Like i said, for lack of better tools!

Women empowering came to Britain as a aftermath of the famine and the Malthus hypothesis.
and Forced emigration to Australia!

The people in poor society don't have much hope for their future. With plenty of time to spend, they're more close to people around them, especially their spouse. So, with more interaction, better understanding and love, couples make more babies.


For the poors it s not so much that time does it for them.  Much of China is still an agraian based society, and in the farm, the urge to procreate is always great, traditional and rational; cheap farm labors.  And I doubt they will have much free time outside of  what they have to put in in making a living.

But what little quality time with families which I take it you must mean, perhaps that will help too.  A happy woman makes a healthy brood and all that.  Although a sense of duty can not be overlooked either.

Theres rightly or wrongly also an impression that city folks are generally more remote and selfish in their relationship.  Thus an easy association between rich city and low fertility.

The need for labor on the farm is but one incentives for having more children.  Others include tradition, how people have always learnt in terms of living from one generation to another.  Before the ideas of modern living and supposedly high education stunt and dull this impulse.  

And when I use the word cities, it is in  very restricted sense.  That which embodies enjoyment of modern urban amenities and a desire for material departure from a rural mentality.  Those happily procreating Indians may be living in cities, but perhaps the cities are not living in them.  Squatters slum really dont count as true urban living although its common in many urban environments.  Access to education, career advancement and good living are still denied to many.  In their steads, or rather without their distractions those people  still cling to the old ways brought along from the countryside.

Many factors account for fertility, and I was just pointing out  it would be inadequate to pin it on time alone.  And did it in the most of solemn manners.
