Do you think it is okay to just go ahead and have a baby because you want one? Under any circumstances? The other night I watched a terrible movie with Jennifer Lopez. It was the Back-up Plan. It was just a boring movie. But she decides to get artificially inseminated because she doesn’t want to wait to have a baby. Last week I watched a move called The Switch with Jennifer Aniston where she decides she wants a baby and she gets inseminated. These women (the story line) are clearly in their early 30’s and attractive, and deciding to just go ahead and have their baby, no need for daddy or hubby. Then we have Kourtney and Kim Kardashian who both decided to go ahead and purposefully get pregnant before they were married. And then in Kourtney case still deciding not to get married. So am I an out of touch prude? Possibly. But I wanted to get married, enjoy my husband, and together have a baby and raise our children together. It is very hard to have a baby on your own. I think these women and the media are glorifying the single mother. And worse yet, the are degrading the role and importance of the father and husband. It is better to have a mom and a dad and of course a happy marriage. That doesn’t always happen. There are accidents or course. And there are a lot of fathers who leave and who suck. But there are fathers who stay and provide and love and they are great and very needed.
