When looking at my family, and the history of what has shaped my life, the main even that I can identify is having my son Hayden out of wedlock. This effected not only in a positive but somewhat of a negative way as well. Even though in our present time, children out of wedlock is not uncommon; However, many people such as the older generations still believe that you should be married before you have children. Some of the issues I encountered changed me and the outlook I have now. There were also positive lessons learned from this experience as well.
My parents allowed me to grieve anything I needed to – loss of friendships, breakups, bad grades, moving, leaving home to go to college, etc. My sister got diagnosed with scoliosis and was given a back brace at the same time she got braces for her teeth. So, I remember my parents helping her through the grieving process of those changes.

Obviously to go through a divorce is not the greatest thing on earth; it makes you feel worthless and sometimes makes you blame yourself for why it happened. As I have mentioned before, my grandmother was extremely caring, genuine and just soft in nature. One of the things that made my grandmother and grandfather clash was that my grandfather was somewhat violent and would not consider the next persons feelings when he spoke, he was very presumptuous. And immediately after the divorce my grandfather got married to another woman, which left people in the community and my grandmother in absolute shock. My grandmother was relieved that she got a divorce because she felt like the marriage was setting her ten steps back and she also saw his true colours when he chose to get married soon after the divorce.

In Brave New World family relationships and monogamous relationships are not valued because they cause instability but in Gattaca, family relationships and monogamous relationships are valued because they give the best possible outcome and development for future generations. When Vincent from the movie says “ They use to say a child conceived in love has a greater chance of happiness.” (Gattaca). We can clearly see that this society still values the physical relationship with one another. This quote shows how they still have kids with one another and still value love and emotions.

If parents are constantly fighting this means that one of them think that they're marriage is over. They may try counseling but it will most probably won't work because one of the thinking of one of the parents. Divorce needs to be thought as a process instead of as a single event that influences people's lives. The negative effects children in divorced families have is not because of divorce but due to exposure to traumatic processes and experiences. During the course of a marriage, one or more marital partners begin to feel alienated from the other.

That doesn’t mean they don’t care for each other. They respect one another in a way that all divorced mothers and fathers should. In the long run I have realised that divorce is not necessarily a great thing but it is not a curse either. My parents divorce has not only taught me that no family is perfect but also that even though things didn’t go to plan with the person whom you once loved, that does not mean you stop respecting them. I will admire my mother and father for the rest of my life.
Many woman at this time felt similar. They were beginning to feel a captivity in marriage, and shied away from those ideas. The woman in our story comes to realize that she has become bound to this man, and is expected to fulfill her tasks as a wife.
