To make a long story short. Me and boyfriend have a 1 year old and we have a baby on the way. We lived in NY for sometime but prices are getting high and we were not in a safe environment. Boyfriend owned a three bedroom place and rent was super high. So we was looking at places down south. My sister offered us to live with her. She had an extra bedroom. We packed everything and traveled down south. When we go there my family was acting weird. My sister changed her mind and we had to live in hotels. Money was running out and boyfriend didn't want us living in the streets. So he suggested that me and the baby live at my dad's while he stay in the car. So it's been very stressful. My dad and my boyfriend got into an argument but my dad was yelling. He called him a bum and that he should have a house for his daughter. And he's not going to take care of his children because he's jobless ( what my dad doesn't know is that he got the construction job). My dad also said we are not going to make it and all he's going to do is hurt you. And that he feels sorry for the kids. After things cooled down my boyfriend apologized to me.. The next day my dad told me he felt bad and that he over did it. But he thinks we are not going to make it... and I'm going to be a single mom.

He failed. I don't know your boyfriend to know if he's doing everything he can. But your story doesn't paint him in a bad light. All he can do is keep fighting, keep plugging away. And do what he's got to do to get there. Your job is to take care of that child. I DON'T want to paint your dad in a bad light because I don't know if he's right or if you guys have just been dealt a lot of misfortune. But I will say this, I don't think a lot of older adults get the economy of your youth is NOT the economy of THEIRS. It's pretty much required to have a 4 year degree to earn a livable wage. And you have to put yourself into deep debt usually with no guarantee that that degree will EVER pay you back in the future.
If your boyfriend is a man of character he will rise to the occasion. A man finds a way to get it done. Just give him moral support when you can. You just take care of that baby. 🙂
