  • No, if you can't afford taking care of your self, why bring a baby into the situation.

    You are obviously young, live your life, have fun and try not to think about raising a family until you have your own place, and identity.

    If you are pregnant now, then you must do what is right for you. I am sure you will have support but it will be really tough. Good luck!!!

  • I would TRY to get pregnant if Iwas married and we had a nice place to live and enough money to provide the basics for the three of us. Otherwise,I wouldn't be having sex at all.

  • Only if you like showing the world you have no common sense. Babies are not toys that can be put aside or don't cost money to raise. If you can't afford to take care of yourself and support yourself why would you add another mouth to feed, diaper and clothe?

  • My sister did that. She had a friend who was pregnant in high school. The friend got an apartment,welfare,etc. Thought it was so cool and grown up. It was only AFTER having a baby did the reality of the situation sink in. Eventually my parents had to raise the grandchild.
    You need to be able to take care of yourself first before you have a baby.

  • Nope! In MY opinion you should be settled and have your own place to live and a way to support yourself before bringing a baby into the world.

  • My husband and I tried, and successed to get pregnant while we lived with his mother. Although we did not live with her because we could not afford to live on our own, we supported ourselves and our children completely, helped pay bills, So, I'd have to answer that it depends on circumstances.
