Nowadays, everything is ass backwards. It’s baby first, then maybe love and if you’re lucky, marriage. Society’s priorities have taken a sharp turn. It’s now considered the norm to have kids before settling down, especially celebrities. What happened?
If this indeed is the case, is this what we are promoting for our children? Marriage is not necessary in order to have children? We as a society preach to our children to stay a virgin and wait to have children until marriage. But what about all these other people around us? Practice what we preach, right? 30 year-old+ men and women are too old to be having out of wedlock Oops babies. You’re too old to not know how to prevent and protect.
If this indeed is the case, should those of us who follow the “old school” way (marriage then children) change our tune too? Our expectations? Our values?
Now, it’s a totally different ball game if you happen to be a person who isn’t interested in getting hitched, but still wants kids. Hopefully, these are the people who can provide the financial, emotional, mental, and physical needs that that child needs. If not, please reconsider.
What’s your take on this?
