Should I have a baby to prove I love him?


Dear MizzB

My boyfriend wants us to have a child and I feel like I am not ready.

  • We don’t see eye to eye because he thinks I don’t love him but I do. Would having a baby prove that I love him? Sistas

Dear Sistas

Love does not involve manipulation and tricks.

Having a baby is a long-term decision and should not be made to please anyone.

Don’t fall pregnant to prove your love to your man. A child’s usually the mother’s responsibility and that means you need to be emotionally, financially and physically ready to carry and raise the baby. Learn to stand your ground and make a decision you can handle.
