  • I don't know either, I wonder this a lot. I have family members who constantly complain about money issues but they have multiple children! Not older children, so it isn't like they had money when they had the kids and fell on hard times.

  • Accidental pregnancies do occur sometimes. Then you have the choice of ending the pregnancy or making the best of the situation.

  • Maybe they r like me with a husband that will do what he wants no matter if you want it or not. My husband was trying to get me pregnant so i got on birth control we already have 3 kids i don't want anymore until he grow up. But then he took it out and was still trying until i had enough and put him out. For that reason and a lot more other things. Some people only think how cute it is to have kids but don't look at things as long term like how are we gonna care for that child and the rest we already have.

  • my sister has 2 sons to 2 diiferent fathers. (won't get into those stories). My BIL has his own son to someone else that he doesn't even see nor pays any cs. Now They are having their own baby together due in June. Pregnancy was planned. I don't get it. They need to grow up and learn about family planning. they don't use much common sense to begin with.

  • LOL I highly doubt they have plans to change any current nor any future situations. They love milking all the PA system programs. They live off fs, approved for WIC, live off of 2 kids SSI check, 1 cs income, access cards, medical PA health insurance., get food from 4 different food banks. he only works part-time if he even works up to part time hrs each week. get tons of donations from people at church, get rent rebates, return taxes, fuel discount benefits etc. they get it all but any proud pride. The rest of us in our families bust our asses just to get along with the main necessities. She refuses to work but she can volunteer at kids library school. Bunch of BS!!WHITE TRASH is what they are. only refering to my own relatives.

  • I apoplogize for my rampages. (":vO) No I'm not jealous. No reasons for me to be. I just don't see them being any better than other people. Can church brainwash and warp peoples' minds? they have alot of irrational dyfunctioning thinking.
