Question: Should they stay together??
Total Votes: 15
sooo...my BFF is 18 and pregant. I very much dislike her boyfriend but that's not my concern. We've known each other our whole lives, since diapers. Well, i talked to her yesterday; her man is going to Corpus Christi to work on the oil rigs. He's from CC. He went there a 1 1/2 months ago for a week,came back and she found out he was talking to some girl there. Then she finds out 2 weeks later that shes preggers....well she talked it over with him, explained that since they're having a baby now, he needs to get his priorities in line; he's 20, a tattoo artist and a football player. He says he wants to go to CC to work and save money plus oil rigs pay well. She decided she's going to break up with him for the time he's gone, he leaves thursday and won't be back until february. She said its because she doesn't need the added stress of wondering what he's doing because she's pregnant and doesn't want to hurt the baby. I told her i was glad she was thinking about the baby but i talked to my husband about it last night and he says its a copout. Breaking up with him won't lessen her stress. It will heighten it because she just gave him permission to sleep with other women in a sense. I explained to her today my husbands logic and its making her rethink her decision. I don't know what else to tell her. He wants to work and save money. He's giving up his dream of football (he just passed tryouts) to work and support her and their baby. I think they should stay together because i did the same thing when my husband had to leave for 4 months and i regretted it sooo much. I've never seen her so happy. she loves him and thats clear but i feel like shes going to hurt sooo much when he leaves. Advice?
