Different women, different choices, different perceptions.
In one of Jackie Rice’s interview, the actress declared that she’d rather want to have children than having a husband.
“Gusto ko nga magka-baby lang, e, ayoko ng boyfriend, ayoko ng asawa. Gusto ko lang magpalahi, charot! Hahaha!,” she added.
She believed that the secret woman to be called a “goddess,” even after reaching adulthood is without having a man in her life that will only cause problems.
She doesn’t even believe in matrimony but she still wanted to be married just in case she will be given a chance to be married. Jackie wants to marry now that she is old enough and already have children.
“Gusto ko ikakasal ako… just in case na ikasal ako, yung may mga anak na ako, matanda na ako.”
After breaking up with her non-showbiz boyfriend in 2017, she stays single.
On the contrary, the Megastar’s daughter, KC Concepcion, said she would rather want marriage first before having kids as one of her priorities in life.
On KC’s Instagram account, she posted a romantic photo of her with boyfriend Pierre Emmanuel Plassart and captioned it, “It sure does it feels like February…Happy Valentines Month, beautiful people!”
She met the man of her life Pierre, seven years ago at a gala dinner in Los Angeles.
The sweet photograph of them captured the attention of netizens and a lot commented on how the couple looked good together. Some say that their future kids would surely look good too.
A netizen wrote, “Ang ganda ng magiging anak nito.”
KC replied to the comment with, “In Jesus name. Amen. Wala pa naman. Kasal first, before kids for me.”
As a woman, we have our own personal insights about marriage and having children. What is important is that we are happy and contented on the life we choose – either by being a single parent or getting into married life before having children.
In this society, single parenting is acceptable especially to the young generation due to early pregnancy, but it is also good to provide a child with its right to have a family – with a father and a mother.
Now, it is for you to decide whether you want to follow Jackie Rice’s point of view or KC Concepcion’s priorities in life.
