Not ready for a baby

I’m 20 and have been in a relationship for two years. My boyfriend’s already demanding a child and when I tell him it’s too early for me to have one, he threatens me to go off and make a baby with another girl. I’m confused and really need a solution


Sis Dolly answers:

If you’re not ready to have children, then don’t. If your boyfriend really loves you and wants to be with you he’ll respect that and hear that you’re saying “not yet”.

The fact that he’s so willing to find another woman to have a baby with tells me he’s looking for a baby-maker and not a partner in a relationship. Don’t allow yourself to be manipulated and threatened into something you’re not ready for.

If he’s threatening to find another woman then I don’t think he’s committed in the long term. I’d be concerned about whether he’ll be around to support you and the baby he’s so adamant you have.
