Whenever you start seeing someone, everybody wants to know when you are going to tie the knot. Right after the wedding, they want to know when you are going to have kids. If you are not planning on having them, I’m sorry! Are you guys out of your freaking minds? How can you even think about it? A childless couple? Who is going to take care of you when you grow old? Blah, blah, blah! Even doctors tell women they have to have children if they want to avoid breast and uterus cancer. The same way they prescribe vitamin C, they say “have children”. Women’s bodies were designed for this purpose. We know that if we take more vitamin C than we should, the excess is going to be eliminated through our urine. What about having children? If we regret having them, where does the excess go? There are women and men who were really born to be parents. It is clear that their lives would be incomplete without their children. The problem is when someone has a child only because he/she thinks that’s the way things are supposed to happen. They accept the society’s prescription. They don’t think about the side effects. They don’t think if it is a price too high to be paid. They don’t think at all! Sometimes it ends well; sometimes it is like a very long nightmare that will never end. Children? Willing, planning and thinking have to come before them.
