Evening chaps & chapesses! I was sitting in the local Council offices earlier as Iâm due to leave the area & so have to tell them Iâm off, I began to get a little misty eyed at the whole prospect of leaving, but since the process took a while I started to take notice of my surroundings. Is it me or are there a significant amount of single young mothers about, each with bleached blonde hair & street clothing, with a string of multi-coloured children named after the latest sports car? Iâve recently noticed thereâs a fair few in the United States too. Now I have perhaps, an idealistic view on family life. I like to think that when & if I finally settle, then Iâll meet the right girlie & weâll have children & a house etc. I do not plan to run off & abandon them & divorce would be the very last thing on my mind. I am of the opinion that if you are unable to live with your partner for a significant amount of time then one should not rush to have children. I wonder, do women have the same perspective? Do they not wish to have a standard family with the father present? I observe many that get pregnant then complain that they have to look after children by themselves & canât go out the weekend anymore. Perhaps they should have considered the results of pregnancy first? I know of one girl who had a child then gave it away as she wasnât able to look after it. All this seems quite unusual to me because when I have a child I would want to support it as best I could. My life should be dedicated to their advancement & support, which is why I am in no rush to settle at the young age of 24. I also wonder if they have considered the likelihood of meeting another man after the split? If some young, milf, filly provided an interest in me then, depending on her hotness, I would be obliged to satisfy myself, but certainly no more. My friends & some other fellows will all attest that they are not willing to provide for some other chaps mistake in this situation. Do I have a myopic view? Is a family in the traditional sense an unrealistic goal? Isnât this what most women want too There was a programme on Channel 4 last night regarding âsex in the noughtiesâ, I gathered that there may be some rumpy-pumpy & assorted filth involved so watched with an unhealthy interest. One remark was quite profound however, as one lady speculated that âdue to the freedom of sexuality, people will no longer desire merely one partner & monogamy will be less likelyâ. This struck me as quite worrying as it blows the entire âfamily valuesâ principle clean out of the water. It seemed even more profound as I observed my immediate surroundings in the Council office. Is this to be the way of the new world? Am I old fashioned for wanting such things? Are meaningless, pointless, relationships primarily for sexual gratification the way forward? If so then my theory for ultimate contraception âyoung ladies taking it in the bumâ should have a bright future. Naturally this canât be compared to the couples that have tried with the best intentions & unfortunately failed in relationships, but I must emphasise the âyoung mothersâ mentality is what I wish to point out, who have children at a young age for bizarre reasons, perhaps because their friends do or they need something to love? Then become divorced in instant. Young idiot fathers are equally to blame, especially if they provide no support for their own mistakes. I understand that the whole thing is rather controversial Iâve no wish to offend anyone & of course some children can be brought up in divorced marriages with no problem at all. But I still think the best solution for a family is Father/Mother/Child. Your thoughts? I remain, &c, ~D.C.
