Am I more likely to end up being a single parent?

Now that I am pregnant My boyfriend and I tend to argue alot more than we use to. I mean the arguments be over little things and we always make up but its a little scary thinking about the future because I don't want to end up being a single teen parent. Any advice??

  • If you are pregnant and you are a teen and you are unmarried. The chances are that you will end up being a single parent.

  • I hate to agree with PP but I do.

    You are young and you both really have no idea what you are in for. He is probably defensive over being tied down and you are hormonal from the pregnancy.

    I only hope that this was planned otherwise your chances are not real great.

  • Who doesn't argue?? There 's so many things to argue over. I was 19 when My DD was born. My DH was 21. We're still together.. We're Married and we did It! It wasn't easy. But working towards anything good isn't easy!! I wish you all the best. You can do it. You Can have a happy Family! Life is not easy or fair. But you can do anything that you work at! Best of Luck!

  • I got preg when I was 21. My SO was 27. We argued a lot & he ended up leaving me. He wasn't mentally prepared for what he needed to do. He never did do what he needed to do. I ended up leaving him after years of mental & emotional abuse. I felt as though we were teenagers. I am a single mom now & he is still causing me problems. I suggest going to counseling & if that doesn't work I would not hold breath on him changing. It's either shape up or ship out. Your baby and your well being is most important...not getting him to act right. You can't make him. That's going to be his choice. And if he doesn't choose to, your chances for a healthy relationship are going to be very bleak.

  • I know this isn't the answer but............ if you do become a single parent, it doesn't have to be forever. On another note, Single parents raise children everyday. Good luck
