How do you feel about remarrying?

March 27, 2018

All married couples, starting a common life, hope to live it happily for a long time. But this is not the case for everyone. According to statistics, 40% of marriages end up in divorce. 

After some time, when the divorce process is in the past and passions subsist, a significant number of people are beginning to think about the possibility of remarriage. Such thoughts are absolutely normal since people seek happiness. If the first marriage did not succeed, then you should neither despair nor assume that life is over. 

Some believe that remarriage is an excellent opportunity to build a family life. Perhaps this attempt is not so emotional and romantic, but it is more insured against the surprises and mistakes of the youth. Just recall, how often you’ve said to yourself: “If only I knew then…” Now you know – and you have the opportunity not to repeat the past mistakes. 

Remarriage usually starts from the assessment of the personality rather than from strong emotions, love grows over the years, and this process requires patience and effort. For some, remarriage is another attempt to become happy, while others, for whatever reason, are negative and somewhat skeptical about remarrying.

So, what do you think about remarrying?

  • 1. I support it; this is a chance to be happy and build a life with the person you love
  • 2. I have nothing against it, but only if partners understand the mistakes of the past and aren’t going to repeat them in the new marriage
  • 3. I do not support it; the marriage must be concluded only once in a lifetime
  • 4. I don’t support it because I see no sense in it; if a person wasn’t able to cope with problems in one marriage, they unlikely to succeed in the next one
  • 5. I'm against marriage in general

What do you think about childfree attitudes?

Childfree life is a vital position characterized by a conscious reluctance to have children. Nowadays, the childfree movement is increasingly spreading around the world, triggering a wave of discussions in various segments of society. 

It is important not to confuse childfree and child-hate, that is, hatred of children. Childfree people do not feel the hatred of children, but simply don’t want to have kids, for one reason or another. 

Among the most common reasons for reluctance to have children, there may be a lack of compelling reasons for having children, unwillingness to spend time and sacrifice personal space, satisfaction with pets and watching the children of relatives or friends. 

Some scholars are convinced that childfree is less socially convenient since such people are more likely to be selfish and individualists. Religious figures are the most active opponents of the childfree. In general, church ministers approach the subject of childfree with the same demeanor as to homosexuals or same-sex marriages. 

Active childfree believe that they are also subject to political discrimination because families with children have tax breaks and enjoy lighter norms of labor law. Modern society still often condemns women who do not want to have children, because historically it has always been believed that the main purpose of women is to give birth to children and to bring up the offspring. 

The situation is changing, but slowly. Instead, childfree appreciate their freedom the most. They are convinced that no person or institution has the right to prohibit them from making decisions about having or not having the own kids. Also, childfree is not something drugs- or murder-related but a legitimate feature – and no-one can sanction you if you decide to choose this way of life. 

What do you think about childfree attitudes?

 

  • 1. I support it
  • 2. I have nothing against it, but I am not one of these people
  • 3. I don’t support it, if a person is able to give birth, then she should do so
  • 4. Difficult to say

If you knew during your pregnancy that the child may be born with certain physical or mental disabilities, what would you do?

March 25, 2018

Modern diagnostic methods allow assessing the pathology of fetal development in the early stages of pregnancy. Nevertheless, a significant number of parents, even knowing that the child can be born incurably ill, refuse abortion. 

Imagine a situation when you are looking forward to having a child and already love it with all your heart, but the doctor tells you disappointing news about the likelihood of developing a pathology, such as Down syndrome or heart disease. What will you do in such a situation? Will you deliberately decide to give birth or would you opt for an abortion? 

Of course, if the child is expected and desirable, then such a diagnosis will cause disappointment and depression in anyone. In this case, the future parents will face a dilemma: either give birth to a child or to do an abortion on medical evidence. Some people categorically reject the second option because abortion is considered a killing. In addition, rarely, but still there are cases of doctors making a mistaken diagnosis. 

Also, children with pathologies, regardless of their intelligence, may well be happy if they’re given the chance to be born and live in a family where this child is loved and cared for. 

Yet, if a couple decides on the birth of a child with possible pathologies, they need to be ready for challenges on behalf of the society: the circle of friends may shorten, maybe one will have to leave work. In any case, do you have close people who can help in a difficult situation? 

Some believe that it is wiser to stop pregnancy in such a situation because to give birth to a child with pathologies means to devote all your life. Only this will not bring happiness, and such a child will be unhappy. And what if suddenly something happens to you, and the child will not be needed by anyone? Therefore, some people decide to play safe – and go for an abortion. 

So, if you knew during your pregnancy that the child might be born with certain physical or mental disabilities, what would you do?

  • 1. I would give birth in any case
  • 2. I would leave the child only if the birth and future life would not cause physical pain and suffering for him/her
  • 3. I would have had an abortion
  • 4. Difficult to say
