My son was born 6 days before my 20th birthday. I was living with my boyfriend for a few months and have been on birth control since I was 16. Somehow, I got pregnant but we weren't that worried because we have decent paying jobs and my boyfriend's grandfather said we could stay with him so we could save even more money and move out on our own. I was totally unprepared for the way older moms would react to us! When I take my son in for a doctor's appointment, they practically shun me! You would not believe the number of times I have watched their eyes shoot to my left ring finger to see if I'm married! My son is always dressed and clean. He's a normal 9 month old but these women act like I have no idea of what I'm doing, just because I'm young! And they treat my now-husband even worse!

Yeah people are really dumb. I have been married for 3 years, but since I had my son, I don't wear my ring that much. Just because I'm always washing dishes and what not and when I was pregnant my finger swelled so it didn't fit. So how do people know you aren't married? Don't let it get to you though, your a good mom, your son is happy and that is all that matters. So hold your head high and look down on them for being so miserable, that they have to treat you poorly so they feel better.
