You’re absolutely right! I think we do a lot of poor shaming in this culture, especially around reproduction. Women get a lot of crap about doing the fundamental thing that keeps the human race in existence and I think that’s wrong. I don’t think you owed anyone the explanations you gave. There is absolutely nothing wrong with grown married folks wanting to reproduce. Nothing.
Thanks for writing this. I hope folks learn to mind their own business and think before they share their judgy thoughts.
