I DO think you misunderstand the stance re the familia numerosa as these families ARE positively discriminated in favour of which tells me that this is what the state wishes to promote.

I have ABSOLUTELY no problem whether you are black or white, Latvian or lesbian, a single-parent or in a 2,3 suburban married relationship. I am NO WAY going to discriminate against you. You are entirely carbon-neutral to me. (Just tell me you are not an estate agent or a Mail reader LOL)
I don’t particularly want to wear my domestic situation on my sleeve, as you put it (too messy . Mind you, at least he is out of nappies now.). But when I read something that I feel may be prejudice against women in my situation, I feel compelled to challenge it and talk from the reality of my life rather than hypothetical situations, which most people tend to do.
Finally (never mind a Daily Mail reader, I was beginning to think you were a politician, being so evasive...), you explained a little bit more about your comment from your own experience, so I can understand the background to your comment. But my original point was only – we single mothers are not all the same! That was all.
I know the positive discrimination of large families is promoted, was just saying the changing reality of Spain needs to deal with that changing reality in some way. Nice to see they are encouraging us all to go out and get pregnant, not once but again and again! No I am not an estate agent either, but I know a man who is...and he is a very very nice man.

Well I was responding to Steve's comments re social rights and wrongs, which is why I brought that bit up. Without wearing my domestic situation on my sleeve, as Steve put it, I am not a person to take conception of a child lightly, I didnt then and I wouldnt now. There are a lot of things going on in society in the UK that are very worrying. I dont know which part you mean is a fact, the benefits or girls having babies as "meal tickets"? And is it a statistical fact or an anecdotal fact, what's your source? Its not for me to like or dislike. I dont really mind either way whether its true or not, though I think it is sad if it is. Dont get me wrong, I dont doubt that there are some girls who think single motherhood would be a cushy lifestyle but I think most of them do it out of naiivety and romanticism rather than being cold and calculating. Am just questioning if its as high a percentage as papers like the Daily Mail make out. Personally, I pity anyone who is deluded enough to think single motherhood is a meal ticket cos there in for a rude awakening! Benefits or not. Maybe showing them some of the video nasties I saw at my antenatal classes before they got pregnant would put them off. They scared me to death!

Well I would quite happily kiss the big toe nails of the guy who invented the epidural, as I am eternally grateful to him for creating such excellent pain relief. No, they didnt have that in the cave man days, the women just gripped the necks of their he-man tightly instead. Oh, for the good old days!
