I moved in with my 24 year old boyfriend of a year about three months ago,&together we decided that we wanted to have a baby. So I stopped taking my birth control&was getting ready to get pregnant&whatnot. So, I went 2 weeks without taking my birth control&then my boyfriend changed his mind. Before I found out for sure (he still doesn't know that I officially am), he said that if I am pregnant, he wants me to get rid of it. He says he's not ready to have a baby, and that he doesn't want to deal with all the extra stress that will come with it, and that he'll resent it if we do have it.. Although I agree that it probably isn't the best time&that it'll be hard, I also think we put ourselves in this situation&that we need to take responsibility for it. He has a good job&we're financially stable, so it's not like we wouldn't be able to afford a baby.
But on top of everything, I want this baby. Plain&simple.
I just don't know how to tell him that.
What should I do?
In the state in which we live, the age of consent is 16 with a 10 year age gap. He's 8 years older than me, so nothing we're doing is illegal.
