Nowadays, more and more people decide to have children later in their life. What are the reasons? Do the advantages of this overweight disadvantages?
Nowadays, more and more people decide to have children later in their life because of the rising financial burdens and changes in people's ideas. This result has several advantages and disadvantages and in my view, the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. In this essay, I will illustrate my view with examples and explanations. First, because the price of products keeps increasing yet the wages remain, the financial burden of youngsters in this generation increases. They can't save as much money as people in past generations so they need more time to save money to raise a kid. For example, my dad saved 100,0000 nt dollars when he was 28 years old. On the other hand, my brother only save 50,0000 nt dollars when he was 28 years old. To conclude, due to the difficulty of saving money, youngsters in this generation have children later in their life. Second, nowadays most people no longer think that getting married and having a child is necessary. People tend to focus on their dream more. For example, my father had a child at 28 years old. However, when my brother was 28 years old, he was busy chasing his dream to become a doctor and had no time on having a child. As a result, because people's ideas change, more people decide to have children later. Having children later allow people have more time to do what they want to do. People no longer need to give up their dreams because of their children. In conclusion, the advantages of having a child late overweight the disadvantages. To summarize, because of the increased financial burden and changes in people's minds, more people decide to have children later and because of having children later, people have more time and money to spend on themselves which gives them the opportunity to fulfill their dreams. Finally, I suggest that the pros outweigh the cons.
