I REALLY wish I had that cool ninja facepalm pic now!
Growing up my loving but very blunt mother had a saying for all 3 of us boys..."If she's good enough to screw, she damn well better be good enough to marry!"
Seriously though Sig...being a father of 4 myself I can tell you that parenthood can change a woman and a man for the better. It starts with accepting that both of your lives as you know them are OVER.
Doing for your children rather than yourself is what transforms adolecense into adults and age has nothing to do with it.
Buy the ring you can afford and make the proposal...
If an unwed expectant mother can't put down materialism and grab that lifeline...well, you can only control your actions and you already knocked her up so do your best partner.
