In todays social and economic enviroment, finding a good man who can and is willing to support a woman and children is increasingly difficult. The divorce rate is 50% in some areas. Women pursue career and dating in an effort to secure financial stability in which to have and raise children and dating is the route to the hope of finding a compatiable mate for the long haul. So, what part of this do you not understand? Infertility often does not just :show up" later in life; for many, infertility begins in the teens. Being a mother is hard work and often older women are more apt to do the hard work of mothering. Give these women some credit; women are more than just baby makers. They are breadwinners, family members, etc.

Yes, and things are going to radically change again when the male birth control pill finally hits the market (only a few years away--clinical trial are ongoing). Imagine, men will be able to litterally take a pill to staunch being saddled with a child they did not want--what will women do when it is no longer completely their decision to make??? Stay tuned for even more radical changes in our society!!!!!!

Too many men are being enabled at NOT being real men.

There is good reasoning behind the roles of the sexes, with men being the traditional "breadwinners" and women being in the home to raise and nurture children - it has much to do with out natural drives. There will always be exceptions, but stepping away from these roles, whether by choice or by accident, will generally produce less than optimal results.

Women had a hand in creating the family situation of today, especially in the form of the feminist movement's belittling of the value of traditional roles, men in general, and women who choose to remain in the home. Women gained access to the professional businesses, but, in doing so, they did a great deal of damage to themselves and their chances at having a family.

A lot of people, conservatives in particular, tend to idealize the past. We like to wax lyrical about simpler times, the "good old days." Of course, if we are honest we have to admit that those good old days weren't always so great. The passage of time and progress of society have brought many blessings – civil, cultural, and technological. Society today is freer, fairer, safer, and more comfortable. Unfortunately many of the blessings of progress come at a cost. The same technologies that make life healthier and more comfortable can also present us with previously unimagined ethical dilemmas.
