If you’re a Twitterholic, then you know that there isn’t a day that goes by that the people of the bird app aren’t having a little tussle. Is marriage a bigger commitment than having kids?
That controversial question seems to live rent-free in everyone’s debate circle–including the one in the replies under a user’s recent tweet about the matter.
“How is marriage too big of a commitment but having kids together isn’t? Y’all wild,” the young woman wrote on the platform.

Following her statement, fellow users poured in with their opinions–some combating while others cosigned.
“Well, if that’s the case, you shouldn’t have sex before marriage either because you could just have sex the condom break and boom pregnant,” a man responded.
Another person added in the mentions, “They feel like they can control a child but know a marriage require accountability from the getgo.”
Of course, points of view differ, and ways of thinking are more complex in most, especially with the goal of jumping the broom not being a priority on the newer generation’s list of family aspirations.
Could that be a result of seeing the outcome of those before them who made a (supposed) lifelong commitment that didn’t last past the time that they were born?
A good majority argued that although going half on someone’s life scientifically connects you for life, mentally and emotionally, it doesn’t.
Here’s what they had to say about it…

This is something I need the girlies to understand – kids aren’t the glue you think they are. 9/10, you’ll be responsible for the majority of the child rearing and if you’re going at it alone, you’re likely to be financially responsible as well.

THANK YOU! When you have a child with someone you are tied to that person FOREVER. It doesn’t matter what they do or what road they go down y’all are forever connected. They actions will forever affect yo child which in turn will affect you.

I have asked so many people this question, and everyone’s answer is nonsense. It makes me think that the person who doesn’t want to get married, doesn’t love their partner enough and isn’t willing to commit to them. I don’t want that for myself.

People will have kids just to keep that person in their life because they have control issues.

Marriage isn’t for everyone. A child born outside of marriage doesn’t make the child or the relationship void. There’s no difference between a couple who is not married and has a child and a couple who gets a divorce after having a child.

Ppl only care about sex and money now a days and they will deal with whatever comes with it

this has always been a hard topic because i feel for decades, religion covered a big reason why ppl felt they had to get married before having children. i understand why, but i feel like for some relationships, if marriage isn’t their way of expressing that much commitment idm.

It’s not. It’s just an excuse and tbh I’d rather do marriage first than have children. The marriage I can get out of. The children are forever but that’s just my opinion

Don’t see myself marrying in this generation but still always wanted to be a mother 🤷🏽♀️

I’m married and have two children. One of these relationships I have the choice to walk away from at any point.

Differntiation is key: Marriage isn’t about kids. You can parent w/o marriage. Kids need parents, not married parents. Parents are committed to kids not each other. Parents can agree on how to raise kids + divide responsibilities for the kids w/o marrying each other. Etc., etc.

I see this tweet like 2X a week😂😂😂 but y’all gotta think about the fact that you can’t have an unplanned marriage but it’s super easy to have an unplanned pregnancy. It happens.
