Star Tell Me Pastor


Seven months in and he wants a child

Dear Pastor,

I am 27 and have been in a relationship with a guy who is 32 for the past seven months. I am attending school, but he is bothering me about having a baby by him. I have one daughter and I am not ready for another child. But he says that he wants me to have one for him and I can still attend school while I am pregnant. Please give me some advice.

Unnamed, Kingston

Dear Unnamed,

Seven months is not enough time to get to know a man. This man is 32. If he wants to have a child, he should give you more time to get to know him and marry you. He should not be pressuring you to get pregnant.

Frankly, you would be doing yourself a favour to end the relationship with him. He wants to tie you down. Tell him to get lost. You will get a better man. He is too selfish. If he is helping you financially, tell him to keep his money. Find a job and go to school in the evening. Watch this man. If you continue to have sex with him, he may punch a hole in the condom or slip it off and get you pregnant.
