Parenting Before the Marriage

According to sources, about 9O percent of the marriages that take place when a woman is already pregnant end in divorce within six years. A child can enrich married life when the couple is on a firm footing, but the arrival of a child can fracture a weak marriage.

When a pregnancy makes marriage an option, the woman should consider how long she has been in the relationship with the father and whether he is dependable.

It’s a good idea to ask each other whether they would be thinking about marriage if pregnancy were not a factor. She should ask herself if she can trust him and what kind of father he would make.

Marriage is only one option a woman has in facing an unplanned pregnancy.
