I've noticed that a lot of couples are choosing to have kids before they get married. What's your opinion on this? Do you think waiting until marriage gives the kids a better chance for a stable home life, or does it even matter since 50% of couples end up divorced anyways?

As a rule of thumb, I think they should be married since usually life will be more stable and committed for the child. However, by that same token, marriage isn't just a magical solution that you can rush into and expect everything to work out. There is such a thing as divorce. Marriage derives it benefit from the fact that the people were already more serious with each other and ready to take it to the next step. So in other words, whatever you do, it should not be entered lightly.1

The most important is to have a stable home. A marriage doesn't make much difference. Divorce is too easy for it to matters. What matters is to be committed to each other.
