So I was hanging out with a friend the other day and he brought his girlfriend along and she brought her daughter along and I never pondered the idea of dating a girl with a child, but it kind of got me wondering. I think just as long as the child is like at least a couple years old it would be OK. Then again I wonder if I'm getting in over my head. I guess the two problems would be the baby daddy and also, would that mean I would be dating a girl who is always held back? Like for example would she still be able to go to college and get a nice job or is she going to have to stay home and care for the child all the time? I guess it depends on the girls parents. Any thoughts?

Every scenario would be different. Like you said age would make a difference. Like if the child has day care and school. The mom's age at pregnancy would make a difference if she is successful or held back and also what her dreams are...some could at least do part time school and work online. Everyone has a different level of support system as well. In almost all cases what you can expect is having a harder time of making and committing to plans. Unless your comfortable with spending time around the child, and if she's comfortable with it. Again this would depend on the type of relationship the couple decides to have. If its serious or laid back. In some cases the ex will be an issue and in some it wouldn't.
In my case I have a three year old. His grandmother takes care of him during the day a few days a week. Besides her we have no other support system. At the time of pregnancy I had to drop out of college right before my internship, so it has held me back some. I do get government support, but the father doesn't help out at all or gets involved, therefore he doesn't interfere with my relationship.0
