I just found out I'm 6weeks pregnant with my boyfriends baby. I been dating my boyfriend for 7 months. Until I found out I was pregnant I was in love with him I feel hard for him. This is going to be my first child and his second child. He was very happy and supportive when I found out I was pregnant with his child. The only problem is having a child with has opened my eyes wider. He does have a criminal record and makes that excuse as to why he can't find a good paying job. Or why he do that like to work jobs. Up until I found out I was pregnant he worked at a car wash he quit when I got pregnant. He is fixing up a house for me to move in with him. The house used to be his sisters house she paid for it so it's rent free if I decide to stay with him. I feel like breaking up with him because he does not want to get a job to help provide for me and the baby. I work part time retail, graduated College and I'm just trying to find a job in my career field. All this man wants to do is make money on the street corner. Doing u know what if u know what I mean. I need him to man up stop making excuses and find a job at McDonalds or some where as long as it is a job. But he doesn't understand. I love him but I will leave him my child comes first.

No he obviously doesn't want to provide for is child, he only quit a job so he could dedicate his time to provide you with a house to stay in that would be rent free, so money isn't a bit issue. And then he'd find a job. And a criminal record IS a legit reason to not find a job, most if not all jobs, do a criminal history check and if they can choose the person without a record over him, they will!
Between the two of you, he seems to be the one taking this seriously. He immediately went into caring mode, starts fixing a house, trying to help you, isn't running away or being a dick. And you want to run away with his child. If you want to break up, figure out the actual reason, but it's still 50% his child so he still gets a say.
Look at yourself and your life, if you decide to keep the baby and be a single mother, college will probably have to wait, you'll need a better job otherwise you can't really provide, somewhere to live. And if that involves going back home, then how is that any better than living with the father and him helping?
You sound a bit selfish. Probably not what you want to hear.1
