When I saw this topic come up on Necole Bitchie‘s Twitter timeline I couldn’t help but chuckle. After reading some of the comments left by several women and young ladies on this topic or whom have experienced this personally, it was nice to see that the majority of women have pretty much the same response, HELL NO!
This is one of those topics that’s really ‘to each their own’ but in my opinion I believe that before the age of 25 you should be worrying about school, travel and where the next damn cocktail is coming from. For those of us that had children at an early age we had to worry about night feedings, diaper changes and everything else in between. So many women let their feelings for the man play into wanting to play mommy that it just comes off as a pathetic attempt to fill the same role as the mother of the children. Keep in mind that these are my thoughts for the younger girls/women that fall into this role. Older women (unfortunately not all but I believe the majority) have a better idea of what they want, what they’re willing to give up and what they’re willing to share.
For all you younger girls that do get involved with a man with children please don’t rush it. Don’t stress your partner out or give any kind of ultimatums just because you feel like you’re ready to play house and you want the kids to be part of it. Start with a pet or a fucken plant first. When the kids are ready to meet you as dad’s partner and are ready to accept you as such it’ll happen. I have very strong feelings about this whole topic but I’ll just smile right now and ask you guys to check out the article at the link below and what other people had to say.
