Agree with this 100%. It's also my observation that people who chose not to have kids tend to be immature.  There are of course exceptions to this.


Selfish AND immature.

All I had to do was breed?


Big difference between breeding and being a parent but you seem to lack the maturity or intelligence to see that.  If you don't want to have kids that's your choice and it's probably for the best that those who are so selfish and immature don't have kids.


You put yourself on quite the pedestal don't you?

Not at all. I have many faults.  It's my opinion that people who chose not to have kids are generally selfish and immature but there are exceptions.  Sorry that makes you and several others upset.

I would love to stay here and have an ongoing internet debate but I'm taking 2 of my kids out for dinner.

There are a lot of people who can't afford to have kids and, wisely, DON'T.

Unfortunately, these people are vastly outnumbered by the people who can't afford to have kids but do it anyway.

I have no kids

And I admit, it was because I was selfish when I was young.  Now I'm too old for kids, and still selfish

I really do not care whatsoever if someone else doesn't want to have kids though, who cares.

It's their life, they should live it how they see fit.

Who said anything about upsetting me?  How do you know if I decided to not have kids?  

Do I have kids?  No.  But I was raised by a man and woman who didn't have me until they were in their mid and early 30's, and already senior NCO's in the Air Force.  I am 28, and while I have a great job, I am only about a year out of college, and IMO it is easier to make an argument that it is selfish to have kids before really establishing yourself than it is to say "it is selfish to not have kids."

But hey, you can call, or anyone else that doesn't have kids, selfish.  Because in my book, making assumptions about people you don't know behind a keyboard makes you douche. And I would rather be known as "selfish" than that.

14.

Just kidding. I think he was about two.

Me? I can't wait to have kids! I can't wait to be able to teach them how to drive my manual Jeep, tie a fishing hook, shoot a bow/gun, laugh at them on their first date, and just enjoy watching them grow and love life.

My parents showed me what amazing people they are, so I want to give what I received to another generation.

This kind of shit doesn't happen, unless a parent implicitly allows it. That's all I've got to say about that.

Its not about letting go of your childhood... Its about caring and being a part of something greater than yourself.

If someone had shitty parents and uses it as an excuse later...bullshit.  Own the problem and fix yourself.  It is a choice to cling to a fucked up childhood like it is your woobie of an excuse for being a fucked up adult.  

Hard time create hard men...not emotional crybabies who can't get past their childhood.  Some of the greatest men I have known were the product of horrid childhoods.  They ensured the cycle stopped by being a great father and husband.

You don't know how much some of us envy you.  I never was the kind of person to get emotional at weddings until we went to the niece's.  For some reason seeing my BIL walk her down the aisle and give her away hit me with the thought "You'll never get to do that" and it hit me that there are so many "normal" human experiences about having and raising kids I've never had and will never get to have.

I thought I could deal with our not being able to have kids.  But as time comes around to where we could be grandparents, I think that's hurting worse than not having kids.  That's when the feeling of being a complete failure at the most basic function of all life on Earth hits.

Don't reproduce, you've failed to pass on your unique traits and you are an evolutionary failure.  Maybe it's age, or a sense of mortality due to health issues, but the pain of the "no kids emptiness" really does hit home and hurt deeply.  I guess admitting failure adds to the hurt of no kids and makes it worse.

Hug those kids and love on them some extra for those of us who never got to.
