How should I handle my husbands family not being excited about our pregnancy?

I just found out I’m pregnant with my second child… My partner and I are super happy, and I know his dad, and step mom side of the family will be super happy, but we both know his mom said of the family will NOT be happy. The only reason being our age and we live in a one-bedroom place( plan on moving to something bigger) im 18, and he’s 20… we don’t think age is a problem because we are doing everything our selves with no help at all. Do they have a reason to be mad ??? What should we say if they aren’t happy for us? Please post anonymously

Their opinion doesn’t matter. No one’s opinions matter except you and him. That’s the great thing, what someone else thinks about you is none of your concern! Live your life and stop worrying about others.

You shouldn’t care. If they dont care enough to show support whether they like it or not they dont deserve your time attention nor to see the child if they cant be what family is supposed to be for each other why should you worry about it? Focus on yalls family and the ones that do care

Nothing else matters. It’s not about them all that does matter is you 2 are HAPPY

Tell them to take a hike!

Shit happens. Some people have kids when they’re young and before they’re 100% set in life. If you guys are happy don’t let anyone take that from you. It’s your baby and your family. Everything will work out mama! Like you said your already making it work with just the two of you so don’t worry about them!

Who cares? They’ll probably change their mind once the baby is born.

If your happy and in love and treat each other and your kids right and like you said do everything yourselves and for yourselves and there not happy that’s there problem because I don’t even know you and I’m damn proud and happy for you. And usually I don’t have a high opinion of people who get pregnant young but you seem to be doing everything right so that’s freaking awesome and something you should be proud of at not feel like crap for xox

Who cares, if they aren’t helping pay your bills etc it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks or feels about it. As long as you guys are happy

Dont worry about it. Celebrate with the folks who are excited. It’s their loss.

Take care of your precious babies I am a grandma of 12 every baby is a blessing

As long as you two are happy and don’t ask them for help who cares what they think. Can’t let others control your destiny and life or you’ll never be happy . Do you…

Dont worry about what they think. Screw em… congrats on the pregnancy. Enjoy it and celebrate it with those who are happy for you, and forget those who aren’t. As long as you guys are happy, it doesnt matter.
