Growing up, this is something that my other always told me. I've had several conversations with older sisters who have said that if they could do things over, they wouldn't have had children. Other couples my own age are horrified at the thought of raising children in "this system". I know many couples, now in their thirties and forties who desperately want families but are putting it off until after Armageddon. This is particularly sad to me because so many of them would make wonderful parents.
I know that the world isn't what it used to be, compared to when my parents and grandparents were growing up. But has it gotten so bad that the average person (outside of the organization) would not want to bring new life into this world? Or is this something that is peculiar to Witnesses?
