Whats your take?

Parent Center has posed this interesting dilemma.

You have a friend - who wants to get pregnant. Her husband, is opposed to the idea of starting a family. So your friend, on the sly, goes off her contraception.

And what do you know - she gets pregnant - of course its called the 'oops pregnancy'. Your friend and her husband agree to go ahead with the baby after all.

Would you support your friend's action?

Do tell!!!

One of my friends did the same and she confessed it to me. I did give her a long lecture. But at the end, she was my friend and I did help her get over her guilt. This kind of dishonesty is very sad in a marriage and nothing justifies it. Getting pregnant could be a small "cheating" for her. Sleeping with a colleague may be a "small" cheating for him. Would she accept it? I don't think so. But please do help her get over how she got pregnant and focus on the pregnancy and the subsequent child.

Ummmm that's a tricky one..I wudn't really support her decision caus there is always a possibility that the spouse is forced to accept what has happened and hence be happy.Worse come worse he can ask her to abort the child also..So it's pretty much a gamble. If it works it works else....oopps trapped!!

its not so easy to take sides just on what you've put here. Would need to know more about friend and husband and their resp reasons, before taking sides...
:-) I DID say I love sitting on fences in one of my posts...;-)

Hmmm.. maybe persuade her to come clean to her hubby? As twisted DNA says, the dishonesty is indeed sad..

what is there to support or not support? its her life and her decision.

The only one whose support decision is important is the husband.

Oh well!
Dont know! Cheating it is, no doubt but I guess alls well that ends well!
Easy answer from me?

honesty is the most basic ingredient in a marriage. i wouldnt condone infidelity and i wouldnt condone this either.

a child should only happen when both want it. i dont think fatherhood should be forced on a man who doesnt want it. maybe he doesnt want to do the nappy routine. he has a right to decide that. would she like to be accidentally impregnated? ah.. too much. maybe i should go write a post.
