When underage teenage pregnancy occurs can both of the childred involved get married without parental consent?
Answer . Each state has it's own laws that govern the age when a child can get married without parental consent. Pregnancy or not, it depends on your age and the specific state law.
The best way to deal with teenage pregnancy is to have your baby. God has sent you the baby for a reason. You never know what can happen in the future. Take me for example. I got pregnant at 15. I am now 23 and I am not able to have another baby at the moment. When I really want one. I know that at …least god sent me a beautiful little girl. That if I cannot ever have another baby at least I had one. Do not abort. That is the worst thing a person could do and if you have a conscious it will be there for the rest of your life. Because a life that is killed because of abortion is a life that was meant to live. I know it is hard financially. But there are alot of programs that can help and get you through until you turn 18 and be able to work and take care of your baby. Having a baby is the most precious gift you could ever receive. you dont if you are not married then your dum and you shoulda thought of it before (MORE)
Teen pregnancy can be a serious social issue. By definition it is when a single teenager becomes pregnant. Mere age is not the main challenge, since it was once not uncommon for people to marry in their teens and begin their families. However, in today's society it is very difficult to survive ec…onomically if you don't have a certain level of education or job skills. For this reason, when a teenaged girl becomes pregnant, both the young mother AND the young father can be trapped for life in a downward socio-economic cycle. Their potential for success, and that of the baby and any other children they may have, becomes seriously stunted. In addition, teens in general are usually not developmentally or psychologically ready to carry and care for a baby and this can contribute to many other difficult problems for their young family. For reasons such as these, teen pregnancy does not only affect the teens themselves (which is sad enough on its own) but also contributes to other social issues that affect the wider community.

Yes, greatly because of the fact that children get their ideas on how things work in families from their parents and if neglected, they look elsewhere for affection and if treated well, it also shows. I couldnt agree more, i definatly would say yes. Because teenagers can be described as lazy no g…ood bean bags. At least some of them. And if most of the teenagers in our sociaty are lazy how can we trust them to take care of a human being? This is what i ask. Lack of sex education is one reason but also, and I guess you can call it lack of parenting skills, US parents don't have the kind of relationship to their teens so they can talk about it. They compared Dutch teens to US ones and the they all had equal amount of sex but the US teens had way more pregnancies and STI's. The difference they found was that Dutch teens can speak to their parents about sex very openly and the parents know they are having sex and help them get birth control etc. US parents just said no when they talked about if their teens were allowed to have sex. They just closed the conversation. So the kids were having sex but felt they could not talk to their parents about it. Until they had no choice and it was too late and they had to. Parents need to stop sticking their head in the sand and pretend "oh no not my little girl". (MORE)
they're against it because they feel to "underaged kids" will be incapable of providing a good healthy environment for a newborn baby. in other words, they don't trust teens with that sort of responsibilty.
teenage pregnancy is increasing, because parents aren't keeping a good enough eye on their children, half the time parents don't even know where their children are. Also schools aren't introducing sexual education early enough in school years
You should never think that bringing a life in to the world is bad. Tough, yes. But even if you give the baby up for adoption, you are giving someone who cannot produce life a chance to be a parent.
If the teenage age is 19 and not a full time student - NO - if under 19 years old or a full time student under the age of 23 maybe 26 - solely dependent on parents then in most cases YES.
Answer . Assuming the teen is covered under the policy before she gets pregnant and the plan does not exclude pregnancy for all then yes.
Well the main sign is if you have had sex and don't get your periods. But really teen precnancy signs are the same as any other pregnancy. But if your a teenager who has had sex and is late with her period, then please, take a pregnancy test. Talk to your best friend and get them to help you. Unl…ess your mum knows everything about you, it's probably best you wait until after you are sure your pregnant before you tell your pregnant. Because if you tell them and then you don't end up being pregnant, your parents will consantly be bugging you about everywhere you go and everything you do because the won't trust you to make responsible desicions. Good luck! (MORE)
Teen pregnancy can be an emotional roller coaster. It can cause serious depression. You may not be able to take the pressure of having a baby and trying to finish school.
for a teenager to get pregnant is bad because most of the time the girl is not responsible enough to take care of the child, and was not responsible enough to make that kind of decision in the first place. if she didnt plan it, she shouldn't have spread her legs for him.whether protected or not ther…e still going to be a possibility.i am a teenage girl. who wanted so badly and nothing more to have a baby. but i realized that my boyfriend isn't able to hold that decision, and neither am i. pregnant teenage girls need alot of money to support both herself and the baby and at a young age,and that's harder than it seems. i wouldn't want to have to have problems with feeding and supporting my baby. or stealing from stores to support the child. and i definitely wouldn't want to give my child up. but those are things you have to think of before getting pregnant. and lots more on top of that.

What are the laws on teenage pregnancy in Tennessee if you are 14 and your boyfriend is 16 Can your parents make you not see him?
Yes, they can prevent you from seeing each other. The fact that you're pregnant has nothing to do with it. Being pregnant does not give you any rights.
In 2006 in England there was 39, 003 women between 15-17 that were pregnant, excluding miscarriages and illegal abortion. 48% of which had legal abortion (via a hospital/doctor).. Source: Office for National Statics and Teenage Pregnancy Unit. Hope this helps.
60% of the teen moms drop out of school and many need welfare. The relationship falls apart (more of a rule then exception) and she will have to live with her parents much longer then she normally would. If she, or her parents, afford daycare she can get a job but the jobs available (if any) is not …paid in a lot of money if you don't have a degree. You are depended on your parents for many years to come, to pay for your child and if you want any chance to be able to graduate from high school. In many cases the father have very little or no contact with the child. (MORE)

Teenage parents are teenagers who have a baby. This means that they have had sex and the girl has given birth. Unfortunately, the percentage of teenage parents in America is growing.
Finances are affected by the person who is paying for the pregnancy. The teen father of the baby may have to quit school and get a full time job to support the baby. If the teen has no money then it will affect the parents, who may have to take the mother and baby into their home and pay all the exp…enses. There are the expenses of pregnancy to be sure, doctor visits, prenatal vitamins, maternity clothes but the real expenses come after the baby is born. Food, clothing, diapers, car seats, strollers and so much more. If a teen doesn't have the financial means to care for the baby for 20 years, then it would be a wise idea to consider adoption. (MORE)
Teenage pregnancy is when a teenager has sex with someone nd then gets pregnant at a really young age.
Teenage pregnancy affects their lives because they possibly may nit be able to finish high school & the statistics of teenage mothers / parents attending college & finishing it is very unlikely. Not only will it affect their education but also their child's life. Many children who are born to teenag…e mothers are very likely to be raised in very poor conditions & would not have the life that they should have had as if they were born when the mother was of age to handle the situation. Teenage pregnancies also prevent women from finding jobs & succeeding as independent people. Although, some teenage girls do fine on their own , it is very likely that they need support for their parents or others or do not do very well. To prevent teenage pregnancy condoms & birth control & other protection is highly recommended. If you or someone you know is in this situation , adoption may be the right choice.. (MORE)
Having sex like everyone else is the main reason but there are also deeper reasons. Some feel it makes their relationship more serious having a baby and wants a family, not realizing very few stay together due to the strain of having a baby. Others have not got proper sex education and believe in my…ths like you can't get pregnant the first time or they just are not educated about birth control. Teens are very much living in the now and don't always think about the consequences, thinking "it wont happen to me". That is just how they are because their brains are not fully developed yet. And then of course there are those who are on bc but it fails. (MORE)
The fact is, you can't. Teenage pregnancy wasn't created voluntarily, babies are made daily by teenagers 'having fun', and making the babies they call mistakes. Basically, most babies born to a teenage mother was unplanned, and a complete accident. Teenage pregnancy is always gonna be an issue, but …what a shame that is. (MORE)
As soon as your child turns 15 u should put them on birth control if u dont want to do it to them that early do it when u think they want to have ***!
Please see related links. There are many factors of teen pregnancy that can affect the fetus, and factors of teen parenting that can affect the child. Some of these are strictly medical whereas others have more to do with the stress caused by things a teen parent has to deal with. Stress is the m…ost major contributor to health problems in both the mother and child in regards to teen pregnancy and parenting. (MORE)
It can be difficult to untangle the psychosocial causes of teen pregnancy from its effects, because many of them are related and cyclical. For instance, those in lower socioeconomic populations tend to be less concerned about whether they get pregnant as teens--and when they do, they tend to be trap…ped in that low socioeconomic status because they often drop out of education and are limited in employment. This is true of teen fathers as well as teen mothers. In addition, girls with low self-esteem are more likely to become pregnant as teens, and even though some may think having a baby is going to improve their self-esteem, they inevitably find that it doesn't. Many are not prepared for the stress and responsibility and become psychologically overwhelmed by it. This only reinforces self-esteem problems. Other psychosocial effects can be similarly cyclical and interwoven. This is why teen pregnancy is such a difficult social problem to address. (MORE)
Well, this is more of "On the bright side," but mainly because you learn to be incredibly responsible at a younger age than others, which may help you in college or future careers.
i would say it would be easier to be the parent of a teenager, because some parents would just leave their kids to do what they want, and have brought them up to be responsible enough to know what is right and what is wrong. teenager because if ur a parent it would be sad 2 leave your kid,:(
The society today think it's bad to be a teenager and be pregnant. They think that having kids should be for when you are an adult and when you are responsible enough and stable enough to raise a child.
it affects teenagers, community, schools, homes, countries, the baby's life, the family, other people, your life, and friends.
The rate for girls aged 15 to 17 in 2010 - the most recent period for which figures are available - was 35.5 per 1,000 - the lowest since 1969..

Teen pregnancy can affect her education because she will not be able to focus as well during school and often times will drop out of school because she is embarrassed about her situation, and school for teenagers now days is honestly not a comfortable place to spend your day when in that sort of pre…dicament. If she drops out of school she can still be home schooled and take online classes, however when the baby comes she may not have time even for online schooling and may drop out of that, too. (MORE)
Because it is not very socially acceptable to have sex before marriage and it is very socially acceptable to have abortions.
You cannot make a teenage sim pregnant. The youngest age a sim can become pregnant is Young Adult. If you don't want to wait a while for the sim to age up, press the buttons Ctrl then Shift then C. A bar where you can type things in will appear at the top of the screen. Type in exactly this: testin…gcheatsenabled true This will enable the cheat world of the Sims 3. Then Shift click on the sim, and click the option "Trigger Age Transition" and the sim will age up (only once). So if this is the teen you would like to be pregnant, she will become a Young Adult with this cheat, and then you can make her pregnant. (Also here's another tip: if you type in motherlode into the box at the top of the screen, you will receive $50,000 of which you could use to buy things for the baby) I hope I helped ;) (MORE)
Take care of the child as best as you can, and try to go to school. Be sure to talk to others and not let everything bottle up in you.
There's about 6 000 000 pregnancies a year and 750 000 of those are by teens.
surly he or she would refered to their parents and disscuss the matters and should have to visit doctor for the best advice to keep the baby or not.
The economy causes many things, if someone does somethinga, it is likely someone else will copy them. For example if someone said they had had sex at 13, then many other people would think this was right, and think that's the right age, when it is not, and by doing this.. it can lead to unprotected …sex.. even pregnancy, in the world we live in today, we copy friends.. family and generall other people if we agree with it.

Teenage pregnancy is relate mostly on the society a person livesand how the values of that inner society are installed in thatperson. In areas were is better education there may be more ways toprevent teeanage pregancy. But in rural areas for example there aremore risks to be a teenage mom.
not always. Sadly,, the teenager could have been raped, and therefore have no control over her getting pregnant. The teenager may be sexually active and not have planned for a baby- which is more common. However, there are many teenagers who plan to become pregnant, and will do whatever it takes t…o fall pregnant. (MORE)
The US spend $8 billion on teen pregnancies. Less well educated women since only 1% has graduated from college by the time they are 30. More single parents since only 4% of the relationships last.
No it's not although many think so. It's about not having the knowledge about birth control or how it works or simply being embarrassed about asking for it at the store or bring it up in bed or too scared to ask the parents. Most US teens have a hard time speaking to their parents about this. Teens …are usually not promiscuous. Unlike many adults. (MORE)
It cannot be argued that teenage pregnancy is a direct cause crime. i.e the moment a teenage girl becomes pregnant, they do not also instantly become a criminal. However, it is true that crime rates are higher among pregnant teens. But it would be wrong to conclude that teenage pregnancy result…s in crime, since it may be that crime results in teenage pregnancy. Or both of those results could be externally influenced by another thing, for example (randomly), number of piercings. It may be that those with more than three piercings are destined for teenage pregnancy and a life of crime, however the stats currenlty available do not go into that level of detail. (MORE)
60% drop out of high school and less than 2% have a college degree by the time they are 30. Doing homework with a baby that need attention is not possible. You have to have someone watching them. Not getting to sleep is another thing that makes it hard to concentrate in school and at home.
it shows that the parent doesnt know where thier child is and what theyre doing
Please be more clear when asking. Teen pregnancy is not a religion or anything that require belief.
It affects you hard! The mother is probably still on her parents insurance as long as she is pregnant buy the birth and the baby's insurance they have to pay for. Then there's diapers, formula, clothes etc. Daycare cost too.
abstaining from sex completely and using condoms . Sex education and accessible birth control. Teach parents on how to talk to their kids. By the time they reach college 9/10 have sex so sticking ones head in the sand thinking "Not my little girl" is not helping..
Keep calm panicking won't help anyone and speek to your parents if you think you are pregnant
Because a teenager is not an adult. A teenager has not had the time, experience of life, or know how acquired to properly care for and raise a kid on her own. She is emotionally, physically, and mentally immature. It is hard because it is not the way it should be. A kid should not have to raise a…nother kid. The difference between a 16 year old and a 26 year old is ten years of growth, experience, and knowledge that make a huge difference. (MORE)
The lack of parental guidance is not necessarily the cause of teenage pregnancy, but teens that have an open communication with their parents or an other responsible adult in their lives tend to have more information on how to avoid pregnancy, even if they are sexually active.
