Sex and the City writer regrets putting career over family

You’ll be seeing a lot more of this with this generation.

Her best-selling book and the racy TV series it inspired taught a generation of women that they could ‘have it all’.

But Sex and the City creator Candace Bushnell, 60, has admitted that she regrets choosing a career over having children as she is now ‘truly alone’.

The TV series starred Sarah Jessica Parker as a writer in New York who famously chooses her independence over motherhood.

Miss Bushnell, pictured, divorced her husband – ballet dancer Charles Askegard – in 2012 and said it made her realise the importance of starting a family.

The former sex columnist, who is worth around £18million, told the Sunday Times: ‘When I was in my thirties and forties, I didn’t think about it.

‘Then when I got divorced and I was in my fifties, I started to see the impact of not having children and of truly being alone. I do see that people with children have an anchor in a way that people who have no kids don’t.’

The article neglects to mention if this woman has any regret whatsoever about glamorizing a vapid and ultimately empty lifestyle to an entire generation of women.  Culture is upstream from politics.  Who knows how many women were affected subconsciously to live the single, NYC, YOLO life because of this show.  We can say with a certainty though that the ones who decided to not have children because of it will most certainly regret it when they get older too.  It is less certain how many will realize it was because of the people they chose to follow and the choices they made.  No doubt some will just blame men.  The evil one tempts with material, temporary pleasure in the moment.  The more people pull away from God and traditional Western values the worse society will become.
