You also need to consider that you both probably have differing opinions on things....when it comes to parenting, it can cause a lot of conflict. From your original post is sounds like you're hung up on the idea of having a baby and will try to rationalise getting pregnant. Like the others have all said, work on the relationship cos babies don't make guys stay. The relationship will definately suffer once a baby comes into the picture. If you decide later to have a baby then best of luck to you. It's a LOT harder than you think before you have one and you can't give them back if it's too hard. Best of luck with whatever you both decide.
