You know you do not like the current condition.
You know this society is not working. you are managing to exist. eating from hand to mouth. struggling to make a living.
you find a partner in similar or worse situation like you and for love or other selfish reason, choose to get married and bring a child into this world.
A child that would be forced to struggle like you.
To use him as cheap labor in your farm ?
As a secondary source of income e.g bride price,child hawking
As bragging right among your peers?
So you can flex your authority and power on him/her
Why? so that when you get old you will guilt trip them into taking care of you with words like
” after ,bringing you into this world
after all I have done for you.
you think because you brought him to this miserable world,he owes you his life.
what did you do for him? you starved him, no tertiary education, no comfortable bed.
AF if it is compulsory for one to own a child.
do we really care for the children? do we really want them to be a part of this cruel world?
Many orphans are praying for caregivers in orphanage homes but we do not give a damn.we want one that come from our body so we have a sence of ownership
you are not happy. your partner is not happy. the society is not happy. yet we bring fotth a child to share in the unhappiness.
are we not. cruel to children?
