Worried About Pregnant Best Friend

Published: June 01, 2015
Dear TeenHealthFX,

My best friend is pregnant with a man approximately older than us by 8 years (we are nineteen). He has an ex-wife who stalks, threatens, and verbally attacks my best friend on a regular basis. She even goes as far as showing up to the restaurant my friend works at to confront her. My best friend's boyfriend recently told his ex-wife that my best friend is pregnant and now he has been acting like a complete jerk. He blew up over the fact that she was with us (a couple of our friends and me). He shoved her off of him when she tried to apologize (which isn't right since she did nothing wrong) and he let her sleep on the cold, tile floor. The next day he was even worse. He left her the keys to the apartment while she was working without anyway of her getting home safely or anything. He told her was leaving town for a couple of days. They share a bank account and he has the card, so he was leaving her without any money. Throughout the day he continued to berate her via text messages. My other best friend and I took her to the apartment they share to pick up some clothes and other necessities she needed while she stayed with one of us indefinitely. This was the first time I had ever been to her apartment she shares with him and I saw some of the portraits he painted. He was in the army and all of his paintings involved people shooting and killing one another, including a portrait of him killing Adolf Hitler. Of course, this also worries me very much. Throughout the day, she also worried me with her remarks about wishing she could buy him something that would make him forgive her, which isn't right either. She went back with him at the end of the day, while he was drunk. She won't think about the harm he could cause her and the baby and I don't know what to do anymore. I donâ??t like seeing my best friend being taken advantage of like that.
