Why must you always go off 'half-cocked' like that and attack people...wosbald wrote:+JMJ+Why is that extreme? That article could describe half the families at my parish. I used to date a girl that was one of twelve kids.UncleBob wrote:Extreme Motherhood
Big Families used to be the norm - my Dad came from a Family of 9 - my Mom came from a Family of 12. If a couple can afford to raise many younguns, they really are a blessing - I reckon the move into town from the farms and the economy has had a lot to do with Families becoming smaller and smaller.
The norm where I live is for a couple of folks to shack up long enough to make two babies, then split up, find someone else and make two more, this all continues until about the age of 40 - makes for mixed up, mentally and emotionally disturbed kids - but it keeps folks in a job, passing out welfare checks - think here, 'rats' (not the children, but the sickos that breed em and then don't raise or feed em!!!). If the sheer number of children count, then there are many big groups here - just no 'FAMILIES'!!!
First part of my post is serious, second part was a mere rant, but sadly, every bit as truthful and serious!!!
