^ And if it's not the age gap people are at a doozy about but claiming its a no no to be a parent at 19....why? He's an adult and so is she. If they are making this comitment to be together, they have the right to comitt to a child while they can. She's getting older and it wont be wise to really wait until they settle into their marriage and to what people would feel is a good buffer of married time to try to get pregnant or a proper age for him. Life shouldnt be about these assumed appropriate times/ages for things. Who gives a f***? People should do things when they need to.
Also, There's a big defining change in a persons life between lets say 12 years old and 19 even though it's only 7 years of change. That's when people become adults and being in the industry you're more adult than the average your age. Not to say every 19 year old should have a baby as some are not at that level of maturity and commitment. I'm 21 and I am not at that point of commitment but feel if it happens I am mature enough to become committed fully to my new life as a mom. just because I am not ready doesn't mean another person younger than me cannot be. My friend just turned 19 and had a planned pregnancy....few months down the line now and she's a terrific mom and very content. This is where she felt her life is supposed to be. More power to her. It's the same thing as our friends pursuing college- they're just molding the lives that they want and one shouldn't be acceptable and one not.
I would say it's a bad idea if at any age(yeah more often than not it's teenagers) that can't afford to provide everything for this child or have the full time commitment willing to put aside many "fun" things of your own to give this kid attention and love. It's a bad idea to start something without having the right tools fundamental for this persuit to thrive.
If its the age gap, yeah theres a double standard, but even so age isn't a thing that carries the most weight in compatibility. Yeah some people are comfortable in their age range but thats them and not everyone should fit a mold. I don't and I don't think it's anyones business to tell me to fit an ideal as it has nothing to do with them. It's funny to still think that my partner in life was a senior in highschool, had a car, had a girlfriend and worked at MGM Grand Hotels arcade while I was a little 2nd grader who played at that arcade and was too young to not be supervised by my mom while playing. Who gives a f***? It's not like he tried to score a date then-
would've been wrong. I'm an adult now and found ourselves to be an ideal fit. It's a beautiful life we lead and if romance, if finding our "soulmates" "the one" is this big dream for a majority of the world and a big deal to attain....when someone has that it is to be celebrated.
I think this is BEAUTIFUL and I hope everything will be fine with mother and child as this is a risky pregnancy.
Life is too short to be living in a mold. Life is too short to live it judgingly.
Sorry I'm on so a rant but I just dont get when people judge things into a ideal. It has nothing to do with us and doesnt affect us how someone lives their life.
