The Baffling Question
What Bill Cosby is trying to say is why do these married couples have children. One reason is to carry on the family name, but other than that its up to the individuals to choose. Whether they want to trade there long quiet evenings of leisure for nights of changing dirty dippers and settling meaningless arguments between siblings. The decision to have children rest solely on the parents. Some people see having kids as the thing married couples do, others might not want to have any children at all. People have children to fill an empty void in there lives that they feel only children can. The question is somewhat baffling to people who don't have children, but when kids come into there lives the reason becomes more clear.
