Do you believe some women "trap" guys by having babies?

I think this happens way more than we want to admit! My sister has had a few "unplanned" pregnancies, all out of wedlock and NOT one of the guys married her, as she had hoped for.

What do you think? I think "oops's" are rarely for real...usually planned if you KWIM...

  • I disagree... I think usually it really is an oops. But I do think it happens.

  • It does happen even married women do it
    Ive heard some married women stopping their Birthc ontrol to get another baby when their husband wasnt ready

    I have heard of so many people getting pregnant thinking that the guy will stay with them
    It is sad .
    I hope my daughter will grow up knowing she doesnt have to use her body to try to get a man .,

  • Of course it happens. Parenthood is a lot of work, I don't understand why someone would choose to "trap" someone that doesn't want to be there......Get married, then decide on bringing a new life into this world

  • My DH's ex wife did it. She went off birth control without him knowing. After she got pregnant they got married. She later told a friend that in turn told my DH that ex said she had gotten pregnant on purpose bc she did not want to work and if she had a kid DH would marry her and let her stay home. DH's ex ended up cheating and he left her. So yes it does happen-as SICK as it is.

  • I know of several women who I'm pretty sure did this. One in particular, he did marry her. She never admitted to getting pregnant on purpose but i'm pretty sure she did. I know she did with their second child. The women who do this crap rarely get the result they want though.

  • I had an oops before marriage. I didn't marry the dad, it was an oops, not a ruin my life. I love my son. I have an amazing husband who has adopted my son, and we have 5 other kids together. Not all people who get married out of wedlock are trying to trap.
