With so much pressure put on the youth to get married and begin a new chapter of their lives, it is mind boggling to see people continue to meddle, especially on the subject of procreation. Is procreation a must for every household? Must every married couple reproduce and populate the earth with wailing babies? Are their lives incomplete due to the absence of children? Aren’t there enough children in the world? When does this interference stop? The invisible rule book to life and marriage is complex to the point of being ridiculous.
Challenges Of Procreation
Procreation in itself is a trying process, with stress, disappointments, and challenges attached. Couples do not need the added pressure of the opinions of misguided people to make things even worse. It is unpleasant and upsetting to be reminded or challenged about your childless state on a daily basis. Not everyone is interested in having children during the first couple of years of their marriage. Some don’t want children period! They shouldn’t be made to feel like monsters for the decisions they make. People don’t have the right to dictate what goes on in another’s home – it doesn’t work that way.
The world is filled with parents who know nothing about raising their kids. Some parents are neglectful, some abusive. Others are raising kids in homes filled with drugs and harmful substances. While others still are abusers, criminals and the worst kind of humans. Why bring up a child under these circumstances?
