To clarify: we used a condom, as we have been doing since I came off the pill (health reasons). No idea how I got pregnant, but I'm guessing the condom split. I did ask for no abuse - I even said please - and I'm already feeling awful about the whole situation so having a go at me is a bit unneccessary. To those with actual advice: thank you. I will take on board everything and speak to my other half when he is home.

If you want to know the full story than here it is...
I left school in year 9 to raise my sister as our alcoholic mother couldn't look after herself never mind two children. My dad was long gone. I went to work at 16 and spent the next 6 years working 60/70 hours a week on minimum wage staking shelves in a supermarket. I also worked and paid taxes for a long time prior to going to university. I do understand your anger at those that take advantage of the benefit system. I worked 60/70 hours a week before the father of my child decided that he had had enough and wanted out. (I had been with him for three years). I suddenly found myself a single parent with only one wage coming in and no way of getting a better job with no qualifications. I spent the next two years doing my GCSE's (left school before I could do them remember) and an Access course. For those of you that don't know what an Access course is, they are courses aimed at mature students that wished to obtain entry into university but lack the A levels to do so. The benefit system is there to help people to move and get back on their feet. Which is exactly what I used it for. I am not a benefit scrounger. Most of the money that I received from the SLC will have to be paid back. I actually owe them £25,000. I have every intention of refunding the taxpayer every single penny that I have received through working hard for the rest of my life. I just needed to make a better life for me and my son.
Hence my signature- if you've been through what I have to achieve graduate status than you'd be very proud of too.
p.s Congratulations on having a £33, 000 a year job. Best of luck in you law degree.
p.p.s I admire the fact that you are brave enough to hide behind an Internet persona. I'm going to inbox you my real name. Feel free to friend request me on Facebook and I will gladly answer any questions you may have in public.

I only just discovered I can't pm you on here. I don't come on here much. I've been too busy getting my law degree to write on Internet forums. Unlike you, with your 6,444 posts. Probably why you have to do your degree part time.

OP I'm a student, it's not that difficult having a child you just have to multi task a bit more.
