  • Yep. Although I knew a girl at my alternative school for teen moms that was 14 and was pregnant because her and her soon to be spouse planned the pregnancy!

  • Yes and no. For a 17 year old who has not finished school and is not in a marriage (or at least in a long term relationship where she does not live with her parents), yes it is disturbing. On the other hand, my mil got married at 16 and a year later at 17 had my husband. So, I am grateful for that. Of course, my mil was a bit more mature than the 17 year old who is on here and keeps making multiple accounts and then calls everyone fucking stupid and bad mothers.

  • I do find that really disturbing. But you have to know that I am a MUCH older woman with adult kids and grandkids born within marriages and I have really strict moral and social standards. I believe that sex and love belong together within a committed relationship, leading to marriage and that children should be planned after marriage.
    So, that's why I find a 17 year old trying to conceive to be disturbing ....and a really bad idea.

Whether it is to keep a guy (which never works in the end really), or to have someone who loves them unconditionally, or just because all their friends are or whatever else goes through a 17 yr old's head that is purposely trying to get pregnant there is never a good reason to get pregnant that young. At that age , getting a good education should be top priority so that when she IS ready to have a baby (maturity wise and emotionally) she will have the education and means to take care of the baby with or without the father's financial help. I am in no way saying a 17 yr old can't be a good mother, I just can't think of why a 17 yr old would want to have a baby at that young of an age on purpose. I had my oldest child at the age of 22 and I love all 4 of my kids with all of my soul but I th
