WHY is abortion or keep it the ONLY options here? Why not adoption? I am NOT saying she should not abort, I am absolutely pro-choice, but if she is against abortion, Adoption IS an option too. And she still won't have this asshole--and his entourage--in her life for 18 years!

Dan, you need to ask for an authority to speak to this.

She could carry the baby to term AND THEN PUT IT UP FOR ADOPTION. Why don't people think about that possibility? Especially if it is discussed ahead of time by two adults as part of the plan for the future. Or even better: he could have a vasectomy and then he doesn't have to worry anymore, does he?

BTW Max Solomon: birth control (especially IUD and the pill) can fail. A friend was on the pill and took antibiotics and sure enough she got pregnant. Even Tubal Ligations have a 10% chance of failure. (I assume vasectomies similar.)
Oct 6, 2015 BG commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: She Can't Unread That.
"your own carelessness—leaving something so toxic in a place where she might find it and read it—was unforgivably thoughtless." Careless, yes, thoughtless? No. Everyone had the right to their own thoughts. There were other things in there also that she must have realized--well before she got to the part about herself that were very private, but she still read it. Dan, you dropped the ball on that part. '

I do "Morning Pages" where I get up and journal in the morning. My Partner knows about it, the notebook is right out where she could get it. She worries about our relationship (even thought we have been together for years already) and she could look in there to see if I am talking about her or about OTHER girls that she fears I will try it on with. But she doesn't do it. Know why? She is mature enough to allow me some privacy. She doesn't snoop.

This girl snooped and now she got what she deserves. Painful but it is a lesson for her: trust don't snoop.

@4--that is wonderful!

But I AM confused. Where is the Video that Dan mentions of her beating a stage hand? I realize it must have been sarcasm and maybe I am dense, but I missed it. And I didn't find that comment the least funny. The rest is wonderful. I do wish some of that pipe and drape had hit her, that would have been NEWS.

"younger, though mature for his age." is an oxymoron--or a unicorn! This guy is a train wreck in the making. In a few years he will be drinking and having sex and realizing what a fool he was....or he will kill himself because he can't deal with being normal instead of being a Christ-like fictional character, poor thing.

When will naïve young women learn: when you marry a man who cheated on his wife, you marry a man who cheats on his wife. (Thank you, Abigail Van Buren!)

Ever since Regan, I have never understood it: the Republicans talk LESS big government but want to ban and control more behaviors.

@45 I know girls like sex too, but research has been done that girls sometimes feel coerced into sex just because their boyfriends want it. Good sex ed allows them to say YES and also NO and get the guys to HEAR it.

What REALLY irritates me, is that they think that stopping birth control will stop Teen sex. SEX EDUCATION stops easy sex: that is, kids think about what they are doing and girls learn how to say NO sometimes, instead of right away having giving in to their boyfriends. (and if they sign a chastity pledge--so dear to the republicans heart--they STILL have sex, they just have unprotected ANAL sex which is higher risk for STD's.)
