Our expert says:
No judgement here, but contraception does prevent this kind of thing happening.
Once the smoke clears from this situation, you will see that there are no clear winners. Your friend is having your child and your girlfriend is standing by you. By all accounts you are an adult and you can make choices as an adult. Your parents may well be disappointed with you, and they have some right to feel so. They do, however, not have the right to tell you whom to marry and whom not to marry.
You do have some issues to deal with, not the least the fact that you are going to become a father and the mom is your friend. She may be your friend, but she has the right to ask you for maintanance for your child. How will your girlfriend react once the child is born, and how will your parents react if they find out by default that they have a grandchild?
Speak to your folks, be honest with them and be assertive. There are no clear winners here.
