In two episodes of MTV's 16 & Pregnant Monday, viewers were introduced to young mothers Courtney Ames and Savannah Mooney. Their lives? Complicated.
Courtney, a senior in high school from Woodland Park, Colorado, lives with her father and older sister. She got pregnant by her boyfriend Scott.
She had been wearing a purity ring, but Courtney gave in to temptation and began having sex with Scott. Without protection too, it would appear.
Courtney’s parents were obviously very disappointed in this, but they say Courtney’s unplanned pregnancy actually helped her relationship with God.
Not only did she started reading the Bible and praying more, she made a vow to become abstinent until her and Scott got married. That's ambitious.
Scott, 19, works full time and even has his own two bedroom apartment. She agrees to move in despite her reservations about giving in to sexual temptations.
