TTC Without the Ring

Mon Dec 28, 2015 4:06 pm

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.

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!!
