There was also a sense of relief around the fact that the decision had been made. While I was younger, I resented the fact that it even was a decision to be made. The little rebel feminist in me hated that I live in a society where there is this big “Question mark” floating over a woman’s head until she’s decided—yes or no—on kids. Everyone sees that question mark. Everyone is wondering. But, now that it’s been decided, it’s a relief. I can’t change the fact that the decision to have kids (or not) is such a thing for women, but I can take relief in the fact that it’s done for me.
