When you look at a newborn child, fresh into the world with all the
helplessness that makes you almost frightened to know how dependent this
infant is, the responsibility that comes with this new little person who
needs you in order to survive, some cannot help but feel weak in the knees.
The tenderness that we feel, we have no idea why feel that way but we do.

Try to imagine yourself as a child. If you could have planned your own
origins, what family would you choose? It’s almost guaranteed that you’d
pick a doting, father with an impeccable reputation. A protector, a man who
takes care of his family, a good man. For a mother, you may pick a
beautiful, tender, caring, wise woman. This idea of family comes naturally
too us.

But as we come into the harsh realities of life, climb our way up the social
ladder (or down it), we tend to lose sight of things we may have wished for
as a child. We tend to believe that we must accept what is necessary in our
perceptive reality. Many of us do not have men we can call, “Daddy.” And
some of us don’t even know who our fathers are. The very idea of that has
become a fairytale to so many people because of boundaries and standards
that have been lowered, and discarded as unnecessary.

But family is necessary. It is one of the most necessary entities that will
ever exist. Each and every one of us, male or female must realize the
reality that we do deserve a mother and father. Children deserve to have
families. This is why No Wedding, No Womb has begun a campaign with the goal
to bring down the number of out-of-wedlock births. It’s time we began to
embrace the beauty of marriage and the value it serves to children.

Marriage is not only ideal for children but its also a healthy relationship
for men and women who wish to have a family of their own even if they are
not trying to include kids in the equation. There are many voices who would
scream that marriage is not good but it has been proven beneficial for many
things, even for an economy! Ideal marriages are not only for romance,
they’re also partnerships, and unique friendships. Imagine waking up next
too someone who loves you for who you are, who takes care of you, and who
wants to take care of a child if one eventually comes into the picture.
Imagine that. It’s not impossible, and never has been. It is time for women,
and men to be reeducated on the concept of marriage. It’s time to act now!
You deserve it!
