Yeah, I didn't say that it doesn't happen. Heck, I've seen 12-year-old girls get pregnant. But just because it can happen doesn't mean it's normal. If a guy has a kid when he's a teen, that alone would do a lot to change his life--assuming he doesn't abandon the kid (and Paul apparently doesn't), he'll be spending his high school years taking care of a baby. If a guy has a kid when he's still a kid himself? That'll affect his whole life, and a whole lot of his personality, too.
The way the original poster just mentioned the ages so casually, I figured he hadn't stopped to think that 25-year-old dad + teenage child = father at 12. It's not impossible, but it's not something that you can just drop into a story without considering the ramifications on the characters' personalities and their lives.
... What does living in England have to do with the age of dads?
This one is my hack.
This one is the hack I part-time map for.
I got an Illumise?
Glad I grabbed an egg I didn't recognize.
