Unfortunately, yes I do and it was quite sad. The couple had been dating about two years, they were not married. They were both seniors in college when she became pregnant. She was excited about the prospect of having a child, he was not. When they told their parents, his father insisted that he come home to work in the family business.(prominent business man in a small town) The couple were from different home towns. Her parents wanted her to have the baby, which she did. His parents were aghast at the notion of their son becoming a father at such an early age. After graduation, she went home and delivered a healthy baby girl. Her boyfriend did not see his daughter born.

 Mom and baby are just fine and have settled in to a new home. She has started dating. Dad has seen his daughter twice, she is now 2 years old.

I find this quite sad.

I personally know of at least one situation in which a man left a woman I know while she was pregnant.  They were not married, but they were living together.

She was 26, he was about 5 years older.  He had two other children from a previous relationship.  As I understand it, he left her because he did not want to be committed to being with her if they were going to have a child.

Now, this is coming from her side only because she is the one I knew, not him.  She said that they had talked about having akid and he seemed okay with it.  But once he was faced with the reality of it, he left her.
