Allowing a new life would mean marriage or in some unfortunate cases single parenting. Are you really prepared for it?

    • It is in fact better if both the concerned families come together and bond.
    • Make sure you do not ever fight over whose fault it is. The boy or the girl did what their age demanded them to do, so let’s just keep it there!
