| | Marrying because of pregnancy?
My best friend, who may as well be my sister is pregnant. The father is a ne'er do well who has a criminal record and cannot get a decent job because of it. He works part time and is collecting welfare. He also has another child that he does not look after because he can't afford to. He sponges off of my sister! Grrr! I no longer express concern and love for her poor choices. She choose these losers because she grew up in the ghetto. It's her life; I can only love her for who she is.
He's been talking about marriage since she has become pregnant. Which brings me to my question: Is it a good idea to get married because of pregnancy?
I think it's a horrible idea. Marriage should come from love and wanting to build a life together, not out of obligation and feeling trapped. I've seen many dutiful marriages fall apart, because the people didn't really want to be husband and wife.
Looking forward to reading the intelligent and thoughtful posts that brings me to this forum.
