The purpose of this research was to measure attitudinal differences between pregnant and nonpregnant teenagers. The sample was comprised of l92 junior and senior high school students. The pregnant group consisted of 87 teenagers enrolled in a Continuing Education Program for pregnant teens. The non-pregnant group was enrolled in a regular junior and senior high school. Comparisons were made of motivations for parenthood, romantic love attitudes and perception of need satisfaction. Analysis of Variance, one-way classification, was used to test the significance of the differences between the means of the two groups for each of the three variables. Pearson product moment correlation coefficients were computed to determine the degree in relationship among variables.
