I have NEVER apologized for getting pregnant out of wedlock. My dad has mentioned a few times that his daughters(my sister and I) have never apologized for giving them a hard time. I never gave them a hard time, I was a working teen, I did my school work, I cleaned the house... but I had a boyfriend in secret(they were weird about me dating) and got pregnant with my wonderful daughter... I'll never apologize. Had they not been so weird about me liking guys, I wouldn't have been rebellious. DH even tried asking for permission to date me, he called a few times and when they found out he was four years older than me(and saw his picture), they told him no. But they let me date this other guy before him who was the SAME age, all because he looked like a little boy. That guy was weird, really mean, pressured me, forced me, was bi polar and a total schizo. DH pretty much rescued me from that guy.
I think, I hope... that if my parents could do it over again, they would have handled things differently. But I think they were both raised in a funky way that made them weird about sex, dating, the opposite sex..in general.
