First off, kudos to you for stepping up, taking responsibility and welcoming this blessing into your life. All too often children are looked as as a burden and not a blessing. Sorry you're having to deal with this. I agree with the other ladies in terms of nothing wrong with asking for child support. He fully knew he was having unprotected sex, a child has been conceived. There are consequences to actions, its not a punishment, its a consequence. Sadly men that pressure woman to have an abortion (because they dont want to have to live with the consequences of free sex) dont have to live with those consequences of this action either. Woman should not be put in this situation.
My father took off when I was 16 and left my mom hanging with three kids. My brothers and I had to pitch in and help. Then he fathered two other children, with two other woman. The first he didn't pay child support on. The second he decided to deny the kid was his to skate out. The youngest is now 17 so now my dad decides the kid is his. Another consequence to bad actions? My dad hasn't seen three of his children in over 20 years and he's never met any of his grandchildren. Now that he's getting older I hear through other family members that he's pretty sad. Men who want to have sex without consequences gross me out, they aren't real men. I dont want to sound like I'm giving a pep talk but you are better off to have learned he has no character now. Douche bag.
