YES THIS! I'm so exhausted of hearing that I'm reaching my prime (I'm 29) and I need to settle down with anybody and have children already. I was in a relationship where my partner was consistently manipulating and gaslighting me and my mother still pushed me to have his kids just so that I could provide her with grandchildren and appear normal to the rest of the family. My mental health and happiness does not matter, the environment and future for the children does not matter, I'm a woman and that is my job. Ugh.
