My mom thinks my boyfriend should pay the water bill even though he doesn't live here: Advice?

So I am expecting my first child I got pregnant at 17 and am now 18 and still finishing high school and living at home, me and the dad are still together however he has moved to another town for work. I am still at home so he can save for a place for me to move up there with him, before his job we lived in my moms house and he payed the water bill even before I got pregnant, now that he’s moved out I don’t see why he should continue to pay the water bill when he doesn’t live here, however, my mom believes that he should because I use water and electricity and I am “his responsibility” when before I met him I didn’t pay anything, it’s as if me and him arnt together anyways since he’s not living in the house or even in town, I tried telling explaining that if I wasn’t pregnant and he left then he wouldn’t pay the bill, but now that I’m pregnant and he “left” (just gone for work) he still has to pay it? Am I in the wrong ? Or is my mom?

He doesn’t have any obligation to. He doesn’t reside there​:woman_shrugging:t2::woman_facepalming:t2:

He has no reason to.pay it. If you’re still in HS your mom is legally responsible for you… which includes all utilities… cps can be called on her actually. At least in my state

i don’t think he should have too because he’s no longer there, to me just sounds like your mom doesn’t wanna pay it herself

I think she needs help with bills. It’s your mom you should be helping since you and your baby live with her.

Your mom is still responsible for you until you graduate. If she’s getting child support for you that’s doubly fucked up

He’s not responsible, YOU are, get a part time job like everyone else. You’re 18. You made an adult decision to get pregnant.

Well every body else has to pay their water bill.

Well first off, you’re 18. Sooo you definitely can get a job to help out with your portion since you want to go and have kids while you’re still under her roof…
she still supporting you while you go to school.

Basically you’re a tenant and you’re using her facilities so I mean she can ask you to pay it. And if you’re not working well I guess that lies on him🤷🏼‍♀️

Move out lol

Your mom allowed your boyfriend to live with her high school aged daughter, she’s not very rational! How much could a water bill be? Jesus🤦‍♀️

Your mom sounds like she liked not having to pay that bill and became accustomed to him paying it for the time he lived there and now doesn’t want to have to pay it. He has absolutely no obligation to pay it and you are not his responsibility just because you’re pregnant by him.

He has no responsibility other than child support when the baby is born. Then you get a job and help pay and get on out from under your moms roof and take care of yourself and your baby
