As terrible as this whole pandemic is has anybody stopped and thought about the implications of having a world-wide lock down in regards to a new baby-boom?

I mean, if the light go out in a big city for a few days you can observe a small baby boom 9 months later.

So with most people having to stay home in this pandemic, can we expect a massive global birth wave in 9 months?

Peace

It makes sense, driving around today seeing the empty streets I thought the same thing.

Ton's of babies coming in 9 months or so. Nothing wrong with that, we've been lagging behind replacement rate for a long time.

Have wondered the same. Maybe also a boomers 3.0 nine months after the lockdown is lifted for all the single people who couldn't get out to 'socialise' too.

They're supposed to be working at home, not making babies.

But, as long as there isnt a divorce boom to go with that baby boom, okay.
I mean. Lock two people up together who have grown used to having their own careers and doing their own thing long term, add in the stress of a pandemic/economic meltdown..
Well.. it might be more like make up sex than let's have a baby sex followed by, oh we're free to leave the house??
See ya in divorce court!!

Do we really need more people in the world? I think we're overpopulated as it is.

Today, the marriage rate is @ 26%. Compare that to 36% for Generation X, 48% for Baby Boomers, and 65% for the Greatest generation. Millennials are putting marriage off or avoiding it altogether at higher rates than ever. When millenials do decide to get married, most are in their late 30s/early 40s, when women are less fertile. The exception are millenials who marry foreign women, like women from Russia/Ukraine, who are in their late 20s/early 30s & who are more fertile. Around 50% of my male friends are single. Of the 50% who are married, half of them are married to young women from Russia/Ukraine & the others are married to American women in their late 30s/early 40s.

I find it funny how many American women have to actually be mothers right now, while schools are closed, instead of acting like men, like they usually do. In the natural world, women are mothers, while men do all the work to support the family. Teachers are also losing control, which is hard for control freaks like teachers. As long as schools/daycares remain closed, women with children are forced to act like mothers.

Social distancing has consequences related to dating & forming of relationships/marriages. I see less people having babies these days vs past history. The game has changed for everyone but especially for women who want children & simultaneously want to continue to behave like men. Women who have or want to have children will need to find men who have the resources/skills to support them, while they're home being good mothers & taking care of their children.

Yeah it all went to (SNIP) when they invented feminism and go getters,

Nowadays you come home, there is no dinner ready, the house is a mess, the children live in filth.

Then we have an army of even angrier feminist single mothers running in the streets.

So in 13 years, we'll have "Quaran-teens"?

I’ll call them Covids. As in “Goin’ down to da Covid mine to pick from all the Covids.” When it comes to finding a worker, cook, housekeeper, etc.
