Pregnant Woman

by Brenda
(South Africa)

I've dated my partner for 3 months, then got pregnant. After that he lost his job, was arrested came out of jail, seemed to be lost in life, no longer spends time or shows interest in the relationship.

What should I do?

Make your baby your #1 priority. If he wants to be there he will. If he doesn't then it's his loss. Or talk to him and tell him he needs to wake up.

Brenda, you already KNOW what you should do . . . move on without him.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
