This is why I think that even if you plan for everything things can still change in your marriage and you have to be able to (and willing to) adapt. At the point that a child came into the pix, hub could have said 'I didn't sign up for this so I'm out.'

eta: so no one ask what I would have done if shoe was on other foot. lol
Noooooooooooooooooooo,CryCry
I love planning.

Man, probably  but that definitely would put a strain on the relationship. No way I'm in my 30's in a relationship (wanting to get married) for three years and not wifed up. Ain't nobody got time for thatCry


I don't see the timeline being that bad....more people should court for a few years.....you don't know a person until that third year......a friend of mine is getting married a month after her one anniversary.....I hope they make it but.....thats just seems too fast to me.....Sleepy

I don't think it will TBH....even if he has his cousin....he will still want his own.....and will the state give him financial assistance?

Im not sure...could try to get child support but doubt it would be enough. Im sure he would be willing to still have the kid but she may not think its financially possible. She may fear that she'll be forced into a position shes not ready for. I just feel there are other issues going on in this relationship.



But at least this isnt as bad as the thread about bringing in 5 kids


Eta- if this is something he wants to do and its that important to him he should just do it and not make the choice hers to make. Theyre not married but they seem to be playing house..

My first thoughts about this is how does she actully feel about this?  I mean, personally I wouldn't want a man with a child because that would make me question his morals an values (i.e how he felt about divorc/ sex out of marriage, etc)  so that TO ME would make this a different situation.

this..im sure she'll be involved if he gets the kid. Not everyone is ready for PTA meetings, leaving work in a rush to pick him up from school, packing lunches, etc...

and we can't say that his decision to want to get the child is not based on the notion that he'll have her help.

I would support my man in this situation, but would completely understand if she decided to leave.

Yes i would stay, <font size="5" color="#ff0000">she's selfish if she'd end her 3+ year relationship because her man wants to be a decent MAN and take care of his FAMILY, IF she leaves, then he's better off without her. This kid isn't some baby he made on the side, or some random child dropped on their doorstep by a junkie.


I think that is where most people go wrong. People shame people into situations that people aren't really comfortable with. 

And we don't know if that kid isn't from a junkie's house because his families rap sheet ain't so great. Man raising a child especially one that isn't your is a great responsibility. He comes in with all the teachings and ba ge from his family. 


I didn't say the little boy wasn't the child of a junkie, i meant literally left on the doorstep by some random unknown junkie.
