I was told multiple times by her family that having a child would help fix our marriage. “You’ll both be focused on the kid , it’ll help you bond.” When I explained that I didn’t want to bring a child into an unstable environment based on a gamble, the prevailing thought was that I was being selfish. Unreal.

“Just get pregnant and marry him. He will have to stop cheating if you do” God am I glad I didnt listen to that.
Many years ago my mother told my two younger sisters who were 13 and 15 at the time to get pregnant asap to any boy their own age so they could get a benefit and child support for the next 18 years, her reasoning was that the boys parents would make extra hush payments to keep it quiet and her daughter’s would be able to be like her jobless and paid by the state to stay at home doing nothing….
