Did your boyfriend stay with you? (Page 1)

Stereotypically it seems in many teenage pregnancy cases the boyfriend runs.
What about you? did your boyfriend run? stay with you both? be there for the baby but didn't stay in a relationship with you?

Me and Dom are still together. It's been very hard especially with me having post natal depression but we're getting through it. I could ask for more from him

With my first pregnancy he darted after saying it was not his and I left the state.

With my next 3 pregnancies my boyfriend (now husband) did not run.

Suzy, the point is that many younger BOYS run away. whether or not the relationship stands at least the ADULT men pay for their children and help to support them. Just because a couple breaks up does not mean that the man gets to run away from his responsibilities.

my dad has not payed one cent in child support to my mom. ever
my uncle has not payed one cent of child support to my aunt. ever.
my best friends dad has not payed one single cent or ever even CALLEd her since they got divorced. ever

when kristen was born travis had to sign a AOP document at the hospital that stated since we are common law married AND he understand and claims krissy that if ANYTHING ever happened he could not 1.)demand a DNA test and "claim" shes nto his (like some people do) 2.) get away with not paying child support. because i could STILL get child support from him.
does it mean just because someone will be oredered to pay for child support or told they should still contribute to thier children that they will? no, not always

im not saying that many younger boys dont run away, because i believe that 100%
at the hospital the social service lady said she doesnt see to many teen mothers with thier boyfriends/child father or ever thier OWN PARENTS there to support them.
no one should ever run away from thier responsabilities. weather they are married or not. no mom or dad should ever get away with it. unfortunately it happens all too much. married or not

Yes, but it is much more common for younger boys to run away. In most cases the husband does support the child after a marriage has been dissolved. My brother had a baby when he was a teen. he does not pay anything and has not seen her in years. My uncle paid for both his son and his step-daughter after his dovorce. See the difference?

I can see that quite commonly you use your life as a standard. Using facts and information from a more general population and not such a small selection tends to result in a more widely accepted and truthful post.

Nope. We were going to get jobs and move out and get married because we were in LOVE DAMMIT!

That lasted until I got "fat and !**@!" (soo... a few weeks, I suppose).

stay with you both? ?


Nope. He transferred schools when I was a few weeks pregnant and I haven't seen him since. He wouldn't know my daughter if she walked up and smacked him in the face (and she's going through a phase right now that makes that entirely possible).

Nope. If you see him you should tell him he owes my daughter some money! Laughing

In all seriousness. We were so young and it was sooo unplanned that both Lady and I are much better off without him. If he sought me out in a few years and demanded to be part of her life I'm not entirely sure I'd even let him (unless, of course my daughter wanted to know him).

He was a big mistake.

I would never sue for child support because I doubt he makes enough money to make it worth having him in our lives. However, I do sincerely hope that one day when my daughter is an adult she sues him for 18 years of back child support and uses the money to go to university.

He's 19, she'll be 18 soon if not already....

i'm pretty sure she HATES me 1) because he cheated on her with me and 2) because he's having a baby with me.

He's in college and She graduates HS in May.
