Let’s Discuss the Theme of the Series
The Showrunners and Makers have chosen a significant and discoverable theme on MotherhoodMotherhood. Embracing MotherhoodMotherhood is one of the proudest yet challenging moments. Feminism hasn’t been accomplished in incorporating the concept and notion of MotherhoodMotherhood.
Particularly in America, most women have to choose between MotherhoodMotherhood and Career. Of course, things are harder as women feel the discomfort and difficulty raising their kids during their work.
On the other hand, for French Women, the scope gets even wider as they have a vast support system which makes them advantageous and reliable when it comes to Career Options and going ahead in their Career.
One of the characters in the Series faces similar guilt and dilemma regarding Career and Motherhood. Though she hasn’t sacrificed her Career, her husband makes her feel guilty constantly. It is the support that has been talked about. If the husband himself would not take responsibility for the infant and let his wife work, what’s the point of being in such a marriage.
Even though it is not logical and humane to leave the kid alone, being a mother also comes with a bundle of responsibilities. What is more reliable and durable is to divide responsibilities.
Apart from the theme of MotherhoodMotherhood, the Comedy Drama Series “On The Verge” is about religion, politics, education, and race. Talking about the tone of the Series, it is a culmination of Comedy, Sacrifice, Guilt, Drama, Emotional, and sometimes more focused on the characters. One of the Cast members even mentioned that each episode would show us our different perspectives towards any character.
