I am an almost 22 year old college student. I was dating a 28 year old when I got pregnant. We are both Christians. The main question when I started to let people know that I was pregnant was, "Well, are you getting married?" My answer was NO. Marriage is supposed to be a sacred union between two people that love each other and are going to spend the rest of their lives together...not two people who decide to come together because they have a child together. To me, that's a horrible reason to get married.
I believe that everything happens for a reason and God does not make mistakes, so there is a divine purpose for my baby's life. In the word it says that God will never leave us, nor will He forsake us. (God's got me and my baby) However, I also know that I am going to be judged, mostly by church people, because I am an unwed mother. How do I combat that in a Godly way? What I want to say to most of the people is that they have no room to talk because they are having, or had unwed sex, or sex outside of their marriage, and that they are no different from me. I just hate being looked down upon, especially for something that is so common, even in the church.
