What did you think of the Dec. 15 episode of ’16 and Pregnant?’ Will Megan & Nathan be good parents, or does she need to dump him NOW?

Megan thought her boyfriend Nathan was the love of her life — but her baby daddy just doesn’t seem ready for his new role, considering he spends all his time playing video games! Megan’s father just got back from Iraq and was NOT happy to have Nathan living in their home. He tries to talk Nathan into joining the air force, but Nathan keeps making excuses. Even after Megan gave birth to a baby boy, Nathan went right back to his video games, leaving Megan and her mom to take care of the newborn. Nathan got a a job offer in Texas and he’s seriously considering it, but Megan fears if he takes it, he’ll never come back.

Here’s everything you need to know about Megan & Nathan:

  1. Will she be a good mom? I think she’ll be a great mom because she’s really trying to be there for the baby, getting up at 4:30 a.m. to feed her. She’s also really good about pushing Nathan to find work, but she’s delusional about his ability to be there for her and the baby.
  2. What’s her family like? Her family is really supportive of Megan and her baby. Her mom really cares about how she’s doing, and her sister is her biggest supporter. Her dad is also helpful in trying to motivate lazy Nathan.
  3. How’s the baby daddy? He’s awful! He doesn’t care about how Megan is doing, and he’s too lazy to get a job, let alone help take care of the baby. If he moves to Texas, it might be the best thing for Megan!

I totally thought Megan’s sister was going to kick Nathan in his ugly facial piercings. I was definitely cheering for her to. What a worthless piece of trash. And how stupid was her mom for letting the guy move in? Be a parent and not a friend.

Nathan ought to take up his responsibilities like a MAN. He should praise his lucky stars he is not in jail for statutory rape or worse. If he does not do whatever is necessary to care for the child he started, then make him aware of the Child Endangerment and Child Abandonment laws and their consequences. ‘Baby Daddy’, give me a break. HE is acting like a jerk. Pathetic. Us guys who don’t take responsibility for all of our acts, regardless of who started the romance. Dudes, if she is hustling you, bug-out NOW and look for a more appropriate date as one seeks a life partner in marriage. Wanna hook-up? stay home with yourself, your odds are better! Everyone contemplating marriage and children ought to be required to get a license first AND be the solo caregiver for an unhappy infant for a week, including groceries, entertaining and laundry. If you can’t do that, don’t start down the path towards the ‘nasty’, as you are unfit for the consequences or the wonderful pleasures of full partnership and are merely a reckless jerk, regardless of gender or race or heritage!

Ok…I’m not defending Nathan but everyone seems to forget Nathan is still a child himself and acting the way most young boys act so don’t expect him to act differently for many more years…having a baby does not make you a grown up…sad fact but Megan is the one that’s going to have to be the grown up and move on…

This episode was just both sad and weird. I find it hard to believe how someone can be so addicted to video games and yet be so oblivious that a baby is on the way. It makes me wonder how did Megan get pregnant anyway since Nathan’s so addicted to playing video games. Her parents shouldn’t of aloud him to stay in their home, especially if he wasn’t going to contribute to their household. What a douche!
