Story plot

Jane the Virgin is about the titular character Jane, a devout young woman, who becomes pregnant after she gets artificially inseminated mistakenly by a doctor at the time of checkup. The vow of her maintaining her virginity till her marriage gets broken. Adding more to the worse, the sperm that has been inserted into her cervix via artificial insemination is of the man who has been married and has survived cancer. Also, he has been her former teenage crush. Jane works in a hotel, of whom this man is the owner. The story is set in Miami. 

There is one big issue for Jane which is coping up with her heart, as she had a crush on him. The satirical romantic comedy show puts the main emphasis upon the struggle Jane goes through in choosing between her investigating boyfriend or the father of her child. The story plot has much more to it. When the series moves further, it shows Jane’s child turning into a toddler, plus her career as a writer also moves ahead. The members in the family also start developing plotlines related to health issues, not allowing her to settle in a foreign destination, plus lecturing on self-discovery. 

The main challenge before Jane is balancing her regular life with her motherhood. She has to carry the sole responsibility of bringing up her child. Jane is very religious by nature, and with that her upbringing can be defined as tough, and it is great to see how she keeps trying and applying the rules in the household, while she struggles to pretend that everything is normal in her life, but it is not in reality.

Not just a Jane show

In Jane the Virgin series, showcases problems Jane is encountering in bringing up her child, and how she is making efforts to advance her writing career.
