    Add me to the “others.”  I think that having a baby is more an immediately life-changing event; you only get nine months to prepare, and then your life/views/future/etc… are immediately different the moment the baby makes it’s appearance in the world.  However, I think the years (for many couples) it takes to nuture a relationship to the marriage stage is also life-altering; it just takes a little longer. 

    Also, while I understand the argument that marriage is “less permanent” than having a baby, I disagree with it.  Sure, people get divorced every day, but people also have abortions every day and give their children up for adoption every day.  And I think that for a lot of couples, divorce is not as easy or optional as we tend to think.  Just my two cents.  🙂

    Ooooh, tough question. Both events involve creating lifelong relationships with people, so I can’t say that one is more important than the other. Then again, you’re creating another life by having a baby, which is just beyond incredible. I’ll pass on this poll, haha.
