TTC Without the Ring

Is anyone here TTC with their SO even though they're not married? Would love to know I'm not alone. How are you all handling the comments and such?

I am now married so I don't meet this criteria. But my husband and I were together 8 years before our wedding. I could understand you dealing with comments if you guys haven't been together long but if you two have been together a long time and you are both comfortable not being married then it's no body's business but your own.][/url]

I am in the same shoes as you! I am 24 and have been with my boyfriend for 2 years now. No ring, but we have decided to start TTC and are not planning on getting hitched for a while.

I don't think teh ring is that important,the important thing is to be able to raise a baby in a stable,loving,financially secure home!These things are important for me,not a paper that says ur married!I know tens of people including my uncle who aren't married but they have been together for 20+years with kids and a stable home!I think people should mind their own business!

My boyfriend and I are also TTC without the ring! Glad we're not alone! I know the ring is coming eventually, but we're in no rush. We would rather be spending money on a baby than a wedding. 11dpo right now and getting anxious. AF is due Sunday. Would appreciate some babydust! I took an EPT at 9dpo and got a BFN so I am just trying to hold off 2 more days before I test again. But all of the symptoms I thought I was feeling at 9dpo seem to have vanished. I am worried I was imagining them.

I am TTC without the ring!! Glad to see someone else! We have been together a year and a half (everyday since we met) and head over heels since then. He is 39, I am 26. He has 3 girls already from a previous marriage. We plan on having 3 kids. Our wedding date is set for 2018 so we decided to start now. Me personally, I don't want to be having kids when I'm 40, I plan on spacing them out. My mom was on hesitant but understands and is on board. I'm so happy to see someone else!!
