2 Jan 1926 – Viewers Opinion Has Wife Right To Deny Husband Children?

To the Marriage Editor,

A wife has the right to deny her husband if he’s a drunkard and a beast who does not have a job that is supportive to his family. Why bring a child in the world when they cannot afford to. I believe in years to come this will become something that will become more of an issue as basic cost of food and essentials continues to rise.  Also, let me tell you this world, is past being old-fashioned and it will never be again.  The boys and girls now marrying are not flappers that is so outdated.  If a man loves a woman enough to marry her again, he needs to be able to afford it. I know not everyone loves kids but have a pity on the mother she is not a truck horse.

To the Marriage Editor,

Having been a long time reader I am very much interested in the Marriage Column, I wish to say a few things in regards to the new subject that is before the readers.  I think probably in the beginning of the world God intended every woman to become a mother, but as the world stands today there is a limit even in motherhood.  In the first place, no many has any business with a wife and prospective parent unless he is able to care for them in a comfortable way. Under circumstances a small family is an absolute necesssity in the cycle of life. I think three or four children born of healthy parents is perfectly fine. As long as the man is a provider and can well support, educate, feed and clothe all members in these times of high prices, and a mother should not be compelled to seek work outside of the home to help care for the family.  If she overtaxes her strength mentally or physically by outside work. I may say if there is a loving kind husband and again, able to financially provide it is most assuredly a wifes duty to grant her husband the children if they so desire.

A Constant Reader.
