First comes baby, then comes marriage? That's certainly the case for many of today's hottest Hollywood couples.

Indeed, everyone from Jessica Simpson to Kourtney and Kim Kardashian are putting family first, opting to have a kid or two before deciding when to actually walk down the aisle, if ever.

Of course, the concept of having babies before marriage isn't entirely foreign. Just look at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who over the years have given birth to and adopted enough kids to fill Noah's Arc -- and they still haven't set an official date (that we know of).

Still, the trend has certainly grown into something relatively common and substantial -- enough to suggest that certain social norms and traditions may ultimately be a thing of the past.

Who else is putting family first, and marriage second?
