She was half way there
The 💯 STORY CHALLENGE and family planning.
The ring on her finger meant he intended to marry her. Four and half months ago, he threatened to leave. “I’m not ready for commitments. If you abort the baby, we’ll stick together, otherwise I’ll be out of here.”
Of course she shed tears, but still refused to contemplate a termination. “This isn’t my child, but ours. Nothing you do can change that. You said you wanted me as your bride. Was that to tempt me into bed?
“Sex was a mutual choice. Keeping the kid is yours.”
Despite everything, there was no parting. He accepted they formed the unlucky one in a thousand for whom contraception failed. After crossing that hurdle, marriage became the obvious solution. To be halfway there made her happy, engaged with a wedding planned after their baby was born. And halfway there to giving birth. What a brilliant decision it was to stop taking the pill.
