I am nineteen years old and just found out that I am pregnant. My boyfriend and I have been going together for two years but weren’t planning to get married until we saved up money for a down payment on a house. He says he’s not ready to get married yet and wants me to have an abortion. He is putting pressure on me by saying that he will break up with me if I decide to have this baby, I really do not want to have an abortion. This is already a baby to me. How can I convince my boyfriend that he needs to marry me so I can have this baby?
You really can’t make your boyfriend do anything. If he really loves you he won’t abandon you and your baby. It sounds like he is trying to pressure you into doing what he thinks is best. You are already committed to having this baby regardless of the consequences. It will hurt a lot if he decides to break up with you. Maybe he is showing you that he is not the kind of person that you could have a life with. Would he take his love away every time he disagreed with you? I hope you can work this out with him.
