Think twice before you ask a woman when they plan on having children

This is a great article that was on MSNBC – Newsweek:
My Turn: Stop Setting Alarms on My Biological Clock

Can you believe a woman actually said, “Well, you don’t know happiness until you’ve had a baby.”

Excuse me?

Since when does children = happiness? So if my husband and I can’t have children we will never experience happiness? The day I married my husband I wasn’t really happy? I’m really not happy during the times I spend with my family and friends?

This is just one part of the article that got my blood boiling.

It’s a short quick read, take a look!



  1. I saw this article in a few different places on the knot yesterday – the author is my new hero.

  2. I’ve never understood this either. This is much different than your situation, but by choice, I have never wanted to have children. People have told me I’m selfish, that I will never experience true happiness, that it is my JOB to pro-create, and on and on. I don’t get it either. I’m HAPPY. 100% happy, probably happier than I’ve ever been in my entire life and each year just gets better. Grrrr….
