Love and marriage: The Kardashian way
First comes love, then comes marriage -- well, not always.
While hosting a New Year’s Eve countdown in Miami on Monday, brother Rob Kardashian said, “I’m so proud of my sisters, but I’ll be married before I have a baby.”
Of course, the 25-year-old is referring to Kim and Kourtney (mom to Mason, 3, and Penelope, 7 months), both of whom aren’t married to their baby daddies. But even though he’s not planning to start a family anytime soon, Rob couldn’t contain his excitement over his sister’s pregnancy. “Kim and Kanye are over-the-moon happy,” he said. “I’m so excited to be an uncle again!”
To gain more insight into the whole “first comes love, then comes marriage” debate, I asked readers at TheNest.com if couples should wait until after they’re married to start a family. Here are their thoughts:
“I think they should at least wait until they’re not married to someone else.” -- Tiffany P.
“Everyone is different -- it depends on what works best for that specific couple.” -- Michelle G.
“In this day and age, it really doesn’t make a difference. I know couples with children who have stayed together longer than most married couples.” -- Demetria S.
“In my opinion, yes. That’s what we did and what we are instilling in our three kids. It’s not our place to judge whether it’s the ‘right way’ or not -- things happen and babies are a blessing.” -- Lindsey S.
“I promised myself that I would never have a child before I was married in order to prevent being just a baby mama. I feel that if you ‘love’ me enough to let me have your child, then you should ‘love’ me enough to walk me down the aisle.” -- Vicky B.
“Marriage isn’t for everyone. Nor does it guarantee a healthy home for the child. Everyone has to do what is best for them.” -- Natasha C.
“Wait until you are legally divorced from your last husband. That would be a good start.” -- Teegan M.
“I don’t believe in having a child with someone you aren’t positive you will spend your life with.” -- Rachael M.
Whether you’re purchasing a home or preparing for a baby, I love that the nesting process is different for every couple -- including high-profile celebs. What big move do you think should come first: marriage, baby or cohabitation?

This! is what young girls are looking to as a role model. How horrible this gaggle of money hungry "ladies" even exist in the American life. I have watched their show. It is social driol. Making money for doing crap? Really? Get a job. And don't give us this garbage that you "work" real hard.
These "ladies" are a sad excuse for the word. Go away, please go away!
