"oh you're one of those." Are you serious? We can't asume she is going to keep it or get an abortion. I'm giving her an adive on what she can do. Yes she got pregnant, but it's both their faults for getting it. At the same time she is the one who has to go through the time of being pregnant and then the time and money to raise it. It's only fair she ask for child support. Unless she doesn't want him in the child's life at all. Don't be a douche if you don't know anything.
1 - why are you sorry? She pretty much put herself in this predicament when she decided to have sex. I'm sorry for her unborn child and him/her having a crappy father and a mother who thinks her life is over because she isn't emotionally ready to deal with the consequences of her actions...
48- You must be one of those people to think that sex is for making babies and babies only and not for pleasure alone. I would only agree with you of OP was a young teenager. Some people use protection but it fails. Or maybe they didn't use protection. There is a lack of specific details which aren't really needed to make the FML.
Hold up, hold up. I think there is a lot more judging in this post than needs be. All they said was that their bf broke up with them and they found out they are pregnant. No where does it say she is a teenager who can't handle it or anything of that nature. It sucks for sure, but has anyone thought of the possibility that they are perfectly capable of having a child, their bf just broke up with them before she found out? Maybe she is very well off and can totally take care of a child all on her own. Stop judging and making assumptions of things you know nothing about. For all you know, they could turn out to be the best single parent you've ever seen. So slow your horses people.
59 - umm it doesn't matter why he dumped her, he's still the father and should be helping to support the kid. He may not have any problems with having to pay child support. In some ways it's just easier to have child support in place so that a legal agreement of how much he has to pay to help is already in place. There's less drama if they just set it up because then there's no fighting about the whole "well I want much this, but he wants to pay only this much and it's not enough". The court sets it up so that it's income based and they will take it directly out of his checks so that he doesn't have to even try to remember. He needs to do his part, and as unfair as it may sound, making him pay child support IS going to be the easiest route.
if u so badly don't want kids, and you'd be so devastated if you had kids... just don't have sex! it's the only 100% guarantee that you won't get pregnant. I never really got it, how do accidental/unwanted kids happen? there IS a foolproof way to prevent pregnancy... but hey, each to his own
there's no indication that op is upset or even put out that she is going to have a baby. for all we know she is over the moon about it, I think the FML is more to do with her boyfriend breaking up with her on the day she happened to find out she was pregnant, maybe it was good news about the baby, and then he ruined it. either way,whatever decision you make, best of luck.
#25 - thanks for your remark, my English is yet to be practiced. Looking at my comma-ridden comment I wonder how could I put in that much. Probably I have just mirror-translated my thought from Russian, preserving all the commas from the original sentence. Sorry for that. Have to try and think in English more, avoiding the "thinking in Russian+translating" step.
You should force him to pay child support if you decide to keep the child. Of course you will have to prove it is his child. I'm sorry OP.
Definitely not the only thing positive about your day. You got your FML approved!
