  • Any solutions?

    I'm turning 17 in 2 days and my girlfriend turns 16 in November. I don't know what to do because she's almost 4 months pregnant and our parents don't know yet. We've been dating for almost 2 years now and my family loves her a lot, so I think they won't be that mad. On the other hand, her stepdad doesn't like me for reasons unknown and her mom listens to her husband whenever he says something.

    Lately he's been trying to convince her mom to make her stop coming over here anymore and her mom is almost on tree verge of agreeing with him. My girlfriend hates being home because her parents and siblings make her feel insecure and she wants to move in with my mom and I. We've talked about just running away many times but we never got to far in the discussion because we wouldn't know where to go and we don't trust others that well.

    As I said I turn 17 in 2 days and I was planning on breaking the news to everyone, but I'm kinda nervous because I don't want my mom to see me as a disappointment :/ Just like her, I'll have a child at 17. My girlfriend lives about an hour away from me and I want her living here as well since she lives in a bad environment. I also don't want her or my child to suffer from people who don't seem to care about their family.

    Can someone please give me some advice? Thank you and have a good day.
