Having kids is more work than a serious relationship. When you have kids, women tend to be 90% responsible. Forget about commitment in this day and age, men are great at worming their way out of helping a single mother in any way, especially if it is their child. Out of wedlock mothers are on the rise. After all the promises and sweet talk, women are left alone to rear a child. Sadly, women give up their life and devote all their energy and time to a child who is completely dependent on them. Sounds great, right? Single women can take advantage of the advances that came with the pill and the sexual revolution to prevent getting knocked up. Hell no, pass me the birth control.
Single Women Beware The Cons of Getting Knocked Up
1960’s Sexual Revolution
Hello – do we not remember history? The 1960’s was all about the women’s sexual revolution. You want to make sure to tap into this. Women in history have made a lot of things possible, and we don’t stop there. Get your birth control on. Have as much SAFE sex as you want, and walk away with no strings attached. Women can have as much freedom as men without the burden of children. It’s a huge responsibility. Get birth control now – there are so many resources for free, depending on what state and county you live in.
Yeah, it’s true that children can give you meaning to your life, but they also take away many freedoms as a young person. Your body will heal faster if you have kids young, but it will negatively affect your financial future. Your life will dramatically change, and it won’t be as glamorous as 16 and Pregnant.
I know adults older than I am without kids. They have money to invest, travel, and treat themselves to the finer things in life. They are also rich in time. If you want to rock in your career, then DON’T get knocked up. Think ahead of the consequences. I’m not saying to never have kids, but I am saying that you should think seriously about your life, your goals, and your partner. There are also legal battles you may need to face if you do have a child with a guy. Get a good lawyer, or be prepared to get screwed a second time.
Your Body WILL change
Sex life after birth will be different. Your body changes after birth. Make sure that if you want to suffer the consequences of getting knocked up, then be prepared for your body to go to shit. You will have to let yourself go. Want the solution? Don’t have kids, work out, and take care of yourself. You will want to better your health in the physical, mental, and financial way. Make the most of your life and don’t screw yourself over. Get birth control, for real.
Remember that your life is ultimately yours. Open more doors and prepare yourself for a brighter and better future in your career, health, and finances. Having kids may be a traditional route, but think again: women have more opportunity now than ever, so take advantage of the good things in your life. Go for BIGGER and better things. Remember that Beyonce waited for kids in her 40’s, and she is prepared for them with a committed partner, a career that is hot on track, and a well-balanced life. Carpe diem, my single friends!
