I started seeing this guy and a short time later, I got pregnant. Then I find out hes married. He wanted me to get an abortion so his wife wouldnt find out but I wouldnt. He wasnt there for me whole time I was pregnant. I did not put him on the birth certificate. Now that shes born, him AND his wife decide they want to be a part of my daughters life and get visitation rights. I dont want to. Not only because I have harsh feelings towards him, but because Im scared of how she will be treated esp from his wife. And I just dont want to have my daughter grow up in this situation. I know I did it but I wouldnt have if I knew he was married. Id sooner raise her myself and have no support or anything from him. Can I do that?
