First things first, get married, get a job, setlle down, buy a home. Then ask your self do I want this or do I need this...... If you say want, go back to the first three that I mentioned.....Good luck in your future, I hope it works out......

Congratulation US

Maybe I'm old fashioned but I'd say the first order of business is to ensure your rights to the child you've fathered by making an honest woman of his/her mother.

Kids need fathers, not baby daddies.

You've got 6 or 7 years to think about introducing them to guns.

As a woman who has had 3 kids...........yeah, sorry, we do get a little wacky while pregnant and shortly thereafter for a while. Be patient and tolerant of her. Being pregnant is an enormous responsibility and the thoughts that you are growing another human being that you will have to raise for the rest of your life is overwhelming at times.

I agree with Wills. Maybe I'm "old fashioned" but I don't understand why a couple who is serious enough to have a baby don't get married first. My kids scold me all the time for that point of view. Maybe some of your fiancee's "craziness" has to do with her insecurity of not knowing whether you're going to stay committed to her or not. If she is your "finacee" why not get married..........preferably before having children.

Sorry, but you're screwed. Because you are now stuck with her for the rest of your child's life whether you want to stay with her or not. In my opinion, having a child with her at this point was a very bad move. Sorry to be so blunt.

On the other hand.........children are awesome.

Well your f$$ked, Just sit down with her and ask her do you want the ring or need the ring.....If she says want, to every thing you ask her tell her to hit the road. Take all this advice from those that have been there. Its less costly to learn from other peoples mistakes.......

I agree. If she cares more about a fancy ring than being able to provide for your child and paying the bills, that's not good.

When I picked out my wifes ring , i went to one of my customers who owns some jewlrey stores . I only paid about 300.00 and swapped the rest for boat work about another 200 . AND i proposed on christmas morning so it doubled as a christmas present LMAO !
But i could have gotten her just one ring but i felt the two ring combo was a better deal plus I could just giver her one for engagement and the other for a wedding band
So happy my wife is no high strung like that . Hope yours wakes up after that baby gets here
Kids have a way changing the way you think quite a bit after they are born

she went to K-mart to get mine , size 18 tungsten , like 70 bucks ? MAYBE ..
Im not so worried about the guns around my kids as much as i am my 37mm and my son . HE LOVES THAT THING more so than his pillow pal bird if it wernt so heavy and sharp id let him play with it .

What do you guys think about letting them have a old junker revolver or somthing ? Maybe an old owl head iver johnson , one that cant or will never fire again ? I think it would be better than some cheap lead and arsenic tainted made in china plastic gun
