Principal natural function of woman is to be a mother.
The basic law of nature is the law of extension genus.
The desire for offspring is in our genes since the beginning of man.
Whatever career to achieve, a woman with no children will be pleased.
A woman who has children, will be happy without a career.

Trust me. I've had both.

Children are a joy and a blessing from the Lord. If a person prefers a career over having children, that's exactly what she should do. She would probably make a poor mother anyway. People don't usually have children to make them happy but children are born out of love for a spouse. It is a natural part of being a woman as we are supposed to be nurturers and most of us come by it naturally. Its a good thing all women didn't choose to be childless or we would no longer exist. Nobody should expect a child to make them happy, that is the wrong reason to have children as motherhood is a self-less act. We give to them but they at the same time fill our lives with joy all our lives. Wouldn't have missed it for anything! I have 4 children and also am a Registered Nurse. Mothers don't have to be uneducated but our priority must always be for our children.

IMO having kids will only make one happy if that person WANTED kids to begin with.

There are those who don't want kids, and that is fine too. People who know they don't like or want children are making the wise and responsible choice NOT to have them. Not everyone is suited for parenting, and there's NOTHING wrong with a woman or man who doesn't want kids.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
