Why are women just expected to have babies/raise a family?

Anonymous
When I was younger I was even told I couldn’t do certain stuff because “my husband wouldn’t like it” or if I did something out of place it was almost always “pray for your husband”. Why aren’t women just encouraged to go to school or do something beneficial with themselves. Not to mention, the women in my family don’t even have that good of an experience with men at all. My dads non existent, he left and never pays child support and my grandpa used to beat my grandma.

Men scare me and I know I never want to get married but when I tell my mom that it makes her angry. I’m wondering if it’s just a cultural difference cause she grew up in the Caribbean and immigrated when she was older? But I’ve heard of other girls online from different backgrounds talk about the same thing so it seems kind of universal for girls.
