Young adults put off parenthood

The early years of adulthood are supposed to be a time of optimism and hope, but for many Americans now in their 20s it has instead been a period of uncertainty and frustration.

Hobbled by student loan debt, frustrated by careers that have been stymied by a weak job market — and frightened by watching their own parents suffer financial setbacks — many say they feel like they are getting off to a slow start. Even as the economy improves, that’s left some Millennials wondering if they’ll ever feel financially comfortable enough to have kids of their own.

“The American Dream is … OK, we go to school, we graduate, we get good jobs, we buy a house, we have kids,” said Daniel Flores, 27. “And it’s just like none of that has happened.” ...

Not trying to be unkind, so my apologies if I come across that way John Y. Just wondering how a guy who says he is too shy to talk to people in a church in which he is comfortable is going to stand in front of 1000's of adoring fans and sing?(not questioning your musical ability) Stardom certainly brings prestige, popularity and paparazzi.

Speaking of going to church, let me put out a scenario for you John Y that I would not normally recommend. Why don't you stop going to your church (not that part I would always recommend that) and stay home and either watch a televised service (not TBN or a Catholic network--maybe Charles Stanley or David Jeremiah)or listen to one of the many good podcast here from SA on Sunday. (I know Clarence Sexton streams his services on line) SA even has lots of great preachers.like Albert N Martin with many great sermons. I am sure Jim would recommend his preacher, to which you could listen. That way you won't be taking part in what you say you know is unbiblical and you won't have to worry about being uncomfortable around other people. Now you can't use a Hebrews 10:25 defense here because that is assembling with believers not just church goers. Welcome your thoughts on the suggestion, thanks.

Agreed with comments 8 & 9 by Mike & Young Turks. John Y., you're not being at all realistic.

It is taking people waaaaaaaaay too long to marry these days....

Mike of N.Y. !

Before you get married John Y., I hope you will Come Out Of The Catholic Church (PDF) and neither you nor your wife will even recognize The Five Precepts of the Romish Church.

It took awhile for many people to figure out that Amy Grant perhaps was a "good" Catholic, Is A Catholic Christian An Oxymoron? (PDF), but was not a Christian. So, we don't need anymore to follow in her footsteps.

Well I will be a successful Country Music/Country Gospel recording artist because after I become proficient at playing the guitar then I will form a small Country Music/Country Gospel Band.

Then the band and I will secure a recording contract and start making the big bucks. I and the band will record wholesome Country Music songs about the cowboys and the old west and other wholesome Country Music and Country Gospel songs. During concerts I will have an Altar Call given by a Baptist minister asking anybody in the audience who wishes to embrace Jesus as their Personal Savior to pray to Him. And anyway it would be no business of her parents who she marries.
So you need the 22 year old wife to run the farm while you're running around playing music, right? Pretty smart thinking John Y.

Good luck with that. If you start now, you can have a child at 65 and be in your 80s with teenagers. Better get a move on.

I'm 45, and when we had two children I went to my wife and said I wanted to have another child. I cautioned her that if we had another child, then we'd drive used cars. She thought that would be ok, so instead of having one more child we had two more. People today act like we have a ton of kids because we have four.
I fear for those women who choose career over motherhood because the biological clock is ticking. They just might see the clock run out, and feel sorrow for their decision.

In the article it sounds like these young parents are being put off by financial concerns rather than parenthood per se. Todays young women are more geared in modern society towards careers than motherhood. Children have become a financial burden rather than a desired family. Looking back a few decades we see people when they were less well off still aspired to marriage, parenthood and family. But sadly the god of mammon puts financial predictions in a more influential position in todays young minds.

Well, I'm a young man in my late 20s, and I earnestly want to be married and start a family, but right now, I have no opportunities to meet young Christian women (because where I live, almost all the young Christian women are already married or heading in that direction with another guy).

I pray that you will cling closely to the scriptures, not fall for deceptions, and do a better job than we have!
What is called the American dream is what put them on the land in the first place. Being dependent on gov, wracked with debt, and joblessness in the long run came from running away from that dream of independence, and toward the cities with the promise of easier money.

Quite true. I pray that God would open the eyes of these youngsters and that they'd trust Him, marry, and be fruitful and multiply before they are too old and it is too late. I cringe when I think of middle aged and older women especially who look back over lives wasted on careerism, coveteousness, and the love of mammon. How sad to waste life being selfish instead of serving God and others.
