Kathleen, I think you are partly correct. But when 40% + of the babies are born to single moms in the US, they can't all be expecting to have a "career." I agree that too many women are duped into thinking they will have a "career" not a job. Something is making them think being a single mom is a good thing. The ones I know are all working low paying jobs if working at all. They don't seem to have a grip on reality of how much it costs to live and how much kids cost. Diapers are not cheap. Married couples limit because they can't afford to have more kids. Or maybe because we're too stupid to know how to work the system???
