HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.If your boyfriend has no criminal convictions on his record and if he is not a drug addict or alcoholic, then a background check would be clean on him and there should be no concerns.
Keep in mind the father, even though 15, may oppose the custody to you. But it sounds like you are the better person for the health and welfare of the child at this time.
I suggest there should be no prejudice toward you because you choose not to marry.
However, you will need to show that you have a loving relationship and the longer it has been the better, of course.
