Not every female who gets pregnant as an adolescent is necessarily a sket? Are they?
Lauren wasn’t the product of a broken family and didn’t have a mother who was a crack head or an absent dad- yet it still happened to her. She was just a typical black girl which many of us can easily relate to. And Courtney’s teenage character embodies a lot of young black males physically as well as mentally. He is very good looking and he knows it, he is also manipulative, conniving and out for one thing. Lauren’s intentions were good, especially as she thought she was in love and it isn’t until Courtney gets what he wants, that she sees his true colours. And just then back walks in her first love and also someone new.
Maybe now she’ll be able to distinguish true love from a mere infatuation…
