Here's how you deal with it.

1) Get a job.
2) Assure her that you will support her decision, whatever that is.
3) Do everything you can to support her, whether that's being there for her or marrying her (depending on her and her family). Whatever. Be there when it's tough and when it's easy.


You might have a kid. Or at the least, have to make an adult decision about a kid-to-be. So, grow up, be responsible, and deal with it.

Edit:
Btw...congrats, man!

Just realize that, just because your girlfriend is pregnant, it does NOT mean you have to get married.

Sex before marriage? What a naughty boy we've been.

Seriously, have some common sense. Telling your parents that your GF is pregnant with your child and that they're going to become grandparents isn't an appropriate time to attempt any 'tricks'. Tell it to them straight and honest. Openly accept responsibility.

Most she can take out of him is 17% if they don't get married, if he does get married she can take 50%.

Also, getting married because you have a kid on its way is an awful reason to get married.

Agreed.

I'm not saying they have to get married. Only they can decide that. If it is the best for both of them, great. If not, great.

Yes...and? Who says they'd get divorced?

Why is that your first thought? Don't be so negative, man.

What if TS and his girl actually love each other? Because loving each other is a pretty good reason to get married.

And, see what I mentioned above.

Assuming they do love each other, then fine, but it wouldn't be the first time someone felt pressured into getting married because of a child on the way. Having a child is a huge commitment on its own, I wouldn't want a volatile contract on top of that.

Good post, man. Good post.

One you need support her. She is going need someone to compassionate and lead her thought this. Second you need start learning about how to be a father. Ever child needs a leader in life to guide them.

There is not going be a easy way to tell you family. You are just going have to do it.

I understand sam. Your parents probably had a wonderful marriage, no fighting, no getting the cops called, no arrests, no accusations. Mine didn't.

Actually, no. My parents had a few shit moments, really. (Everyone does.)

But just because your parents (and you) had a rough time doesn't mean that, on the assumption TS and his girl love each other and decide to get married, they're going to get divorced. You may not like the idea of marriage (I can't say I blame you), but you shouldn't project your dislike of marriage onto other people by bringing up divorce as the first thing.

I actually have parents that are divorced. However I feel most marriage can be healed by both parties willing work on it. I agree that family thrive when the father and mother are together. However I also understand there are horrible situations where it can not happen, but I feel like a normal situation where two are willing work on it and love each other a marriage thrive.

Edit: I will say this that marriage does not fix a relationship. Just because they are having kid may not mean they should get married. I recommend it, however if I knew more details I may not. However if is a healthy relationship, it would be great move from this point.

Sam, you disagree with me in such a likeable way it's hard to combat you. I'm not totally against the idea of marriage, but I am totally against it if your only reason for getting married is a child.

I mean statistically, it's 50/50 he'll get divorced. Probably higher since he's young and it's because of a pregnancy. Get real yo

Way to fail at statistics.

Whether or not that statistic is accurate, it still says that one half of marriages end in divorce, not that every marriage has a one half chance of succeeding. That's not how statistics work.

Actually 50/50 is a myth, the rate of divorce is lower then that. There actually been studies on it. It's actually more like 20 to 25%.
