I don’t want to have this abortion but my marital happiness is on the line.
So recently I had an IUD inserted as a form of family planning but after a few months, I started to itch all over.
After an evaluation by the doctor, we decided that since it was the only foreign thing in my body, I should have it taken out and observe for while. So, I had it taken out with my husband’s consent. We resorted to using the natural family planning method which failed.
A few days ago, I found out that I am pregnant. My husband is having a fit about this. Now, he hardly talks to me and has suggested that we abort the baby. This I have refused to do.
We already have 2 boys. The first is 3 years old while the second is almost 2 years old. Our plan was to have only 2 children even though I was open to the possibility of having a third child but I was not expecting it to happen too soon.
I don’t want to have this abortion but my marital happiness is on the line. I have prayed and I know I have to wait on God but my husband is growing distant from me. He even told me this is the worse month of his whole life. What do I do?
