How do i convince my brother not to move out ?

He's 20 years old and at the moment, still living at home, but he wants to move out as soon as he can because his girlfriend's pregnant. He said he wants to move out as soon as possible so he has time to prepare the house for when the baby's born. Decorate it's room etc. . . The thing is, i don't want him to go. He's my only sibling and as much as he annoys me, i'm going to miss him. The worst part is knowing that once the baby's born things are never going to be the same between us again. He's obsessed with his unborn " son " already. It's all he talks about. Constantly. I know that when it's born my brother's not going to leave it alone. I'm hardly ever going to get too see him, am i ? Is there anything i can do/say that will stop him from leaving home ?

dont say or do anything, be happy for him, he needs to move out and start his own life, if anything your relationship with your brother will get better. It's his son coming into this world and he wants to do the best he can for it, if he didn't he would just be a dead beat dad. you have a nephew coming into this world also so you should be just as excited, nothing between you two will change, i'm sure you'll be over his house all the time helping with the baby. enjoy it.

People need to move. I mean, i always wanted to stop people from leaving. But when i need to catch up to my life, nothing stops me. Your brother needs his space. I mean, wouldn't it be a bit selfish keeping him home? You'll be off to collage one day, and, did you think about him? Maybe his calling is there, and if you really love him, you'll let him go. You know this quote "if you really love someone then you have to let them go". That's the truth. My best friend is moving this year. I could have stopped her, but what if i'll have to move, then she'll be there, lost an opportunity just cause i wanted her to stay. So, if you want the best for your brother you'll let him go do his own life, before it's too late. You should think about him, not you.. I know, it's hard to leave a sibling, especially a brother, but.. That's life.. No one ever said it's going to be perfect, and that's the (sad) truth :(. Hala

Your brother has a responsibility to live up to for the rest of his life, and needs to move on and look after his family now. You love your brother so much that you need to let this one go... When the baby is born - you will forget that he left and love your new nephew and the newest addition to the family ...

He will never stop loving or caring for you, ever. What you won't believe now is, after the baby comes, you will fall in love and enjoy him as much as your brother and his g/f. Remember, the baby is part of your brother...and you will see similarities in him and then you will have two people to love, your brother and his little boy.

You need to let go of your brother. Stop being selfish. He wants to provide a home for his new family and that is great of him. When he does move you will be allowed to visit him any time you want but you cant stop him from doing what is right.
