A Danger Signal.
The size of families in this country has decreased alarmingly in
the last few generations. Each year the number of "old bachelors"
and "old maids" increases. This bodes ill for the future of this
In the pioneer days the "old bachelor" and the "old maid" were
the exception, now they seem almost'to be the mile. In studying
history one finds that in the early days the family with seven or
eight and even fourteen or fifteen children was not unusual and one
has to go back only a few generations to find that it was no uncom
mon thing for girls to be married when they were in their teens and
boys before they were of age. And this was true in the best fami
lies, the people prominent in all walks of life of their day.
Now what do we find ? Many people of the later generations
never marry and with each generation the number seems to in
crease. With each generation the age at which its members marry
is older. With each generation the number of children in a family
is smaller than the preceeding generation until now a family with
four or five children is considered a very large one. We doubt if
the families of the wealthy of this generation will average over two
children and of the well to do and those in moderate circumstances
over three children. It is unusual now except among the very poor
to find many children.
What is the cause of the small family ? What will be the re
sult if this condition continues ?
We believe that the cause is largely due to the selfishness of
the people of this generation. We, and by "we" we mean both
men and women, are lovers of ease and comfort and hesitate to
assume duties that may interfere with our ease and comfort.
Things which were luxuries to our fathers and mothers have become
necessities to us. Each generation demands more than the preceed
ing generation. Men hesitate to marry because it costs so much to
support a wife and children. They have expensive habits and tastes,
which they feel are necessary for their happiness and which they
are therefore not willing to give up ; they would want their wife to
have just as good clothes, just as many comforts as her father fur
nished her and fear she would be unhappy, if she did not have them
They know that unmarried they can live comfortably on what they
are making and are afraid to assume the responsibilities of married
Women have largely the same view point as the men. A girl
has a comfortable home ; dresses well ; can entertain her friends,
go to parties, the theater, take pleasure trips and has few respon
sibilities. She will argue, "Why should I marry a man who can
not give me as good a home and the comforts I now have. Why
give up the certainty for the uncertainty. I am having a good
time. If I marry I will assume many duties and cares and have to
work harder than I do now and probably have less." The many
new fields that have opened to women in recent years have also
made her more independent.
To the- man if he marries each child is an additional expense,
requires an increased income or the sacrifice of some pleasure. To
the woman each child means pain and suffering, additional cares
and duties and the giving up of social pleasures for a considerable
If this condition continues the result must inevitably mean our
decay as a nation, unnaren are necessary n we are to nave men
and women and these children must come from homes where they
are well nutured and cared for if we are to lead among the nations
of the world.
Nature intended men and women to marry and have children.
The first and highest duty of a man is to be a husband and father
and to provide a home for his wife and children. The noblest call
ing for a woman is to be a wife and mother and to do her share
towards making the home provided for her happy and contented.
If our social, economic and educational systems make men and
women afraid to take up the duties of married life or if they do
marry have only one or two or no children then they must be
changed if this nation is to prosper.
