“You know he’s broke, but you’ll get pregnant and tell him, ‘I’ve got good news for you.'” “Is this good news?”
This question sparked thousands of comments, discussions, and shares on social media. The majority of the answers she received focused on the obviousness of her inquiry. Most people felt that expecting a child is not good news for someone who lacks financial security or stability.
Some women’s failure to plan for the long future while considering having a baby was the underlying issue for some. Another theory stated that, while having a kid is something you want and look forward to, the setting in which it occurs is also important.
Nevertheless, people offered solutions to this problem. Advice from financial gurus and successful couples suggested looking for advice, a stable job and investment opportunities that can be part of their lives, that can help the couple live happily ever after. Other advices were focused on women’s economic independence and how having control over their lives can benefit them greatly.
Though this discussion was sparked off a single statement on social media, the subsequent response has left everyone a bit more enlightened and better prepared. That being said, it remains true that expecting a baby without proper financial security is probably not the best news. Watch the video here.
