Star Tell Me Pastor


Wolf in sheep's clothing
Dear Pastor,

When I was 24 years old, I met a man and we started a relationship. My former boyfriend and I had just broken up. And this guy told me that he was having problems with his girlfriend. We used to talk for hours and I used to tell him everything about myself, then we started to sleep together. One month after we started to sleep together, I missed my period. And when I told him, he said that he doesn't want any more children because he has three already. And that was the first time he told me that he has three children and that he was living with their mother.

Pastor, this man lied to me when I first met him and he said that his girlfriend and himself were not getting along and they are about to break up. Now, I am three months pregnant and I hardly see him. I have to be lying to my mother about the father.

Pastor, I do not have luck with men. I do not know what to do.


Dear M.F.,

I can tell you what to do. Have your baby. Don't terminate the pregnancy. And if after giving birth you do not want to keep the baby, give him/her up for adoption. If you decide to keep the baby after you have given birth and the father refuses to support him, take him to court. Don't be reluctant or ashamed to do so. And don't allow anyone to discourage you from doing what is right.
