In recent times, couples get married because the woman could possibly be pregnant for some months and would like to get married to prevent being called names.
Some families, in other cases, would force the man to get married to their daughter simply because they do not want their good name dragged in the mud.
It is however not right to tie a man down with a pregnancy or force him to take responsibility for a child when he has not made up his mind to do so.
YEN.com.gh has come up with some important reasons why women should not settle for marriage based on pregnancy.
1. You are not guaranteed love
In marriages where the man gets married to the woman because she was carrying his seed, there is mostly no love, as the man would probably have been forced to marry the lady. In most of these cases, these men would have been in love with other women but are forced to settle with you for the sake of the unborn child.
2 No happiness
In marriages where pregnancy was the basis, there is mostly no happiness because the couple wouldn’t have known each other better. This might result in a lot of misunderstandings which would lead to unhappiness in the marriage. Pregnancy can be a wake-up call to maturity and responsibility but not a basis for marriage
3. Does not guarantee fidelity
Most women mistaken marriage to be a guarantee against infidelity. Worse of them all are the women who got married while in their pregnant states. YEN.com.gh believes that men who marry their partners because they were pregnant have a high tendency to cheat and not stay loyal because they were forced to somehow commit to one woman.
Irresponsibility comes into marriages where most women force the men to settle with them because of a pregnancy. Most of these men are not prepared financially and mentally for a child. The men tend to be quite irresponsible when they are forced to get married to their pregnant partners.
