Quoting S+K=R [38 WEEKS!]:" I'm so thankful I don't have to worry about insurance. "


Thankfully my insurance is free through my job, but once the baby gets here it will be $300 to go to a family plan.

Ive yet to see anyone say they had their shit together. Everyone seems to be agreeing with you.

I stated my situation, but not once did I say I do just fine (I said I have a stable relationship and income, but I didn't say I don't struggle). Another girl pretty much said the same as me, so I dunno where you're pulling this from..

Um... only ONE person acted like that. Saying a hundred is a drastic exaggeration. Just saying. Are YOU reading the same thread??

Quoting Rebecca(Adam'sMommy):" I know that many of us on BG truly support teen pregnancy, but where is the line? How young is too young IYO?"


All of those. I think any age where you can't legally rent your own apartment, drive and own your own car, have a full time job and be finished are too young.

Even though, I don't think any of those age's are capable of Financially taking care of a child. It's still possible for then to "take care of a child", Do not forget. 'Back in the day' everyone was considered a MAN or WOMAN at the age of about 13-16 and were 'forced' to marry, which would lead to having children, and having to support them. . . It bothers me how everyone takes age so much into consideration for anything other then the FINANCIAL stability of a child. You can be 25 or 35 and have your first child and STILL NOT BE mentally ready to take care of it. . . Age only falls into play IF ! You can not legally get a job, and are immature about life in general. And basically DO NOT WANT to get your life together to support the child you plan to keep.
