How do you support your partner through an unplanned pregnancy?
Surprise! You’re going to be a father. No, you weren’t expecting it but that is the situation that you now find yourself in. The mother of your child is undoubtedly going through an emotional roller coaster. Cupid is here with some advice for how you can support her.
1. Rise to the challenge: Whatever your plans used to be, the fact is that now you’re going to be a father. Your partner is probably scared and it’s going to be a great comfort to her to know that you’re going to be there for her.
2. Don’t jump into marriage: There is a difference between being there for your partner and marrying her. Just because you are obligated to be a part of your child’s life, does not mean that it’s necessarily a good idea to get married to the mother.
3. Get excited: Celebrate the fact that you’re going to be a parent! With all the uncertainty that your partner is feeling, it will be very reassuring for her to see that you are excited to be a father.
