Dump immediately. I deal with one deadbeat already, don't need another.

I find deadbeats tend to have similar personalities. They make excuses, blame everyone else for their own shortcomings, and never accept personal responsibility. Those are things I can't live with at all.

Dating - break it off, don't look back.
Married - DON'T have kids with him!!!!!!!!!! Work hard for their side, their just kids.

Would you see him the same when you found out?

I was 18 when I became pregnant. I had to have an emergency c-section and I was already scared out of my mind. The entire time I was in the hospital he was at the casino and also on drugs.

Regrettably, I didn't immediately leave as I was pretty stupid and immature. I wanted to but never did until I got pregnant again by him when my daughter was only 3 months old..

He was never there, sold drugs... My apt was robbed while I was pregnant. I was held at gunpoint... Anyway, all of that and then some, led me to finally leave.
