I know that my son has been dating his girlfriend for three years now and that doesn’t impose a problem to me and our family. In fact, we approve of the girl. She’s actually really sweet and I can see how much she loves my son and how much my son has changed since she came into his life. He does not go out and party like he used to before and he has his grades improved. However, he has been acting strange lately and I have had a foreign feeling that something is wrong. My suspicion got even stronger when he asked to talk with the family one night while having dinner with his girlfriend. Right then, I knew something was up and I was hoping that I am wrong. When dinner was done, he announced that his girlfriend is already a month pregnant. My wife almost fainted. We both don’t know what to do in this situation. They’re still kids and they still have to go to school. I don’t know how they can pull this off when in fact, the girl is only 17 years old.

Sorry to hear this @worrieddavid40 and it is certainly normal to be worried and concerned in this situation.

Give yourself some time to think over this and breathe.

Did they mention anything else regarding the pregnancy? Do they plan to keep it and pursue the pregnancy?

What would you like them to do? I wouldn't make any decisions right now, give it a think and then speak to him. You don't want to say anything you'll regret!

In a situation like this he needs to understand that everything needs to be taken into account: their education, families financial situation, where they are currently in their lives and the fact that sometimes, relationships aren't meant to be and it can go wrong. He's fallen in love for the first time bless him, he doesn't know any different, he thinks that this relationship is superb - but is it sustainable? Things to think about.

The girl wants to keep the baby and my wife too. It is very disappointing for us, however, my wife doesn't want our son to run from his responsibilities. Anyway, we haven't talk with the girl's parents yet but we will do so as soon as possible. We will sort things out with them. Thanks!

Hey, this is good that your wife and you are supporting the girl and taking up the responsibility but make sure your son is also ready for this step.
