Should a couple get married just because they are having a baby? For the most part, having a baby usually comes after two people are married and are ready to bring someone else, a baby into their union. Yet, in the society in which we live, we find that this is not always the case. Many people begin having sex, forget or choose not to use protection and end up unexpectedly getting pregnant. For those that choose not to reverse this process, have a very important decision to make. Are they to bring a child into this world as a bastard or are they to create a family for this child to come into? Many people make these decisions hastily, without thinking things completely through, kind of like their decision to not use protection and getting into this situation in the first place. The way that this should go is that only two people that love each other and intend on being committed to each other should decide to get married because it is something that they would do regardless of their current situation. No one should get married in order to correct a mistake on their part, especially when this was never part of the original plan. More over, no one should be engaging in such acts, if your not prepared to deal with the reality of such situations, which is why certain things or acts should left up to those in committed relationships.
