Knocked up at 14 years old....sad but true.

Recommended Posts

So it was Friday the 10th and we had to take the little guy down to the local clinic for his shots, which are one in each leg of what I don't know but hopefully something that will be good for him.  Whilst waiting I notice this cute young girl (from the boobs up) sitting on the other row of seats in front and next to a lad that was 15 or 16.  She got up and walked around and she had a baby bump!  The baby bump would suggest she is 5 months gone.  I said to the wife "how old is she?"  and she said 14....maybe 15.  Crazy huh!  And I am sure condoms are not to expensive at the local pharmacy.....probably free at the same clinic!  So here is a girl who's life is going to be less than ideal with a guy who maybe less than ideal and to top it off if he leaves school to support the girl and the baby his career choices will be lump bags of fertiliser at the local ag store, work for a mango picking contractor or live with the parents and work on the family farm.  Sad but true.

 

Today, Saturday, we are at Nong Young market and it's mud and slush everywhere so the wife says "Wait on the concrete next to the flower sellers and I'll come back here".   I did!  Looking around I see many pretty young faces walk by.  Not super fancy dressers but girl's that would look good in fancy dresses.  I wondered to myself how many would end up pregnant and locked into a life with no great future.  I guess it all depends on the slick young Thai guy on the hotted up Wave to dazzle her with his charm, wit and slick hair style....or not.

 

The point I want to make is, at least here in the country, you cannot change peoples thinking or their habits in one or 2 decades.  There are many in fact that fall asleep in their hammocks dreaming of old Siam.   The buffalo where plentiful and the women went topless!  Even my wife remembers the buffalo before the 2 wheeled tractor came along....you have to go further back for the topless women!

Nothing new here,happens everywhere...many times with the parents knowledge/consent.....don,t forget when those siblings grow up they will be expected to send money back home for them......children here are considered the same as a pension in other countries :whistling:

Sad but true , happens in every country , in some countries though young girls get pregnant , free health care , accomodation etc.   Luck of the drawer I guess.

A lady I knew in the '60s used to say ' Better late then pregnant '. She also said ' If you can't be good be good at it '.  Lovely lady , Iris was her name .

So here is a girl who's life is going to be less than ideal

These are the type of girls that after the bf left her, will be working in a bar, and if lucky picked up by an older farang who maybe marry her. Everybody happy, including her parents. :thumbsup:
