So my girlfriend and I have been planning to get married in a few short months and were previously not living the law of chastity and just a couple weeks ago I confessed to my bishop and am now going thru the repentance process but today I found out that my girlfriend is pregnant. I have a few questions. Do I need to confess this to my bishop? And do I need to tell my family or can we just get married as planned and tell them she’s now pregnant? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
Because you’re already involved with your bishop regarding this situation, he absolutely needs to know about the pregnancy. It will aid him in continuing the repentance process with you. As to what, and when you tell your family, in my heart I think the sooner they know the truth the better. It will give them the time needed to accept the reality of what has happened and then hopefully brace for the support they want to give you.
I don’t see the good that can come from withholding the truth unless the wedding is very soon. Most everyone knows the timeline for pregnancy, and it’s simple math. The truth will come out sooner or later. Better that it happens now, and may God be with you both as you work through this challenge together.
