Because I got pregnant with our 1st child when I was 15 and he was 23. My mom was completely aware of the situation, but still ended up pressing charges. Now 8 years later we are happily married with 2 little girls. My mom and my dh both get along great now. My mom actually apologized to me about having him put on the SO list. Now with that being said it is hell trying to find places to live and he cannot attend any of our daughters school functions. He has to be on the list for at least 10yrs before we can go to court to have him taken off. Every time we tell our story people are usually baffled by the fact that we are still together. I am never one to judge someone on the SO list. People can get on there if they are peeing in public ect.... I know plenty of people this has happend to. My dh is an amazing father and husband. I just needed to vent a little bit.
I would absolutely press charges if a 23 year old man was sleeping with my 15 year old child. That is disgusting. The maturity difference between those ages is huge it's just wrong that a 23 year old would want anything to do with a child so young.
I hope it all works out. I think it's stupid they put people on the SO list so quickly!!! And if you are now married with 2 children I think they should take him off the list sooner. It's not fair he can't go to his kids events!!!
I was 17 when our first child was born. DH was 25. I had already been emancipated when we had her. We're still together 15 years later.
He's an amazing father, a very attentive husband, and one of the smartest men I know.
