Marilyn T.
So many obstacles to overcome

I am 21 years old, pregnant with my first child, and unmarried. I recently informed my family of my current situation, and now they won't speak to me.

I am involved in a serious relationship, and my boyfriend is nothing but loving and supportive. But, we are not married yet, and I just found out that I am pregnant. Now I find that after telling our families - they are completely broken up over it and even went so far as to suggest adoption and abortion. My boyfriend and I do not believe in abortion and will not give away our baby, and we intend to raise this child in a loving home. But along with this decision comes many problems, including financial problems and the fact that we don't have a home to live together in. I really don't want to get married in a rush just because I am pregnant - but many people seem to think I should. Should we give into our families or just head out on our own? I want to believe everything will turn out for the best in the end, but with no conversation between our parents, it seems to be a lifetime away. Please offer any suggestions. Thankyou.
