On tonight’s episode of “16 and Pregnant,” we met Georgia native Sarah, a 16-year-old obsessed with the great outdoors and writing (she wanted to study journalism in college), but all of her dreams were pushed to the wayside when she and her boyfriend, Blake, found out they were expecting. Blake dropped out of school a year prior because of poor grades, and after he and Sarah learned about the pregnancy, he moved in with her parents so they could better raise their baby.
The expanded living situation proved to be too tense for everyone, however, as Blake’s passion of becoming a shrimp boat captain far outweighed his interest in contributing to the household finances. Not to mention, Blake and Sarah’s mom were constantly at odds (she thought he was lazy because he sat around playing video games and wouldn’t wake up in the middle of the night to tend to his daughter, Tinleigh). In the end, Blake couldn’t take their nagging and left Sarah and their daughter for the open seas.
+ Sarah was devastated by Blake’s departure, but are she and Tinleigh better off without him? Take the poll and sound off in the comments!
