Diply Social Team

Picture this: a tight-knit group of five friends, all in their mid to late twenties, navigating the ups and downs of life together. But when one of them, Lilly, becomes a single mom, the dynamic shifts dramatically. Now, Lilly expects her friends to share the responsibility of caring for her child, and they're not having it. 😳 Is this a case of friends abandoning a struggling mom, or a mom expecting too much from her friends? Let's dive into the story! 📖

Friends or Co-Parents? The Debate Heats Up 🔥

Lilly's friends are torn between supporting her and setting boundaries. They feel they shouldn't have to take on the responsibility of Lilly's child, especially since they warned her about the potential consequences of her decision. Lilly, on the other hand, believes her friends should step up to help her, given the deadbeat dad situation. 😕 Are these friends right to resist Lilly's demands, or should they be more supportive in her time of need? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐
