Imagine being together with your high school sweetheart for 12 years, and then a pregnancy changes everything. A woman (29F) and her partner (28M) have been together since they were 16, and they were content with their lives without marriage. But when she falls pregnant, her boyfriend suddenly proposes, and she's not so sure about it. 💔🤰

To Marry or Not to Marry: That is the Question

Our protagonist is torn between her beliefs and her partner's sudden change of heart. She believes that marriage should be based on love, mutual respect, and shared aspirations, not just because of a surprise pregnancy. But her partner insists on getting married before their baby is born, causing tension and arguments between them. Will she give in to his demands, or will she stand her ground? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 💔🤷‍♀️
