Let's talk for a minute about parenthood. Or, more accurately, non-parenthood. I'm talking here about a woman's right to choose. Not her right to choose to stay pregnant, but her right to choose to never get pregnant at all.
A generation ago, women who did not marry and/or have children by age 40 grieved and moved on. But today, with the advancement of assisted reproductive technology, women are no longer given permission to move on.
Not long after I got married, I started getting asked The Question. Those of you who have encountered this question in its many forms know that one element is always the same, no matter how it's posed. We are always asked "when," not "if."
