So I am 23 years old, been with my boyfriend for over a year now and I just found out I am pregnant. I am still in college finishing up my undergrad. He is a full time farmer and I also help at his family farm while in school. We live together and alot of times it seems like we are married but we have also been having issues with arguing and now with this pregnancy stuff we dont see eye to eye. I want to keep the child. I do think I can do this, I am healthy, in good shape, well organized and have a job lined up for after my graduation. He also works/ owns a farm thats very successful for money is not our big issues. He thinks " we are to young" and that we arent ready for it and it would be better to have it be adopted. Its hard, if our relationship was a little bit more stable maybe he would feel otherwise? I dont know how I could manage having the kid without him and what to expect. All my family lives at least 5 hours from where I live now and I dont really have a different place to go if things did go south. I am looking for advice, how do I stop with the argueing? alot of times it get mad because he isnt the most considerate and can be "jokingly mean". I dont handle stress the best so maybe thats why we argue? I am also really scared about this too.I have never had a kid, I didnt plan on this and I dont know how to really prepare. I look at books but there are just to many. If anyone has some insight i would love to hear!
