So is this a sign of mental illness? What possess a grown woman ( not just young girls) to deliberately get pregnant or lie about her desires for children.
1. I don't think it is a sign of a mental illness, just a reality check. Older women that desire motherhood have to do whatever it takes to get to that goal...and time is running out.
2. I think that older women have to 'fall in line' when it comes with their desire to be a wife and mom. I know from personal experiences in dating women well over 30 that marriage/child questions on a first or second date is a real downer!! But what choice does she really have? I mean if she is losing her fertility and wants motherhood...how does she get that done?? adoption and fostercare...are often very last resorts. Time, unfortunately, is not on her side here. But dont cry for her Argentina...just think about the arrogance of many of those same women when they were much younger. I guess in this instance, we can all agree that for the most part, life is fair I guess Ms. 35 and up needs to 'lie' just to stay in the game...Good luck with that!!
