My boyfriend is obsessed with this baby thing and it's making me feel a bit uncomfortable. He's 25 and I'm 23. We're still too young and I don't think he understands what being a father is all about. He just feels like he can make me pregnant and live like they see on television. Is this normal for men? Do they just suddenly have this urge to get a girl pregnant?

Simply explain to him that on your native planet, men and women get married, buy a house and bring themselves to a place of relative security prior to bringing children into the world.1

Tell your boyfriend you aren’t ready to get pregnant and that you aren’t going to change you mind anytime soon. Find out why he wants a baby so badly.
It’s possible that he might be worried you two will break up and he thinks having a baby will keep you together (which, by the way, is not a good reason.)
Or maybe he just feels ready to take that step (also not fair to your life and priorities.) Either way, you need to be honest with him and tell him how you feel.
If he still doesn’t drop it, then I’d consider ending things with him. No one, especially a boyfriend, should put so much pressure on you to do something you don’t want to do. That only shows that he cares more about what he wants than what you want, and that isn’t fair to you.
