There is a widely held belief among people that nowadays we are able to have decisions on our own. In my opinion, I obviously tend towards to this point of view, advocating with some reasons listed as follow.
On the one hand, with the significant increasing of technological and scientific achievements, we are likely to have various choices in many aspects of life. Development in science and technology could easily pave the way for our communities to make numbers of decisions in entertainment and life. Besides, the impact of scientific and technological inventions in terms of construction and furniture could facilitate our choosing of habitat. As a result, it is more convenient for us to opt for wide range of leisure activities in lieu of suffering from many inconveniences like we used to be in the last few decades.
On the other hand, families and societies, in general, have they open-mindedness of career and marriage. This means that women nowadays absolutely have their right of being autonomous in choosing jobs or partner. In the past, for instance, men were considered to be the ones who bared responsibility for the whole family. Women, in contrast, had to stay home and played as a role of housewife and also took the duty of raising up their kids. However, modern women todays can definitely be as essential as men in many situations. Moreover, they are able to have their own decision in getting married with the one they choose.
For the aforementioned reasons, I concur with the belief that people these days can have various choices in many fields of life.
