Also, a very good point.
It’s not really, sure there a tons of other things that make up a relationship, but if you want to have children there aren’t many other ways to do this. Children are very important factors to some peoples relationship wants and shouldn’t receive hate if this influences someone’s preference on who and who not they will decide to be in a long term relationship
You can have a family without biologically doing so. With regards to the rest of your statement, I respectfully disagree. Beause I don't think it's very healthy to go into a relationship with someone based on whether or not you will procreate with them. If it's a long term relationship, then that's a different story. But speaking as a woman, I'm pretty sure a lot of woman would be scared away if it was known at the beginning of the relationship that the guy was thinking about kids with her.
No it's not. Because desiring something and it becoming a subjective reality are not the same thing. You can decide you want to be in a long term relationship with someone way sooner than the other person is ready for it.
Honestly, I'm tapping out. Because I know I won't change my mind. And I'm not really concerned or under the illusion that I'm going to change anyone else's mind. And this is getting too serious for an otherwise silly government simulation game. Thanks everyone for disagreeing in a respectful way.
Thank you for stepping away before it got too heated; I hope others follow your example. However, we have a rule against double posting to prevent crowding in the RMB. If you could edit your previous post with the information from this post it would be much appreciated.

AFTER intense negotiations between various Tussian Kings and the Emperor, the armored divisions promised to the Biggonian government are en route. TIA expects this to turn the tides of the war in favor of the Biggonian government as Tussian armor is expected to face little counters from the Biggonian rebels limited armor and anti-tank capabilities.

Surprising offensive from the Biggonian Caliphate
For the first time in a few months, the Biggonian Caliphate has launched a major offensive action into Imperial territory. Importantly, they were able to cross the Seltsamian-Tallandic border, and enter the Imperial heartlands. Due to the Caliphate not having fought for several months, it means their forces are much more healthy, and alongside the fact that most Imperial troops are deployed against the commonwealth, means that they have been able to easily overrun their enemy. Using a mix of converted civilian cars and captured military surplus, they have launched an effective Blitzkrieg assault.
The Biggonian Empire is currently scrambling troops off their front lines with the Commonwealth to match this incursion, and this has left the other fronts understaffed. Particularly, the front around the key city of Shurdorf. With the recent news that Tussia will send additional reinforcements to Biggonia, the Commonwealth has deemed it necessary to capture Shurdorf as soon as possible, before the window closes. Therefore a general order has been issued to step up the offensive actions against the city, with fighting inside the urban parts itself becoming more intense. Jakob Premmel, the regent of Grenzland, has continuously stated his intention never to surrender the city, however with casualties mounting and the commonwealth making increased progress, this position is beginning to look untenable.

Surviving members of the Order of the Temple of Apollo file case in Constitutional Court
Today, a group of members of the Order of the Temple of Apollo have filed a case in the Constitutional Court, alleging that the laws applied against the Order in December 2021 constituted a violation of religious freedom.
Constitutional Convention I
Basement of a Bar in Athenia
Twenty men sat around a table in the basement of a bar in Athenia. The men were various representatives chosen to lead the constitutional convention of the Tussian Republican Army. This meeting, and the doubtless many to follow, would determine the constitution the TRA was attempting to implement. Out of the twenty, a few would become the most influential.
The obvious of the influential ones would be Pavlos Michelakakis, the leader of the Hellen Workers’ Liberation Front. He was one of the founding members of the TRA, and held the most cards due to his large following within the TRA. Pavlos, obviously, was part of the Sturmist wing of the TRA.
The next would be Emmanuel Bohme. He is a charismatic speaker, and one of the most outspoken critics of the Tussian government. Emmanuel was one of the older members at 57 years old, and he spent the last twelve years living within Artevenia as an asylum seeker. Emmanuel was the figurehead of the Republican wing of the TRA, seeking an equal democracy within Tussia.
David Manz is one of the most infamous terrorists within Tussia. He’s been found to having led multiple terrorist attacks against the Tussian government, and he actually partook in the raid on the Athenian police station. He was a leader of the small but vocal “Anarchisten” branch, a breakaway branch from the HWLF who are avid anarcho-communists.
Eliya Sommer is another Republican, however his stance is not like the others. Sommer is a Capo of the Osrelian Mafia, specifically the Hofer family which is one of the largest organized crime families in Lands End. The Hofer family and other organized crime families have started funding and funneling weapons to the TRA in hopes of getting important figures on their payroll, for lack of a better word, so the mafia can become powerful within Tussia.
There are a few other members whomst are influential amongst those in the meeting, but currently the men described are the ones who matter the most. All-in-all there were five Sturmist-aligned, two Anarchisten, five mafia, and eight Republican-aligned representatives.
Bohme was the first of the members to speak, “So, here we are. This is going further than I expected, if I am being honest. I did not expect to see this kind of growth within my lifetime. Now, this will be the first meeting of many,” Bohme would proceed to stand up, “with this meeting we shall outline a charter for the rights of the people. What are your proposals?" He pulled out a notebook with a pen and looked at the other men.
Pavlos was one of the first to speak, “within our new constitution should reside an amendment which protects the right of workers to unionize and to work in a safe work environment.”
Bohme wrote it down, “the right to unionize should definitely be seen as a constitutional right. Here are my proposals for additions for the constitution.”
Bohme took out multiple folders, one for each of the men, with a list of various possible additions to the constitution for the rights of the people, with the list including: the right to freedom of speech, right to privacy from unjust searches, freedom of religion/to worship, the equal rights of all people residing within Tussia, the right to own a firearm, and various others.
The men all read this and Manz spoke, “we should each take a copy home and write down notes on this and convene later. This will take time and, from what it looks like, we will have plenty before we have the ability to voice our demands and have negotiating power.”
Bohme nodded, “vote to adjourn the meeting, anyone say aye?”
All of the men voted aye and the meeting was adjourned.
Not really, idk, it just feels kinda like you're basing relationships on the female reproductive system in that case
Status of the Tussian defenders in Shurdorf:
Due to the strategic importance of the city, most of the Tussian forces are residing in Shurdorf in its defense.
2nd Tussian Rangers (3,000 men)
1/3rd of the 3rd Hellen Infantry Division (~2,000 men)
3rd Osrelian Armored Division
13th Tussian Mechanized
2/3rd of the 3rd Hellen Infantry Division (~4,000 men)
1/3rd of the 2nd Tussian Infantry Division (~2,000 men)
Defending the rest of the city is the remaining forces of the 2nd Tussian Infantry Division.
In the air are about 35 dedicated multi-role planes, 30 close air support planes, 5 heavy attack helicopters, and 20 attack helicopters.
The reinforcements expected in two weeks are the 15th Tussian Armored Division, 9th Tussian Infantry Division, and the 2nd Osrelian Armored Division. Tussian forces still have high spirits but are gradually getting tired.

Kath delegate has memory loss, forgets there's already an investigation ongoing?
During the debates over Spokanite human rights violations, the Kath delegate called for an investigation into the accusations against Spokane by multiple neutral parties on the matter, when other delegates interjected reminding the Kath delegate of the investigation that has already been ongoing for the last month.
Arstotskianian delegate shows possible proofs of Crimes Against Humanity by the Spokanite Armed Forces
The original thing that flared up the massive debate in the INTC chambers was the Arstotskianian delegate showing a tape to the chambers which had the following contents, as a warning the following may be disturbing:
A radio crackles.
“Can anyone hear me…Spokane armed forces…mass crackdown…Spokanite civillians…attacks…gunfire…”
The radio crackles to the point you can’t make much sense out of the transmission.
Spokanite delegate hiding something?
The Spokanite delegate, with the offer of the Arstotskianian delegate putting on the tape to show to the chambers would begin to rapidly request for it not to be placed on, until the Kath delegate requested for the tape to be shown to the chamber, and the Arstotskianian delegate remarking "If this means what I think it does, it is a very much international matter."
