While it is true that women are the ones who choose who will be the father of her children, things do not always. Many times they have to settle for someone else who always wanted (read: they loved), either because he was engaged to someone else, or because the parents of one or other objected strenuously, or because there was another interested in the young made a financial offer that she could not despise, pressured by her family.
