Strawberry Letter: When I Get Pregnant, My Men Flee!
Dear Steve, Shirley, and the rest of the morning crew!
I am writing this letter because I need some type of understanding with my dilemma. It seems every time I become pregnant, my man leaves me. I have 3 different baby’s fathers. I just made 36 and I am currently pregnant with my 5th child. I’ve never been married but was engaged once.
I have 3 children by the first father. When I became pregnant with my first, he dropped off the face of the earth, but he found me and I took him back right before our first child was born. We then stayed together for seven years and produced 2 daughters from that union. We were engaged but later came to a mutual agreement that we should marry for love and not just because we have kids together, so we broke it off.
My second baby’s father is a real jerk. We dated for 3 years before I got pregnant. Even though he spoke to me during the pregnancy, he never accompanied me to doctors appointments and left me and the baby shortly after she was born. My current baby’s father is nowhere in sight and I am currently 8 months pregnant. I have completely given up on any chance of ever getting married due to all of the children I will have and love.
I am in no way a slut and have never been called one by any man I’ve met. I am, however, very fertile and I have some type of medical complication that causes irritation when I use condoms. I have tried birth control pills and was actually on some during 3 of my 5 pregnancies but they failed to work. I don’t date jerks and try a variety of different men. All three of them are very well-mannered, God-fearing, and employed. They didn’t show any signs of having other women while we were dating.
I am intelligent with a great career and am enrolled in a Masters Program. I had even changed some of my ways like communicating more, being sexier in the bedroom, and not arguing over the little things. I just don’t understand why it is so easy for men to leave me in such a fragile state. Please help me!!!!
