unacceptable truth

September 23, 2009 11:40pm CST
my friend's sister got pregnant by her present boyfriend. my friend's parents cannot accept of what happened to their daughter. her mother almost cried everyday. because she got pregnant they planned to get married but my friend was not so happy about it. we advised to accept the situation because it is already there. they cannot do anything but merely just to accept. anyway her sister is old enough to get married. she is 27.

Well I don't think marriage is always the right path to take. I mean, if they aren't ready to get married, they aren't ready. Sure, the sister needs to take responsibility for her actions, as well as the newfound father, but it doesnt nescarily mean marriage is the right way to go.

She's old enough to decide on her own. She knows the consequences of it I think her mother needs to understand and support her know. I know mother always the first person going to be hurt if her daughter going to get pregnant out of the wedlock. Sometimes mother's know best but sometimes you need to decide for yourselves.

If she's not happy to be married then she should not get married. I dont think that being pregnant is a reasson to get married. She should decide once and for all before it's too late. She might regret it in the long run. If i were her friend i would tell her to continue the pregnancy but if she is not so sure to get married then she should not.

it is the usual thing to happen here. if the girl gets pregnant, the girl's parents would like the boyfriend to "save" her reputation by marrying the girl. a lot of situations like this happened in the past. there are occasions though that a marriage won't prosper because of so many considerations and the parties feel that living separately would be better than being married. let both parties (the sweethears) decide what to do with the situation. the parents of both sides should also show support and whatever decision the sweethears want, the parents will just have to support it. after all, the sweethears themselves are the ones living their lives for the future. they should be responsible for whatever actions they have done.

I think they should to. They're already adult and can bear the responsibility on their own. Whether they like it or not, things already happen and there's a baby on the way. If they wait too long, the baby will be born and things will be more complicated. I do feel sorry for the family though, they must be really stress right now.
