I had three children beginning with my sophomore year in college and managed to both provide for my children and graduate. They only brought joy and happiness and in no way held me or my spouse back. They continue to be the greatest investment of our lives and are now working their way through college. It is a complete lie to believe that you must kill your children in order to reach your goals. What you will find out later in life is that you will look back on your children as your greatest accomplishment, your greatest love, and your fondest memory.
My best advice: bond your family through marriage and make your child the center of your universe. The child now growing inside of your girlfriend is the result of your love for her and her love for you. Every struggle the two of you will face together will only make your union stronger and your marriage more resilient. I have been married for over twenty years and I credit that to the experiences we both shared raising our children, working long hours, and simultaneously attending college full time. Hardship forges strength of character and allows you to put life into perspective. Raising children will show you what is truly important in this world, and it’s not you.
Someday soon, you will be a hero to your child because he or she will know the sacrifices you made on their behalf. Choose Life!
