My boyfriend of 11 months ended it because he says he loves me but we don’t work and we don’t get on and I’m currently 8 weeks pregnant. I don’t know what to do. Can you help me deal with my boyfriend leaving me?

Answer

I understand both of you don't work but it isn't a reason for your boyfriend to end the relationship. You can't dump somebody because of a lack of job. That's not love. The part of not getting along might be justifiable in some circumstances but I don't understand why he wouldn't sit down with you to solve the issues that face the relationship.

Since you are pregnant, he should be responsible. He can't escape from that responsibility even if he doesn't work. This means you need to take legal action against him to so that he can take care of the pregnancy and after the child has been born until the child reaches the age of 18. It doesn't mean you need to reconcile.

One thing that is evident is that the relationship has been faced with various problems including finances and unemployment. The last two issues usually break a relationship apart. I would suggest you don't try to ask for reconciliation because it's evident he doesn't want to get back to it.

The fact he says he loves you but doesn't want to be with you as a clear indication he doesn't want to continue in the relationship with him.

What you need to do is tell him (not ask) that he shouldn't escape from the responsibility of taking care of the pregnancy (and you) and after the child has been born. You should discuss the issue of the pregnancy and the child after he/she is born. Don't abort. If he doesn't want to own up to it, let him know you'll take legal action against him.

I wouldn't suggest you reunite because it will only make the situation worse. You'll know in the coming months whether it's better to reunite or not. As of now, the most important thing is your unborn baby.
