The Other Kind of Unwanted Child Advice

April 19, 2008 at 1:54 pm 5 comments

We all remember being newly weds and having eyebrows raised about when we’d get pregnant. It’s so common in our culture to be questioned about our choice to procreate. But this time I think I’ve seen it all! If it wasn’t enough that people used to question me about when I’d get pregnant, now I have people questioning why I’d want to get pregnant! Why can’t people just leave everyone be? If I don’t comment on why you don’t want kids… who are you to ask why I want so many? I could have 5 or 10 or more. It’s really no one’s business.

Me thinks people need to keep to themselves.

    Goodness, people are saying THAT to you? How very odd. That’s precisely the kind of question I would be tempted to deflect with a heavily sarcastic put-down… but I can’t think of one just at this moment.

    that’s just ridiculous. i thought it stopped by the time one had at least a kid. People can be just so tactless. I wonder what they expect you to answer? I especially hate these questions – How’s married life? Like do they expect you to say it sucks its like the worst thing ever, I am now stuck with a horrible roommate for life. Or when are you getting married? Or when can we expect to be *insert some relation*. How is that any of your concern and how does it affect you at ALL. I have had really ridiculous questions thrown at me. At my younger sister’s wedding, some random person who I had never ever had met, but happens to be some distant relative – asked me aren’t you older? Why aren’t you married -what’s wrong with you? IIm like back off lady. And like Dariush above, I couldn’t think of anything witty or sarcastic to say at that point. Just so shocked. All the witty comebacks come to me after a substantial time delay. Sadness.
