Abstinence-until-marriage — and faithfulness after marriage — not only protects against sexually transmitted diseases, it gives young people a stronger platform from which to pursue their dreams and goals”. While this may make sense in the eyes of the unpronounced author, dropout rates from teen pregnancy differ. The Center for Disease Control states, “Pregnancy and birth are significant contributors to high school dropout rates among girls. Only about 50% of teen mothers receive a high school diploma by 22 years of age, whereas approximately 90% of women who do not give birth during adolescence graduate from high school” (“Reproductive Health: Teen Pregnancy” ). This shows that even though abstinence education is not doing a correct job, due to the fact that teens still have intercouse, and are left off worse due to lack of education and birth control.

It can be said with confidence that the millennial generation is highly individualistic, especially compared with the older ones. They pursue self-realization through career, arts and education, rather than through family, faith or other traditional values. If in the last century people in the US usually got married in their early 20’s, nowadays the median age of first marriage is almost at 30 years old for both sexes. Millennials want to have their 20’s, the most individualistic period in life, for themselves to enjoy and explore. This doesn’t mean however that the millennials are narcissists who are interested only in their personas.
This could work for me in the short term, however, I’m sure 5 or 10 years down the line I will want a lighter work week. This career path also lines up with one of my higher rated categories, self-worth and I can see why. Comparing this to something like retail it seems like the pharmacist has a lot more respect and responsibility in long term care, which piques my interest. There’s also a high level of autonomy involved in long term care that really interests me. I’m not a huge fan of dealing out orders to others so being able to work on my own should be a good thing.

Having a baby can be exciting and scary, so if the responsibilities are shared among the parents and they spend more time with the infant or adopted child, both will see that they have less duties to take on. Because fathers and their adolescents will share a better relationship, the entire family will benefit intellectually and psychologically, and each spouse will have a better martial relationship with one another, more fathers should take a paid paternity leave. The history of Paternity leave in America is not long, but as for other countries they
If we force women to carry the child, it would cause physical and possibly emotional pain. We should allow women to choose what they can do with their bodies. When women can choose when to have their children, their children grow up in a more optimal environment meaning less crime rates and possibly less child abuse rates. Abortion does not only benefit the women, letting her have another option besides caring the child. It benefits the child from possible child abuse as well as society from less criminals and having to spend less money on future welfare
People may define ready as having enough money to support themselves and their baby but, that’s not what it's all about.
