Are many women now resentful?
I used to work with someone who had 3 sons when she was still relatively young. Now she says if she were to do it all over again, she'd rather be without children.
Having kids too young I think may rob you a little of your freedom or your chance to discover your own potential and do the things you always dreamed of doing. Once you have a child, that's it (at least for the first few years). You begin to put yourself on the back burner.
I think there is so much confusion out there now about a womans role. We are constantly been told that we can have it all, kids, a high flying career, husband and home, but in reality we cannot (well in my experiance anyway).
I would not say I am resentful, but I do wonder what path my life would have taken should I have opted for a career, rather than family life.
