On my way to work this morning, I read an article in a magazine asking the question “Is 24 the Best Age To Have A Baby?” The celebrity in question is of course Adele and the summary of the article is that, its ok to have a baby at 24 or any age you feel the need to, so long as you are financially/emotionally capable to go through with it – Financially being the main. For Adele its extremely ok, considering she is currently one of the richest women in the music industry in the world right now – thanks to her multi-platinum album, 21, which currently stands as one of the best-selling records released in the recent times. With or without her boyfriend – she can absolutely take care of her little one.
The writer who is about age 36, confirms that for her at 24, she was far from having a baby at 24 as she felt she was too young and of course needed sometime to meet the perfect man and enjoy her youth besides having a firm foothold on her career/ambitions, sort out her finances and other things women who are quite independent think about. Now, just having moved past the mid 30s age range, she has a child(9months) and her circumstances aren’t exactly as she thought it would have been at this age – there is no perfect man. (Smiles)
In modern times, depending on which part of the Atlantic Ocean you reside, there is the constant need and want to offer your offspring/s the VERY BEST. There is a calculated thought that goes into getting pregnant(Beyonce, anyone) – a lot of women are now like MEN in their thinking. They want to be leaders, they want to ‘RUN’ their own thing, they want to be INDEPENDENT. No one wants to be caught out should incase things don’t go too well with the other half(God forbid – but Life does have its way of doing things). Men want to be millionaires or at least close to being one or at least have something that is very stable financially before they SOW responsibly.
I mean from this question, there are other questions of, once the marriage is sealed, How many KIDS should one have – reasonably? A football team or just Peter and Paul would do.
