On the plus side gender equality is here, on the down side (I understand the vulnerability and honest aspect of being open) is it a not objectifying a human being that states they can only be one-dimensional?
Parents do not have the luxury of time, and have restrictions on energy. So one side is that they have less value to a person that needs more, and on the other it also requires that the person that is single be of higher value.
Life is about a journey, one either partners up and rides into the sunset and does things together, or else they don’t.
If a person does not find value in family and relationships, then they should steer clear of those that do value it. It is a natural and good thing to realize this.
