Punishment for sin?

What do you think, does God punish us for sinning?

If he does, wouldn´t a punishment for being sexually active before marriage be getting pregnant? I know not everyone one believes that being sexually active is a sin, but that´s another topic. Call me old fashioned if you like.

For example: my brother in law got his girlfriend pregnant, so they´re going to get married. They´re very young, don´t have a penny to their name, and she´s not even working! This is a consequence they´ll have to live with for the rest of their lives.

But when it´s born, how can people go and say: it´s such a miracle and blessing? If God blesses our sin, wouldn´t we be better off sinning?

I realize that for some people, having a baby is the best thing that can happen to them in the world. But sometimes at a certain point in a person´s life, it´s just plain stupid.

My questions:

1.Does God punish sin?
2.Is getting pregnant a punishment?

Thanks for your input.
