We must remember that we're in college. We're in college because we don't know everything and hopefully the attaining of knowledge will help us all to mature and learn more things. It's hard to tolerate the opinions of others when they so forcefully counter ours, whether they're hostile or not. It's very difficult.

Now, I want a family one day because I think that's the kind of person I am destined to be. It's not a matter of entrapment or anything like that or wanting to multiply but it's in the environment I was raised in and I love children and it looks like the epitome of happiness, to be fulfilled to the point where you are comfortable to be married and create life with another human being.

Now, note, I said "fulfilled to the point," which does, I think, echo your desire of living life to maximum extent of happiness and if having children is a part of it so be it... is that what you're trying to convey?

It's definitely hard being young and seeing society operate around you. I have a hard time believing I have all my rights as a 19-, almost 20, year old because I can't do something so stupid as buy a simple piddly little beer. Wanting to get to a certain point in life, like growing up (because that's what college kids strive for--the be older... and some people take it so pretentiously far, ahhhh, and forget that they're still young...), makes people do crazy things... like high school kids wanting to get drunk and have sex and not REALLY thinking about it... (I'm not trying to condemn young people who do that, I just think that 90% of them do it because they think it's cool and it sadly never occurs to them to listen to their hearts and weigh what their decisions may bring--which is sometimes not their fault.)

I dunno, rambling! Your post caught my eye.

My point was more to illustrate that it is stupid to want kids because that is one's entire life. If that's part of one's idea of a fulfilling life, then I have no problem.
