im 18, and me and my boyfriend of almost 3 years (whom i know, and trust me when i say this- "KNOW" we will be together forever) have decided to start trying to have a baby. we are sooo excited, but of course are having some negative thoughts. the whole "financial/insurance/yada yada stuff" is kind of a killjoy on the whole idea. my girlfriend knows of an insurance i can gain being a single parent, so im not so much worried about that, just the financial stability in a whole. and me and him live at home with my father, which isn't so bad considering neither one of us pays rent, but im not thrilled of the idea of raising my baby in my parents house. we wOuld move out, but just dont have enough money. bUt, my best friend is 21 with 3 kids already, and honestly tells me all the time that its not as expensive to have a baby as some people may percieve. and come on, she has three! is this the case for anyone else?? i mean, me and my boyfriend both have jobs, and he'll have benefits soon at his new job, but we don't plan on getting married any time soon. and the whole "college" thing, im definately not worried about right now. i figure, i dont even know what i want to do as a career, so i have my whole life to go back to college. so is it really so expensive to have a baby? and is it so bad to raise my child in my parents house??Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
