    What makes many  people have children although they NEVER wished to do so, often regretting it?

    In a survey done by Anne Landers 4 decades ago, it polled that over 50% of people indicated that they WOULDN'T have children if they had to do it all over again. Very few people want to have children; however, the majority have children based up familial, societal, and religious pressures, much to their and their children's regret later on. Many parents see their children as noisome obligations only to be endured until they are 18 years old and/or move out of the house.Many children are abused because they were unwanted or treated quite perfunctory by their parents. .

    Its again due to society expecting it out of you, or family pressures making life difficult until you give in.
    Life has become more competitive and difficult today and people find it difficult supporting themselves,leave alone supporting a bunch of kids.
    A child requires nurturing,love,food,education for many years before he/she can fend for himself/herself....and if there is bitterness involved ,it can leave permanent scars.
