Our expert says:
Its rarely wise to plunge into any other close relationship right after a divorce. I notice you refer to this guy as "my man" I'd guess hat this is not how he sees it ! He presumably saw the rlatonship very differently to how you did, and had no intention of either parenting with you or of a long-term relaionship. It is responsible of him to want to support the child, but if he oes't want more than that, no amount of begging or guilting will get it. I don't think the arrival of the baby will change his mind. I wondered why with contraceptives available, you fell pregnant, but you speak almost as though the pregnancy had been deliberate to glue the relationship back together, and as though you are angry that it is not doing this.
You cannot, by any means, force someone to love you or to want an enduring relationship with you. It does not work. Better to see a counsellor to hekp you move ahead with your own life and the care of your coming baby, rather than always looking back over your should at what you hoped might ocur.
