Okay, so this will take a little explaining. This takes place in a story written RP-style (I am one of three authors), so let me point out I'm only playing one of the characters involved. My male character (M1) met, dated, and got engaged to his girlfriend (F1) in a fairly short amount of time. His most recently girlfriend (F2) then showed up and announced that she was pregnant (six months) (M1 has an adopted child and is acting as a parent towards F1's daughter, but has no biological children). M1, who's got a bit of a thing about his legacy (and wants the white-picket fence life) jumps to the occasion and wants to be involved in his child's life, etc. F2 then ends up moving in with M1 and F1, after which F1 and F2 start a relationship. M1 then proposes a three-way relationship with the two women. Shortly after this, F1 brings F2 to an abortion clinic for, well, an abortion, then come back and tell M1, who is devastated. However, for a number of reasons (he doesn't want to look bad/there's the kids involved/he wants to try and save the relationship/he just doesn't like leaving), M1 sticks around and acts like he's pretty much gotten over the abortion after a huge fight about it in which F1 pretty much tells him that it doesn't matter what he thinks. SOOOOO now it turns out that M1 just got brain surgery to remove a tumor that was making him act strangely for the entire plot. And I am, at the moment, clueless as to either how to make the relationship still work even though F1 and F2 pretty much spat on M1's feelings and M1 will not come around to the "bundle of cells" way of thinking or that it was necessary, or how to have M1 make a clean break without coming off as a complete and total asshole (which he has a tendency to come off as even when I don't necessarily intend to write him that way.) PLLLLLLEASE help me with my character's relationship/abortion problems. I have tried doing research on Post-Abortion Healing for Men, but most of the sites have a religious bent and my character is an atheist (and not particularly pro-life either, it's more the fact that it was HIS baby that he was willing to take care of and love and also that the baby had a good chance of being able to survive if they'd given him a crack at it - at least M1 thinks so).
