    i agree. its like we dont think enough of ourself to want to have a complete family. i mean dont get me wrong i have a child and i am not married. i had a child @ a young age but guess what .. it’s my only one. after the shock of the first one, woman get to comfortable and just keep having them . it’s a disgrace i think. and then i can remember while i was trying to raise my kid i tried to get help from the government, they would not help me bec i only had 1 kid. i work everyday and i only ask for help with food but i was denied due to the amount of money i made and plus my son’s father was serving 11 years in prison for a non violent crime, so i was denied help. but they were no problem for someone with 2 or more kids to get all the help in the world. they become comfortable and dont want to work, they dont wake up until about 1:00 in the day, have cookout all summer with steaks, shrimp and my tax dollar pay for it and i couldn’t get help..im saying all this to say, dont let your standard get lost in life, remember first come love then marriage and then the baby carriage..

  8. Wow. Babymommadrama, I understand where you’re coming from. But overall, it’s just different these days, isn’t it? Maybe being ‘fiance-ed’ is enough for her? It’s different for everyone. I’m not going to judge her too closely, but I do wonder where she’s going next with her singing career. I didn’t gel too much with her last album. She needs to get back to “The Boy Is Mine” (i.e. pop/crossover stuff), I think. She can sing; love her voice, but not her music…lately. πŸ™

    :iagree: and I know this is a touchy subject but I think alot of people are afraid to speak on it. It’s become the norm. And YES there are single mothers who ARE doing it, but overall, this is not good. Just b/c something becomes common doesn’t mean it’s ok. Not trying to offend any one here, but we are worth much more than to keep playing into the Baby-Mama stereotype

    i agree 100%.. nicely put btw

  11. I respect everyone comments on here but let face it divorce rate is so high it crazy. Alot of people do not want settle down they love jump off. Alot of men not saying all do not take care of there kids. So you have to respect these women that work hard and take care of there children. Yes i do agree with baby mama some people do get comfortable have all these children and do not like to work we paying for them to sit on there butt watch maury (U not the father episode lol). That why the government is cutting down and giving them a couple of years to get it together im happy for that.

  12. Congratulations to Monica I am a Fan and I hope her next album is better than her last.

    On another note since the topic was brought up, I just have to say :iagree: with Baby Momma Drama. It is unfortunate that in today’s society unwed preganancy is the norm. I too have one child who is now 6 out of wedlock and after the shock of becoming a teenage mother (17), I chose to straighten up and prevent the same thing from happening again. I now have taken it even further and have been celibate for over a year. I have chosen to save whatever I have left for the man God has chosen for me and at the same time prevent myself from becoming a single mother of anymore children because it is definately not easy. In all this though, we must remember not to judge those who don’t see things our way and just pray that things will get better for future generations.

  13. having two kids and being unmarried is bad. having two kids and having to pay child support to some guy is worse. ie…britney spears, young ladies read the writing on the wall.

  14. For what we know half of the posters here are unwed stop being an hypocrite and clap you hands to a woman being strong enough to raise two kids and raise them well
    There is couple that raise the biggest gangsters and unwed people raising intelectual and vice versa so stop all of that foolishness

  15. the majority of black women brought the bar low thanks to you now if you’re black you suppose to be a entertainer and showwing your body if you don’t you can’t succeed and is you are an intelectual people will ask you if you grew up in a “white neighbor” so dont come here and criticize knowing that if a rapper offer you to give him a kid (without marring you but promise and sign papers to buy you and you kid everything until you die) you’ll run and accept it trowing all your values at the window black people love money more than they love themselves
    so stop criticizing and crying scandal up and down hypocrites

  16. Let’s face facts, more than 60% of black women are single and never been married. I really think that we need role models for our young girls, role models who may πŸ™‚ even be young single mothers,who are in the lime light doing big things. They need to know that their life isn’t over and there’s still possibilites for them to have success, even after being a young single mother. I think its worst when girls have babies when they’re not finacially stabled to provide well for that child, which I’m sure Monica is, haven’t heard her go bankrupt or anything. Who says growing up in a married home is always best? There are alot of kids who grow up worse in a two family home than in single! Kids who may have grown up to see their father abusive, their parents arguing all the time , or just disfunctional. It’s not the end of the world when a young girl gets pregnant out of wed lock. However I do agree that young girls need to practice more self respect and love and treat their bodies like the temple it is. πŸ™‚

  17. In addition to all that has been said and perhaps not to be applied to Monica’s situation (but if the shoe fits) Black women are making poor choices everyday when it comes to who we decide to lie down with. We have the tendacy to go after deadbeat men with five and six different baby mamas/children. Chasing thugs, pimps, playas, inspiring (untalented) rappers, (basically your frequent flyers to the state pen) has left a lot of young women, mothers, unwed, damaged, and fustrated. There is nothing funny or appealing about seeing black women in this type of situations. I think that is why even women in the same situation have the tendancy to look down on other single mothers; its a reflection their own mistakes. Why we frequently make the same mistakes over and over is beyond me. Maybe desperate to hold on to a man.

  18. My husband and I don’t have any kids. Even while we were dating we took precautions so that we would not get pregnant. So it is possible. The reason I shake my head about so many women having so many kids is b/c there are SO MANY methods of birth control accessable to us for this to be happening left and right. Let’s be for real, this should not be common.

  19. Whether she is married or not she dosen’t need 2 cents from the government. congratulations to Monica and her FAMILY. I feel sorry for married women who live with “husbands” who refuse to take care of or spend time with their own children. Some married men are no different than baby’s daddys. I feel sorry for these women because they stay married to put up the “I’m married” front. Single mothers keep your head up and keep holding the family down! One vow I did make was not to get married until my daughter reaches the age of independence. Right now I’m married to raising her.

  20. d@mn is it really that serious?? a baby is a blessing, she is a grown a$$ woman, why are ya’ll makin’ it so deep??

  21. If some of these parents took more stock and care in making and taking care of their children then perhaps they wouldn’t be so effed up. So many people put their very all in their careers or education, relationship with the opposite sex and materialistic things, but when it comes to making a baby, there’s never a second thought about that possible child’s future.

    In Monica’s case at least she’s having her children and taking care of them. So many women take the easy route and end the child’s life. As if they didn’t know that if you have sex there’s a possibility that you will get pregnant :bag: Now, those are the women that should be ashamed :bag:

  22. :stop: I”m just curious…….does anybody feel that way about Halle Berry now becoming an unwed mother , her being a bad role model? Or because the fact that Halle’s older, does that just stand for young urban black girls and not her? Cause as far as I’m concerned I haven’t heard any dissing about her and her soon to be baby daddy! I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but some of ya’ll is just being down right judgemental and that ain’t right! :hmph:

  23. ?said, i agree that part of it is because she is young and urban. halle people see her as an older woman with this being her last shot to really have her own child.

  24. Yes i agree it alot of women in hollywood that get pregnant without being married. It not about the celebrity it about the real world it about us as women. It been a problem since day one. It going to get worst before it get better. The mother in this world is getting younger and younger.

    Wow. Great contrast. What say the rest of you? LOL.

  26. There is nothing wrong with a woman having a baby and not being married. Where is the law written that you have to be married or have a man to be happy and complete.

  27. Wow, yall need to stop this mess. Wh is everyone always getting upset with Monica. First it was Lil Rock, then the Sideline Hoe song, and now the second child Ro-melo. Yall really need to get a life. Marriage isn’t for everyone. And yeah, why didnt anyone say anything about Halle having a kid out of wedlock, yall need to stop.

  28. It is true that people have the right to make their own decisions, but it does not mean I have to congratulate these same people for doing things I would never do. I don’t have sex and I would never have sex even if I was in a serious relationship. My body is a temple and I will treat it as such. Sex is treated so casually these days that people expect you to do it with anyone at any given time. We don’t treat sex as something that should be sacred where the bodies come together as one. Instead it’s all about “girl I gots to get mine, because I can’t function without some d*ck”. Men these days expect sex and women willingly give it to them. Just because marriage is not an option for everyone does not mean I have to applaud women who willingly choose to have unprotective sex, and then bring children into this world who they often times cannot care for.

    To me it has become disgusting with the way we keep saying how ‘awesome’ it is for these women who are not married to have these children and the father is nowhere to be found. How does that look? It looks bad to me when I see so many single mothers especially these little girls who don’t even know how their own body functions having children out of wedlock, and a lot of people condone it.

    It’s not even so much that people should teach their children about self-love, etc. It should be taught that giving your body to someone is a priviledge. It is not a right. Your body should be the one thing you value most, because you only get one in this lifetime. Yes Monica is a grown woman, and yes it is nice that she has the financial means to take care of her children. But if there are young women looking up to this young lady then she is setting a bad example of having a child by a man she is not yet married to but just engaged to. That same man she is with could decide to leave her and then she will end up with two children to raise alone. This issue is complex, and I am just tired of seeing this type of behavior so rampant in black neighborhoods. If people don’t see this as a problem then we are already losing the battle.

  29. i’ve been married every since i was 17 after 1 year of dating and gratuated from high school when i was 16 i know you’re gonna tell me “so what ” but in every story you need a begining … i’m currently 6 month pregnant with twins, its my first pregnancy and its nerve racking and physically chalenging wich is why i’m less and less on here . I’ve had sex with my first boyfriend wich is now my husband the night of our honeymoon i’ve always considered my body as a temple and i don’t just say that to look pretty i mean it so anytime i see a temple being disrespected i’m shocked …

    i so so so agree that an unwed pregnant woman is not the most atractive thing in the world but as long as she has a man that do recognize his kids and is willing to take care of it i won’t cast the first stone because at least she know who the dad is !!! do any of you watch maury? :booty:

    Black people are so hypocrite, so damn hypocrite the same people you see in here judging and poiting fingers are the same girls you could find in the club grinding and bumping on beyoncΓ©’s last sexual training track who are you kidding?

    Do you know how many adolescents patients of mine that tell me that they have sex with a lot of different partners because it makes them feel as sexy as the pop stars they see on t.v? do you know how many women and yes i said women are willing to give their bodies for a semblant of love? how many of you here are single mothers with a dad unknow on the entire planet? how many of you here point the finger at monica but won’t condamn the real reason why some of us black women raise the bar so low that we allow men to walk up and down of us ? when will black people stop being so damn hypocrite so we could move on to better and bigger things?

    when we answer all of those questions we might get somewhere . For now practice what you preach [and you will recognize yourself] if you dont have anything nice to say shut the hell up and take care of those unpaid bills :bag:

    To whom feel concerned

    congrats monica

    sorry for the language i got to go get me some chocolate love ya πŸ˜€

  30. Congratulations on your pregnancy Dark Sister :thumbsup: and happy new years

  31. I want to say congrat to Monica on the birth of your second son. No matter what the situation is I truley think that it is a blessing to have children. Even if you are not married. It is important to evealuate ever situation that you are faced with in life. Getting married and having a family is not going to make your life as a mother and wife better. So Monica keep your head up.

  32. We’ve been conditioned to act and play certain roles due to society detecting how people should lead their lives. Traditionally, the right thing is to marry and then have children. But we live in a modern world andtimes have changed. Monica having children out fo wedlock does not make her any les of a mother than someone who waited to have children after wedlock. She seems to be in a loving relationship and secure relationship, otherwise she wouldn’t be having baby #2. Atlteast in this situation, both mom and dad are in their kids lives and not spending time in prision. The few times i’ve seen Monica on TV, she comes across as highly intelligent and cultured person. So I have no doubt her children will be raised in a good home and with sense of morals.

    COngra’ts Monica. BTW, her fans have been waiting on her to release something new. Is she in the process of recording now or what?

  33. when will black people stop being so damn hypocrite so we could move on to better and bigger things?
    never that’s why we are what we are the entertainment race the white man’s clown :bag:

  34. Angela, u said Monica only being engaged 2 this man, he could leave her any minute w/ 2 kids, well married men leave their wives and kids behind all the time, that’s why divorces are on the rise. It’s not about applauding women for being single mothers, because it isn’t exactly something 2 brag about, but it’s simply about embracing your life and excepting it, and moving on to do your best. Everybody has choices and everybody knows the consequences of having unsafe sex. If not having sex is your thing well good 4 u, however don’t be bias and think that your way is the best and right way, cause everybody don’t feel that way. And believe it or not some women do prefer not to get married and even to have a child alone (women who get artificial stimulation) Shoot, the way some of these young girls wild out and feel they have nothing to live for, in a way having a baby saves their life! Bottom line young girls are always going to have babies, but what they don’t need is judgemental people, but people who are on their side to encourage them to still make something of their life whether it’s support from their mothers and families, are the community as an whole! :booty: πŸ™‚

  35. :dance1:
    I think you are all correct. There are many views to the same situation. For example how ask a number of people what they saw when they witnessed an accident chances are you will get several different views. This is no different.

    There is no law. It’s just basic common sense not to have babies before you’re married. It’s always better two have 2 parents(mother/father) instead of one, as long as the household is decent.

    I totally agree… I have been saying this for so long… There is so much birth control out there! Why aren’t these young women taking advantage! You have, monthly pills, shots, morning/after pill… I’m sorry, but you WILL NOT find me with babies without being married first.

  38. Oooh, this is a touchy subject I see. Seems to be the latest trend in Hollywood these days. I sometimes shake my head in disappointment too, then I catch myself. Being married and having children doesn’t always work out either. ‘Judge not, lest ye be judged’. I honestly have not really followed her career, and I only know of a couple of her songs. At least we have not seen her in jail or rehab or whatever. Even if we had, such is life. PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS FALL SHORT OF OUR EXPECTATIONS. Ultimately the only REAL role model (in my eyes) is Jesus Christ. People are just PEOPLE and they will live their lives as they see fit. We don’t have to like it, agree with it, or accept it. In the end, she does not answer to us, only God.
