Pregnancy Before Wedding

How to Get Pregnant


When people are planning their lives together they usually always discuss how many children they are going to have. Many couples agree on the number of children, others do not agree, and some couples do not want to have any children at all. So, when a couple finds out that the bride is pregnant before wedding, they will have some major decisions to make, and some of them will probably be life altering decisions at that.

Making the Right Decision

One of the decisions that will have to be made is whether or not to get married as planned, to move the wedding forward a few months, or to delay the wedding until after the baby is born. Some things that need to be considered are how close the wedding date is to the expected date of delivery, and how both bride and groom feel about having a baby unmarried. Many brides-to-be, who have to deal with pregnancy before wedding, have most of the wedding plans in place so they decide to carry on as planned. The decision is totally up to the couple based on their wants and needs.

Baby First - Wedding Later

Many couples choose to begin their families before marriage. More and more women are getting pregnant before marriage. It is not uncommon that couples live together before they marry, sometimes for many years. Some do not marry at all. Women today can focus more on their careers, and put having a family on hold. In today's society, this practice has become widely accepted. Again, the decision rests in the hands of the couple.

Pregnancy before Wedding and Stress

Unplanned pregnancies before the wedding can sometimes create stress on the relationship, so it is important to take your time and discuss all the options available. Sometimes it helps to talk with someone neutral outside of the family who can help sort out the problems and concerns. Seek a good support system and all will most likely end well. There are a number of social workers who are ready and willing to help mom, and/or dad, to cope with the stress of pregnancy before wedding.

Medical Insurance to Help with High Costs

There is one real area of concern when deciding whether or not it is in the best interest of the bride and groom to have a baby prior to getting married. One of the areas of most concern is in terms of medical insurance. Having a baby is extremely expensive and can cost many thousands of dollars. If the couple is unmarried, and the father is the person insured, then it should be understood that most carriers will not cover the cost of having a baby due to pregnancy before wedding. Health insurance plans only cover the insured and their immediate family listed on the policy.



As a result of so many considerations, many couples choose to wait until they are legally married before thinking of conceiving a child. However, should a pregnancy occur unplanned, that is a decision that will have to be made by the couple. Information on this website might make that decision easier to make.
