A couple of females I know have gotten married just because they got pregnant. That’s why nearly everybody believed I was pregnant when I decided to marry a guy I knew for only a little over a year.
When our parents found out I wasn’t pregnant, they were aghast. Why would anyone in her right mind want to marry for no reason at all? They told us then that we were making problems where none existed. They said having a family would mean so much financial strife we’d one day be unable to even buy new underwear.
Six years later, my husband and I thankfully still have nice undergarments but the old ones weren’t entirely wrong. The bills just keep rolling in and in a few months we have to worry over expensive pre-school education, family health care, baby’s milk and hired help. Maybe then, we’d have to tie old undergarments in knots to make sure they still fit.
Believe me when I say, that the old ones may not always know how to communicate with younger generations but they sure know what they’re talking about.
