The paradigm shift has made it necessary for the people to be career conscious and this thought has increased the age of marriage; resultantly they wish to have children at a later age. So, this essay would argue the reasons for it along with its disadvantages before reading at the conclusion.
First and foremost, now people are job oriented and would like to achieve success overnight. They spend years and years in getting an education and after that in searching for a job. They work until they get satisfaction as well as lucrative offers from multinational companies. Thus they get married later and this step leads to children at a later age. This decision definitely helps the people and gives them a gap between their marriage and their children. So, during this period, they try to get all the amenities of life and earn more and more.
On the contrary, it is disadvantageous to them as well. Having children at a later age gives rise to many problems. To exemplify it, now and then, parents do not conceive and if they conceive, they will give birth to a problematic child due to taking medicines for conception. So, having children at a later age does not only pose problems to the child but also to the parents. Apart from it, there would be a generation gap and modern times are more responsible for it. Modern times made people more introverted, unsympathetic, and more money minded. So, it may be due to occupation, family disputes, or other reasons people live in nuclear families. So, parents get old, before their children get mature.
In conclusion, It is necessary to say that having children at a later age is more disadvantageous than advantageous. There would be no real bonding between parents and children especially when children feel the real need of their parents namely parents get old and depend on their children and children at that stage remain busy with their other activities.
