The Perks Of Being A Pregnant Bride In Today's World by binarymachine(m): 6:34am On May 21
There are churches in Nigeria that don’t permit brides getting married with pregnancy. This is because they believe that only two people – the woman and her husband, should be wedded and not three (the woman, her husband and the baby). They believe that getting married while pregnant will bring a curse on the woman because, she’s supposed to be presented to her husband as holy and sanctified. They clearly warn intending couples to steer clear off sex so as not to be tempted because, the instant the bride is discovered to be pregnant on her wedding day, the wedding is either cancelled or postponed till the woman gives birth.

Sometimes, depending on how insistent the couple is, the church can do marriage blessings for the couple. Then, imagine the long stares and the silent booing the bride gets while walking down the aisle with her BABY bump. People begin to look at and treat her as an outcast or one who has committed the worse of sins. They fail to realise that she may not have planned for things to go that way but, the wedding just had to continue. They don’t know the circumstances that led to her getting pregnant before marriage and, as such, they criticize her for acting foolishly.

Truth is, no one plans for any of these to happen. They don’t just wake up one morning and decide that the woman should wed with pregnancy. It happened because two mature and consenting adults had sex and the woman got pregnant so, she shouldn’t be the only one sharing in the blames. She shouldn’t be the only one bashed by the society for what they term to be abnormal. People make their choices and, they should be held liable for them; not blaming it on the society or any other person out there.

This is not to say that getting married with pregnancy is a good thing in itself but, couples shouldn’t be bashed and jeered at for the choices they deliberately chose to make. It’s already enough trouble for the bride that there’s no bridal gown anywhere that is specifically fashioned to fit a pregnant woman so, she has to buy a bridal gown and does some fittings to ensure it suits her well. The pregnant bride is one and the same with any other bride out there.

If the Church would not wed a pregnant couple, how does the bride bear/face the shame alone?

Do the churches marry the husbands or do they call only the wife out?

Considering that the average Nigerian Church's stance is that sex and its consequences are actions men 'do' to women, your OP does not hold water.

Besides, the OP has no single perk of pregnancy before marriage or specifically, marrying with pregnancy.

If you want to get pregnant before marriage, please do and conduct your marriage where it is accepted.

End of story.

The norms are changing, most parents these days insist on pregnancy, then marriage follows immediately, to avoid issues

Re: The Perks Of Being A Pregnant Bride In Today's World by DavSagacity(m): 11:00am On May 21
That reminds me. My brother in-law that did not allow my wife to visit me and spend the night with me during courship actually got his wife pregnant before marriage. And they went on to do Nikah and court registry. He knew what he did was wrong. And thus don't want it to repeat itself under his care
Marriage is honourable and the bed UNDEFILED.

Don't really get what the whole write up is about.

Churches have a right not to wed pregnant ladies,some won't even wed you if they hear you have had sex with your intending spouse and its not like the groom is exempted from the blame, why making it seem like its only the ladies that are blamed or did she impregnate herself, the churches know the couple in question.

That aside, churches have their rules a lot of churches will never wed a pregnant bride and some will. If you really must have a church wedding find the one that will wed you with pregnancy.
