3. Nowadays, more and more people decide to have children later in their life. What do you think are the reasons for this? Do advantages of this trend outweigh disadvantages? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience. Model Answer:

Children are the lifeline of their parents. In
this
modernized and westernized world, people like to marry in the thirties and give themselves some time to have children later in their life. In my perspective, It is the personal choice of all the individuals about giving birth to children later or earlier and there are numerous reasons behind
this
phenomena and my viewpoints will be elaborated in the following paragraphs.
To begin
with,
first reason
Suggestion
the first reason
behind
this
phenomena is that these days both men and women work and they live in nuclear families, so they feel that giving childbirth to a child is the biggest responsibility for them, unlike previous times where people used to live in joint families and their children were taken care of other family members.
Secondly
, these days women are working in offices, schools, hospitals and film industry and they are more focused about their career for a better life and choose to delay the decision of giving birth to children.
Moreover
, these days living expenses of people have increased as compared to past and they give primary importance to financial importance.
For instance
a survey was conducted in the major cities of India and its result was that fifty percent people of urban area delay the decision of having babies because of their living expenses. On the flip side, there are some advantages of having babies earlier because after thirties and forties, it is more difficult for women to give delivery to a child and children
also
break the monotony of their life. To recapitulate, I would like to write that merits of
this
trend outweigh demerits.
