Well you can only hope for the best. Sometimes younger people turn around and become great parents. Hopefully it will be a wake up call.

If not, try to be the best and supportive aunt you can be to this baby coming. They didn’t ask to be in this world so it’s sad to see them suffer. And be there for your bro. Sometimes there is something deeper to why he is acting this way. Good luck

Eeek. This is going to be a hard situation. As angry as you may be at his actions, now he and her need support. And need to think about their options.

I got pregnant at 21 and was scared to death. Seven years later, we’re good but it was the support of my family that help me and my little one through it all

I’m sorry you’re going through this.  My Brother-In-Law got his Girlfriend pregnant when they were both 17.  They are now 20 and married with a 2 year old.  Life isn’t easy for them (too many problems to list), but at least their trying.  Providing support to them is probably the best option.  The child (if she carries to term) shouldn’t be held responsible for the irresponsibility of the parents.

@xshellx2003: Im sorry. There was this girl I used to go to college with who would sleep with random strangers, get pregnant  and then get an abortion. I am talking over 10 times. All I could think about was all the people who are trying to have babies and couldn’t.

So all I can say is life really isnt fair sometimes but (I know people hate hearing this) but I beleive everything happens for a reason. Hopefully you guys will have luck in the near future. I’ll send some baby making vibes your way.

@tranquility: Aaah, okay. Thanks!

@xshellx2003: I’m sorry to hear about this situation. It does seem unfair when things happen that way.

@xshellx2003: I’m sorry for you difficulties conceiving. I used to wonder why I was chosen to have a child when others were having a difficult time. I wish you all the best in the future.

I feel like my daughter was chosen for me and that yes, it did happen for a reason. Maybe your brother and “his friend” needed this child.

I am sure a lot of what you are feeling is sadness that you are having difficulty conceiving. I am sorry, I bet that is so difficult 🙁

But, I really think you should try and be supportive to them. People make mistakes when they are younger and then look back on it and wonder what the heck was wrong with them. I was raped when I was 17 and I probably wouldn’t have ever been put in that situation if I hadn’t made stupid decisions. I got pregnant from the rape and here I am now with my husband (who was my bf of 3 months when my daughter was born) and my daughter is almost 3. She was my saving grace, you should give your brother a chance, he may want to change some of his behaviors. They need people who can be supportive and if you can’t do that maybe you should just take a step away from them for a little while so you can sort out your feelings.

Well, it sounds like your brother at least has a good attitude about it and hopefully it will help him do some important growing up. He is young, so this will be a huge wakeup call especially since he wasn’t on the path to becoming a father. Who knows, maybe you will become an AWB (aunt with benefits) meaning you watch the child more than a regular aunt since they will need a lot of help?

You shouldn’t have picked him to be in the wedding.
