An unmarried man is not entitled to FMLA to care for his pregnant girlfriend. FMLA covers spouses, parents and children but not unmarried partners. Even if the two live together, boyfriends and girlfriends cannot take FMLA to care for each other. So the boyfriend cannot take FMLA for prenatal appointments, but he can take time off for childbirth and to care for the newborn.
