Sex And Responsibility 1: Pregnancy

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 180

Most men and women want to have offspring. In many cultures getting your wife pregnant is the proof of manhood. Getting pregnant is the authenticity many a woman would ever see in her life time. So becoming pregnant by a woman in a legal and lawful marriage is such a huge achievement that those women who have been with their husbands for more than six months without a pregnancy naturally get worried.

The pains of labour and the sickening season of a pregnancy may sire a woman and make her look ugly and cause her pain of no other comparable magnitude in her life, but she happily welcomes it. She smiles really happily when kind comments are made of her pregnancy regardless of what she is going through.

In spite of the obvious disfiguring of the bodies of the once beautiful looking angelic women, they relish their condition and carry the burden of it with all fortitude. The pain women go through during pregnancy and childbirth can only be imagined by men and those women who have never been pregnant. Men and those women who have never been pregnant would never fathom it. The loss of ideas on what pregnant women go through is more bellied by their courage and the elegance with which they go about their ordeal and term. While some are sired by sickness unto the weakening and making of their bodies ugly, others glow in certain mysterious ways during their term.

Most pregnant women would have their babies through the normal birth process involving the tearing and widening of their vagina. They get cuts and surgical stitches in the process. It is a bloodied process with lots of physical pain. A woman giving birth to a baby may scream, moan and cry and sometimes swear. But as soon as she is delivered of the baby, she smiles and is relieved about ninety nine per cent of her pain. Some come out of it with paralysis, bloodied eyes, impaired voice and movement. There are several complications that a woman could get into in the process of carrying a pregnancy and childbirth.

This means that at most times, a couple is happy to welcome a child in spite of the pain and all they would go through to welcome and provide for the sweet gift of God we call child.

Itemized lists of some of the responsibilities a pregnant woman and her husband must consider are:

· Additional mouth to feed and provide for which mean more income is required by the couple for their upkeep.

· Time - love means time. The couple would necessarily change their habits and use of time to provide for the newly born baby.

· Sickness- probably one in ten women in the developing countries would have complications leading to a prolonged period of sickness.

· Permanent and partial disability- during pregnancy and child birth, many a woman have been involved in life and mobility threatening conditions some of which they carry throughout their lives.

· Disfiguring- all the beautiful bodies are disfigured by pregnancy. And after a couple of pregnancies, the women change so much that many an immoral man have left his wife to look for other younger women.

· Career abandonment- for many women, pregnancy and childbirth have brought their careers to an end.

There is no intention here to discourage legally and lawfully married couples from pursuing one of the most important purposes of marriage - procreation. Procreation is an ordination which mankind has been foreordained to. We should look forward to it and take part in it as one of the ways to prove our authenticity and show obedience to the commandments of our creator.

However, it is important that those engaged in having sexual intercourse even in the sacred and approved place of marriage consider all and learn to be considerate with one another as they pursue the course of marital sexual intercourse.

For those who are unmarried or are involved in extramarital sexual intercourse, they should know that it is not right to bring a child into this world outside the bond of legal and lawful matrimony. This has been established by social scientists as a major source of criminality as these out of wedlock children grow and see their situation and begin reacting to society.
