38-year-old single mother of seven, pregnant with twins, demands better government housing

I saw this article about an unmarried woman, pregnant with twins, who already has 7 children from a variety of men. She is currently living in a 4-bedroom house paid for by taxpayers. She is angry because the government isn’t giving her enough money to pay for her lifestyle choices.

This article comes from the UK Daily Mail:

A 38-year-old mother-of-seven who is pregnant with twins is begging to be rehoused from her ‘hellish’ four-bedroom council flat which she says isn’t good enough for her.

[…]The single mother said: ‘My relationship with some of my children is at breaking point, we can’t keep living like this.

[…]’I just want to get out of this hell. I’d rather live anywhere else, as long as it is not in here. It has been really tough.

‘I’m feeling down every night and sometimes you just feel like giving up. But I just have to keep going for the sake of the kids.’

She can fix everything that’s gone wrong with a little more taxpayer money. That will make it unnecessary for her to choose men who commit before sex, and let her have the freedom to choose the “best” men for relationships.

After spending a month in various hotels, West Lothian Council found them the flat in Bathgate and they moved in on September 20.

But after moving into her new Bathgate property, Ms Burns complained that the flat did not come with a television…

She wasn’t even provided with a taxpayer-funded telly! How else to people get televisions except from welfare programs?

Anyway, how did this happen? Well, it happens because women are increasingly choosing men who are not willing to marry first, and using premarital sex and cohabitation to land them. Something that the previous generation of married women from 50 years ago would never have done.

The Daily Caller explains:

Unmarried couples are having roughly 40 percent of all births in the U.S., marking a trend that may be detrimental to the upbringing of those children.

For the first time in U.S. history, out-of-wedlock births in America are largely a result of cohabitation, according to the United Nations Population Fund 2018 State of World report released Wednesday. Single mothers had nearly 90 percent of out-of-wedlock births in 1968, but that number decreased to 53 percent in 2017, according to the Pew Research Center.

“Compared to children of married parents, those with cohabiting parents are more likely to experience the breakup of their families, be exposed to ‘complex’ family forms, live in poverty, suffer abuse, and have negative psychological and educational outcomes,” according to the Institute for Family Studies (IFS).

[…]Children with single parents have the highest rates of poverty followed by children living with unmarried, cohabiting parents, the IFS reported.

Between 2006 and 2010, 23 percent of births to married women were unintended while 51 percent of births to unmarried cohabiting women were unintended. That number rose to 67 percent for unmarried women not cohabiting.

Two-thirds of cohabiting parents split up before their child reaches age 12, while only a quarter of married parents divorce, according to an April 2017 Brookings Institution report.

The problem of fatherless children is getting worse. And taxpayers will be on the hook to pay for it – that’s what the story of the 38-year-old woman shows. Productive people have to pay when women are not persuaded to make better decisions about which men to have relationships with, and when to have sex.

My experience

I know three young women who are cohabitating right now. I have had a few conversations with them about what they are studying, what jobs they want to get, and what their plans for the future are.

All three of these women have never married, and are in their early 20s and attractive. Two of them have children. The live-in boyfriends are getting sex without having to commit first. The boyfriends (judging from photos) seem to have been chosen purely for looks. Tall, muscles, beards, tattoos, piercings, etc. Obviously, none of them is a Christian. There just isn’t anything in society telling young women that a Christian worldview matters in a relationship. And none of the men has a STEM degree, a career or savings -they’re too young to have those things to prove their ability to provide. But they’re still co-habitating, and get all the benefits of a wife without having to have proven themselves capable of the responsibilities, expectations and obligations of a husband.

Each of these women is spending the young and attractive period of her life in unstable relationships with men who think of sex as recreational, rather than something that is saved for inside the marriage covenant. If their past relationships fail, they will have a much harder time finding a good man. They will have sexual baggage. They will probably have children from another man. They will have bitterness and mistrust towards men. They will be selfish and unwilling to give to a future husband. The same women who will complain that no one will marry them at age 35 are the ones who could easily have had a marriage-ready man at age 25.

  1. At least she didn’t abort any of her children. I hope.

    So, there is something there. If she would raise them as Christians, her family might be able to compete with the Muslim horde. 🙂

    Lady of Reason is onto something here, as she usually is – if this Mom is just having children for welfare entitlements, then chances are those children are not well-treated.

    1. Probably on drugs and drink…Can really age you a ton! Draining her welfare money on that instead of her kids! Not much to wonder why her kids are at their breaking point 😡😡😡

    2. My thoughts exactly. The “hung out wet and rode hard” look. Drugs use and/or heavy smoking and drinking, and living a baby making machine out of wedlock lifestyle ravishes and decimates women, and takes a heavy toll. I see women like this daily in my job at a scrap metal yard. Desperate for their next crack rock, and with broods of children by different men. 30 year old women who look like they’re 80. No, she’s far from 38. Late 40s at the least. You’re correct, IMO, that we’re not getting the whole story here. The media, entertainment industry, and Hollywood love to glamorize single motherhood like a badge of honor. Feminized male managers in the workplace (I see this daily) white knight and enable single mommies to come in late, leave early, Be absent frequently, and shirk their duties or pawn them off on coworkers. Speaking up gets you a trip to HR, or worse, a trip to the unemployment line (been there/done that) as you’re not sympathetic to the “plight of the single mommy”. Poor life choices are not my problem, nor yours. No wonder men are not wanting to work anymore. Sorry for the rant.

  2. My mom was an OBGYN nurse (past-tense since she’s now retired), and she got to see a wide range of people.

    Among those, there were definitely women who were trying to take advantage of the system and they clearly understood that “having more kids” (even without taking good care of them) resulted in a higher handout. Clearly not the behavior one should be trying to encourage — obviously here, rewarding bad behavior. (In fact, many of these women were junkies and crackheads and alcoholics.)

    These women clearly understood birds and bees but obviously self-interest trumps even maternal instinct. :(

    I also see many “liberals”/progressives in the United States calling for broadening the definition of ‘family’ as well as benefits (e.g., those who are merely cohabitating/”in some kind of nebulous relationship/arrangement” should be afforded the same benefits), saying we’d be more ‘enlightened’ like Europe!

    Of course, they tend to overlook the data as you’ve pointed out:
    – cohabitating couples’ marriages have a higher tendency to dissolve as compared to non-cohabitating marriages
    – cohabitating couples’ relationships have a higher tendency to dissolve as relationships
    – much higher changes of children out of wedlock

    Add these three up and children out from these much less stable unions are more likely to suffer from various problems (not that we like the problems either).

    By removing the key assumption (marriages are highly beneficial for society and provide stability for families including children) and if a society were just to grant benefits to anyone, what prevents people from abusing the system?

    e.g., (not that I’d do this … I’m married)
    – “I fathered a kid, I claim paternity leave”
    – “My partner was impregnated by her previous partner, but I’m her current partner, I want to claim paternity leave”
    etc.

    Also … how does this remove any desire/value to get married if I can have all the benefits?

    If I were a non-Christian man, I’d have very little reason to get married and I’d try to find ways to achieve my goals without getting married.

  3. Something I see in this photo troubles me. It appears that at least three of her children are boys. I’ll wager that this scenario is broken lives, substance abuse, addiction, abject poverty, and eventual incarceration just waiting to happen. More boys to become cannon fodder or throw themselves on their swords. Single mothers are a curse on society.

    1. And the girls will end up like their mother. Heck, I would not be surprised if Mom was the one pimping them out.

      1. Sadly, you’re absolutely correct in your analysis. My late father used to say “an apple does not fall far from the tree”. These little girls will almost invariably become teen mommies, and will either pop out trophy bas***ds, or be a frequent customer of Planned Parenthood, all with the same ease as dropping a morning bowel movement. I pray some credible faith base will take up their cause for the best, but it’s the U.K., need I say more.
