It is not a secret that all females are born with a maternal instinct: “an inborn tendency to want to protect and nurture one’s offspring.” This instinct may be one of the greatest reasons why we, females, tend to have this bond with every infant we meet!
The reason behind me raising this issue now is due to the fact that many females I’ve come across seem to fancy the idea of getting married just because they want to give birth, they want to have a baby of their own. The idea of marriage in itself has become so insignificant to them, the magical story of two people falling in love, getting married and starting a family together, does not seem to impress or attract them!
It is sad, really, how our own experiences with the world, especially the “wrong” type of men, and those stories we hear from others, can actually hinder this rather strong notion of wanting to build a family and replace it with the single desire of having a kid!
I can recall the exact words of one of those girls while she talked on and on about men, her experiences and her disappointments. She said to me: “Now, after all that, all I want is to get married for the sake of giving birth legally! Then, the man can just go, and I will handle everything on my own. I will be the mother and the father and I will provide my baby with all she/she needs. I don’t need a man in my life!”
Has the time to really think that way come? I mean if the smart and beautiful women end up thinking this way, which end is our world heading towards??
