Hi everyone. I’m new ‘round here and this is my first post ever. Here’s a question about something that for some reason I’ve been tempted to write for a while but that I feel I should get some feedback about. Basically, I had this crazy idea that for some reason I wanna go through that involves a 19/20 years old girl – yes, that young – suddenly feeling the urges to start a family of her own. Yeah, to get pregnant and have children… Now, obviously I don’t have this in mind without some sort of background to explain it. For one, she’s got a complicated relationship with the idea of family, as she never felt she really had a “solid” one. Never met her father, things with her mother were pretty complicated, and while there wasn’t really any malice from them, she could just never really get along with her uncles and grandparents. That said, she’s recently lost her grandmother, whom she rarely talked to but DID care about since she was the closest thing she had to a mother during the times her mother just wasn’t around, and yet… not even once in her life she told her that she cared for her (yeah, she’s not good with words, specially not at expressing her feelings). And now that she’s passed away, the chance is lost forever… Furthermore, her lover just barely escaped a very tight life-or-death situation. So basically, she’s got mortality presently engraved in the back of her mind. She doesn’t want to lose her loved ones, and wants to fully exploit the time they got together, for who knows how long that may last, and she doesn’t want another chance to be lost forever. So yeah, this is what initially plants the “I want to have a child with you mentality”. Now, I’m fully aware that realistically, these are far from the best reasons to start a family and I plan to acknowledge that in the story. As her partner reminds her, she’s thinking like this because of how prominent mortality is in her mind right now, not to mention they are both too young yet (like I said before, she’s either 19 or 20 years old, and her lover is just 5 years older). Even she acknowledges from the moment she starts talking about this that she may not be really thinking rationally and “part of me wants you to talk me out of this madness, and part of me hopes you agree and we may start working on this right away…” Ultimately, she acknowledges they’d be doing it for the wrong reasons and would very likely regret it later. Since the urge won’t go away just like that, though, while she agrees to “not now”, they concur on that, if she’s still feeling like this in over a year, they’ll consider it and start making whatever plans and preparations are required to start a family. And… that’s what I got so far. Now, I guess what I need to ask is, would you guys find it credible that after a whole year, she still finds herself yearning for this? Even if she got over the continuous fear of death being at every corner? What do you guys think? Is it reasonable for a woman of 20 years to be already thinking like this? For the “biological clock”, as they call it, to get to this stage so early? Anyone knows of a case such as this, met a woman who felt like this at such a young age, or maybe you’re that woman? Really, anything you can tell me guys would be welcome. I already thank you guys if you’ve read all this.
