First of all, poor mom !! It’s all about her perseverance, not the dad’s. After all, he didn’t give birth to any of the children! Second, poor girls! They must feel unwanted or less wanted than the boys. Had the dad had the two boys first, he would have probably never gone for the other five poor girls !!! They must feel like redundant creatures that were wrongly brought to this world. Why on earth wouldn’t the dad be happy with five wonderful daughters? Now ACCIDENTALLY, I do have an uncle who has five daughters and he had hoped for… Read more »

Poor mom? Maybe… or not. Was she obliged or did she agree to go on have childs while there were not yet any boys?

It is good not to give up, provided that it doesn’t harm anyone. In this case the perseverance may be a mutual decision of dad and mum. But what about the children?

Nice to have so many replies :) I am sorry about the mistake on the number of girls, not that it makes any difference of course. The question here is not if the mom was obliged or not; of course she was not, she even looks happy in the photo. BUT if she was well informed and educated about the idea of spending her whole life at home raising kids and doing housework. Would you do the same thing as a woman, and what would happen to you and your mental health if you are only to reproduce, cook, and… Read more »

A woman, who has given birth to 3 or 4 children, certainly knows almost everything about the ‎difficulties of pregnancy, delivery and bringing up children and the negative effects of this process on ‎her body. But she continues having more children either because she is obliged or on her own ‎decision. The former is a sort of violence against women, which is a worldwide problem. But if this was ‎her own decision, I would call it a foolish perseverance and of course I do not approve of it.‎ This is like the story of weight lifting champions. They know that… Read more »

It’s always the same problem. An educated woman does not accept this traditional and sexist condition. To stay at home only to be pregnant, to cook, to clean all the house and to educate the children. And why a father wants boys? Because girls are less important in his mind, because boys keep the family name, because… what else?
Do you know this slogan in the French Women movement in the 68’s : “A child if I want, when I want”.

I think we can develop this subject more and more later….
