There are so many many mothers out there with even more than one child that are going to school successfully.
I know. While I'm really scared to have a baby right now, I know I won't let it stop me from doing what I've been planning to do (school and otherwise). A baby will make it harder, and I understand why my parents wish I didn't have to do it with the extra responsibility of a baby to take care of. My parents have always had really high expectations for me. They're really disappointed that I'm pregnant, but they haven't lost all hope in me yet.
I agree, marriage is a big thing and you can't just do it on an impulse. But at the same time don't worry too much about what other people think is best for your relationship, if you and your OH decide it's both something you want to do then you should do it. Just because you then decide you're going to do it doesn't mean you have to do it straight away... Some people are engaged for years before they finally get married.
It's not as if you're kids that have only just met and are rushing into it. You've been together for a reasonable amount of time and you've said that you'd prefer to do it when your child is 5 years old.
I'd prefer to be married before our child is 5 years old. If we waited until the time we originally talked about, our baby would be 5 years old. Really, I'd prefer to get married next year, not long after we graduate high school
Oh right sorry hehe thought you'd said you do want to wait that long my memory is rubbish. IMO as long as you're living together, love each other and feel it's right then nothing should stop you
I'm waiting for me and OH to get our own place and for LO to walk so he can be ring bearer. Also need OH to be christened with LO so that we can marry in a church (thanks MIL for not doing it )
