Boy meets girl, girl and boy love each other, girl gets pregnant. 

Bam, the relationship ends, because boy does not want children.  It's a true-life story, lived by Heather Harpham. 

Her daughter was born with serious medical issues that required attention and dedication from both parents.  The story unfolds in Harpham's memoir Happiness: The Crooked Little Road to Semi-After Ever.  We hear how crooked and how happy, in this interview.
