What to do

  • LISTEN
    The situation involves more than just you. There are now three lives to think about.
  • STAY CALM
    She needs your support now more than ever.
  • TALK ABOUT IT
    Not only with each other, but prepare to talk with parents and others close to the situation. Hiding the news from people who can genuinely help you only increases the stress.
  • GATHER ALL THE FACTS
    Get all the information and make an informed choice, a decision that is best for both of you.
  • EXPRESS YOURSELF HONESTLY
    It’s normal to have feelings of anger, frustration and fear. But make sure she knows she is not alone.

What not to do

  • DON’T BAIL
    The more you run from this, the harder it becomes to think and act clearly.
  • DON’T PRESSURE HER
    Applying pressure will only push her away, possibly into a regretful situation. You will do well to work together as a team.
  • DON’T FORGET
    You have a very active role in this situation. Listen to input as well as give your thoughts.
