Knocked up at 48!

Recommended Posts

I’m in the dark regarding who has been knocked up at age 48! A benefit claimant trying to stay on the gravy train?

However in a world where there was no contraception it isn’t unnatural as many women, unexpectedly and possibly most didn’t want it, found themselves pregnant at that age.

In the modern world though with contraception freely available my personal view is that it’s selfish to bring a child into the world at that age.

I suppose though, on the other hand, by the time the child is 25, the mother will still not have reached retirement age.

Good point.

As spy predicts though kids being born to older parents will increase and the increase in congenital ailments will too!

The generational benefit suckers will be working it out for optimum ages to have your two kids, claim being ill/disability and not work.

From previous posts I see the knocked up one is Daniel Craig’s wife. Oh well, good luck to them....at least they’re paying for the kid themselves. I still think it’s selfish though to choose to have a kid at their age. Just my personal opinion.

Bad enough dealing with stroppy teens in your 40s, must be horrific in your 60s!

Agreed. 

My kids were born in my mid thirties. In hindsight I was too old then!

However DC & RW will have hired help for all the mundane tasks in life. Even, probably, a nanny/child minder!

Having had a somewhat privileged life, I have known plenty of people whose parents could afford to (and chose to) outsource their parenting role. It doesn’t generally produce happy, well adjusted kids.

Agreed.

The optimum life position, IMO, for a kid is being born into a family* with reasonable resources and time to interact with them positively on a day to day basis.

* To me a family means kids born naturally to a male and female. Or adopted into a family of that nature. I’m sorry if that offends anyone but nature knows best IMO.

Congenital is interbred.

This ones pushing it on the functioning dna.

Not sure sure what upper limit is. Depends on person. I reckon i could handle another baby at 46. 50 is getting to pushing it.

Wary of women over 38, really pushing your luck there.
