Most modern couples start out with little or nothing but have a long-term plan in place to get something in the bank before starting a family.
They’ll want a baby on the way but finances will play a vital part in deciding when to do that. They’ll first get a car, perhaps a home, and build a financial nest-egg for their future. Soon, they’ll be a mini-corporation with two incomes, a love-factory and the hopes to replicate their best traits within their children at the optimum time.
Young, responsible couples with good equity often want children around the time when their earning potential has grown significantly. It’s then a case of losing that position for a period of time because the growing baby needs a uterus. It also needs milky breasts. Women have to leave the work force to incubate and nourish their offspring until a time that benefits everyone involved.
Society has us believing that equality exists in a well-bound mathematical construct. It assumes men and women are the same. Career and education versus finance and stability leave little space for nature. We know the sexes aren’t the same but that doesn’t stop us feeling angry or frustrated when they mark our boundaries and remind us of it.
Evolution doesn’t care for financial objectives or investment portfolios. Mathematical constructs are for mathematicians and accountants. The reality is: Children happen. Children will also get sick. Mothers can get sick. Emotions will change. Relationships certainly change. Complications of all types will alter the time-frame on things previously written into diaries and legal contracts.
Until the day comes when the uterus becomes redundant and we can have children grown without females, women will still fall pregnant and loan their bodies out to nurture children. Mitchell and Sam Felding are planning to do this right now. They are in their early thirties and chosen this year to try for a child.
They made this choice shortly after their shares turned a good profit. Twenty one point six three percent. It was a good year last year. So was the year before. And the year before that wasn’t too bad either. Several years of wise investing has put them in a position to make babies… in the regular way.
That’s the problem. The regular way is irregular.
Mortgages, cars and incomes are the regular things Mitchell and Sam do extremely well. Making babies is a highly irregular activity. So is having sex. Making love is a foreign country and they haven’t a passport between them. It’s all so very bizarre. No one knows what’s not going on between the sheets, least of all them.
She wants a child. She’s on special vitamins. They are exercising everyday and have removed alcohol from their diets. Coffee is out. Sweets and sweet drinks are off the list too. Everyone who matters knows of their plan. On paper, it’s all full-steam-ahead. Between them, these two young healthy bodies should have some virile sperm and a lush uterus any baby would be proud to show off… but for one thing: There’s no sex in this couple’s marriage to bring them together.
I said it’s bizarre, right?
One of them is living a lie and the other is supporting it. What happens next will absolutely astound you. Read it all in my new novel SEETHINGS. it will shock, frighten and horrify you.
