    Like, it's supposed to be fundamental. All I can see is so many vast problems stacked up by politicians, their moral failures, that although people see me as missing out if I don't do it, I feel the opposite- I look at the shallow narcissism of life, my mate just broke from his wife and three kids, lifes about showing off online etc, societty has mnay problems. I actually feel a huge peace and relief about no having them, especially in the UK, and I will try to leave another legacy, because I care about society a lot. I've gotten out of this enforced conformity and can see the route I would have been on and the pain of it.

    Honestly, i had the same thoughts a few years ago but a lot has changed since, i'm more mature now. Having a nice family is one of the gratest things anyone could ever get, and it's not really possible without children. You can get a nice girlfriend, wife, money, career, but at the end of the day, you'll feel lonely.

    It's stupid to involve politics and problems with society in this. The world will always be ****ed-up one way or another, you'll always have problems. It's not really a sound argument against having children.

    You sound rather idealistic about the finances, stresses, problems and all of it

    If everyone would wait for the things to be idealistic, no one would ever have children. Yes, it tough for most of the people (financially and otherwise), but that's how it is. It was never supposed to be easy.

    no its not unusual at all. nor is it selfish to not want them either. and i'm tired of people trying to make out that something must be wrong with us for wanting to live the good life instead of having kids and spending our lives complaining about them afterwards like 90% of the population do!

    you only think its weird because society has forced that view upon you. that you must be weird, shallow, narcissistic or selfish to not want to settle down and have kids. well **** those people. I always find that its the most bitter of parents who tend to use those words on me. trying to make me feel bad because my life is better and easier than theirs because i don't have the burden of having to look after and pay for a bunch of snotty, smelly, screaming, ungrateful brats. so they try to shame you into having the same life of misery because they are not happy therefore they want everyone else to be as miserable as them

    If having kids really isn't what you want and you are fine with that decision, of course you are going to feel happy and relieved about it. I don't want kids and I feel the same. Wanting kids isn't for everyone and that's OK, whatever your reasons

    No

    If you're happy, then be happy about it. I want children, and will have them.
