Roz, I have two classmates that got married within a few months of graduation. Yes, she was pregnant, but it was more of a “screw it, let’s get life started!” attitude than “Oops!” Two more kids after daughter Amber was born, settling down after he got out of the Marine Corps (she also graduated as a USMC 2LT, but back then pregnant Marines got discharged, because yep, that was good use of taxpayer money thrown out the window). She died a few years ago of cancer, still married, and with the love of her life and their kids around them.
