We have no "choice" but to limit our families with the Pill.

Her limited family size has not liberated her, rather it made her fall into a two-income trap. Romney, Santorum and archaic ideas on fertility
This shouldn’t be news to anybody, but apparently, in 2012, it is. Family planning is good for families. In an economy where nearly all mothers work, where their ability to earn money doesn’t merely allow them the occasional splurge at the department store but actually pays the mortgage and the college bills, the romantic idealization of biblically abundant families is a retrograde dream.
We HAVE to work full time, or else we couldn't have a mortgage or send our children to college. Look over time, as family size decreased the cost of everything increased. The only thing the two income trap gave us, is an inflated cost of home ownership and as we all know too well the inflated cost of college. So well, I'm living that retrograde dream. Awesome!
