An experience from an old friend is quite relevant to this thread, he was an old mate from high school who got a girl pregnant when he was 19, he was
wearing a dom but it broke. He told her it broke and that she should get the morning after pill, he even paid for it because she couldn't afford it
but she spent the money on something else and never took it.
Two months later he found out about it and insisted that she get an abortion, that they were too young and he wanted to get an education and travel
before having kids. They had a big fight about it which ended the relationship.
She kept the baby and now he has to pay her child support. She does not work, got the baby bonus as well as a chunk of his paycheck every week. (Don't
know if you have baby bonus in America, its basically a payment for having a kid) So she's basically a bludger, getting a free ride off the back of
his hard work, and the taxpayers.
He had trouble affording the child support as he was trying to save up so he could go to university because it's hard to work full time while studying
full time, rent is expensive in Australia and he didn't qualify for assistance. Last I saw him at the reunion and he never ended up getting his
degree, he just works in crowd control now (like a bouncer).
I can't stand the way this girls decision practically ruined my friends life, I hate her for it, he could have a degree and a house by now.
people gotta pay for the kid, then two
people should be making the decision.
