Young ladies, after you’ve done some serious introspection, and being a mother is what you really want to be, then being a mother will be your career. Embrace it. In the world we live in, choosing motherhood as your career will make you dependent on a good man to be the father who wants to take care of you and (this is important) also wants a child. Your career as a mother will also mean that society will give you shit because you don’t have a normal career. There is no changing career paths. There is no divorcing your man for alimony and child support. You are in this for the long haul. Realize it. If this isn’t for you (this isn’t for most women) then do overpopulation a favor and keep your uterus closed for business.
