Is having a child or children before marriage an issue in your community? Is it good or bad for a girl to have a child before she marries?
If you are a young, unmarried man, would you like to marry a girl who has had a child with another man?
Some parents say their boy should be sure that the girl he is marrying will have children before they marry; and the way to know this is for her to have a child with their son or even with another boy.
Many young people say they cannot marry a girl who has a child with another boy.
Many people consider that the value of a girl drops when she has a baby when she is not married. Nobody cares if a boy has children with different girls when he is not married.
The question then is: should having a child or children outside marriage be a hindrance to marriage?
