How much trouble do a 13 year old girl and a 14 year old boy get in for having a baby?

Depends on the parent. No law is involved unless it's rape. SidePoint: It looks like rape in every state in this country. (USA) That may not be the intention of the people, but that's pretty much what it looks like here. Age limitations set the terms for rape, not the parties' intention, generally. Thirteen year olds and 14 year olds, dispite the best intentions, just dont have the LEGAL capacity to contract to breed for children and then have them. Both parties are probabally delinquents in lots of states. On the other hand, there are lots of 13 an 14 year olds who have been married for say 25-45 years? As for trouble as said: it depends. With careful consideration, the couple might be able to work out a marriage with the courts, and the parents. Having a knocked up daughter whose knockerup wants to marry her can be a good relationship over time if everything works right; geneally it does not; as a rule a 13 and 14 year old expecting babies is a prescription for a life time mess. To start with: to feed somebody else, it is helpful to first feed one's self. A 13 nor a 14 year old, just about anywhere cant even get a work permit to work at a hamburger flipping joint. Eatting for one becomse a problem, much less eatting for three. Without the details, yes, being a parent at 13, and 14 is generally a sort of bad situation to be in. So, yes, there are lots of problems.
