In this day and age you would think this wouldn't go on. But having experienced it and seen it happen to other family member and friends.
I watched an episode of Dr. Phil and it had women who got pregnant to "trap" their husbands. Of course the husbands now resent her and the marriage. I've seen women who are married and the husband is not ready for children but they "beat him up" until he gives in only to resent having to give up personal wants for the child.
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.
