Teens Only Ask a Question Parents Resources


  Hi, I've been dating this guy for just over a year and I love him more than anything in the world, but my family is supposed to be moving around June and I don't know if he'll be able to come with us. I love him deeply and we want to get married. But if he can't come we donít know what will happen to our relationship. I suggested that if we find that he can't come under normal circumstances. Maybe he'd be able to come if I happened to be pregnant? Iím pretty sure I already know what everyone will say, but Iím just confused and want some advice and opinions! I feel like I am mature enough to handle being a parent, but I'm still in school and living with my parents plus Iím only 15 (almost 16). But what other options would I have? I can't lose him, he is my true love. I need to be with him cause that is who I want to spend the rest of my life with. What do you think I should do? What would you do?

Dear Kelly,

A mature (and wise) person is a patient person. If you are patient, then you can wait a few years before being able to be on your own and able to live where you would like to with your "true love."

Babies do not, and will not solve your problem - they never do. It sounds as though you are thinking that the purpose of a baby is to put you together with your "true love," which is selfish and certainly not the best reason to bring another life into the world.
