed in getting married because you were pregnant either (thank goodness).
I don’t have parents (deceased and not around) so we will be paying for it ourselves. I joke about getting chummy with my wealthy distant relatives all the time though haha.
I’m happy with how things have turned out, I know it’s scary for a lot of ladies to have children without that “commitment” but I really think it’s more of a state of mind than the actual wedding.

– I totally agree with that, nice to know I’m not the only one!

We have one together and I had one before. He wants more, but we need to get married first.

Fi has two boys from a previous marriage and now we have our 8 month old. We talked marriage before our little one came along so him coming along didn’t make use choose to get married. He came along because of our love.

We have full custody of my fiancé’s daughter. I think it will make us feel like more of a family because we’ll all have the same last name and no one will have any idea that she’s not mine (although I think most people assume since she calls me mom). It’s nice going out and having our wedding rings on and feeling like a unified family. It’s a not a huge change, though.

We have been together for 8 years and have 2 children and we just tied the knot last month.
Although we haven’t been married long, we both feel its a bit different. We have thought of ourselves as married for years because we lived as a commited couple and were raising our family together. Now that we are married, we would both agree that it’s different. We have always loved eachother but something just changes when you promise marriage vows to eachother. It feels more secure and real. At least to us. I didn’t think I could love him anymore than I already did but I do.
