After giving birth and few months had passed, he broke up with me and Said that he is not willing to settle with my family because he was student too.
After I had recovered,I moved and went back to school.Because I was financially unstable,I decided to get another boyfriend who is taking care of me currently though he is a student too at makerere University. Life move on for aperiod of months, on 28th April this year 2022, I discovered that was pregnant again and I found out this week that am having twins.My boyfriend is telling me not abort that he is willing to take care of me however my biggest fear is him leaving me as the first boyfriend did.

    If the guy is serious, let him introduce you to his family. Much as he is still a student, his parents may have the ability to look after you and the children until the guy stabilizes. Abortion may not be the solution, more so that you are carrying twins it would be very dangerous.

    Dear Ritah..Abortion is not the best solution..If the guy is serious with you nd ready to take care of you and the twins it’s ok..Just allow him nd introduce him to ur parents as well as him introduces u to his parents too..Never mind life myt become simpler coz they can give u an upper hand until the guy stabilizes financially..From Derrick, (BAECON KYU, MBA MUK)
