I wanted a baby as a teen because I felt empty and depressed. I never got pregnant though, good thing. Again, at times when life seems to be in the dumps, I think about getting pregnant.
Besides for seeking financial or keeping a man, is it often that women seek unrealistic happiness through pregnancy?

I know of three different people that did this. One got pregnant with her second child to try to keep her cheating, alcoholic husband around. It didn't do any good and when she was in the hospital recovering he was out drinking with his friends. Another woman got pregnant with her third child to try to repair her marriage as well. The guy was cheating on her and still did after the baby was born. The third girl got pregnant to keep her boyfriend. They are all miserable and seem to resent their children now. It's sad for the women and for their children. More women should be honest with themselves as to the reason they want to get pregnant before thinking about having kids.

Hmmm... Great question really. I always felt, after having children, that being a mom was something the world gives us an entirely unrealistic view of as young women. Seriously, I never considered using my breasts for feeding a child until I was in my 20s. But you'd better believe I understood their other purpose before that. It's sad the way we approach young women these days.
As far as having a child to escape as a teen... Idk. For me it was the opposite... I had no desire because I didn't value what I could provide for a child... I'll think on this one and post again tomorrow :P
