  • My best friend decided to skip having a family and I used to think she'd regret it. Now we're in our forties and I see she really made a good choice for her lifestyle. Her career makes her really happy, she travels a lot and generally doesn't care for kids. Can't relate to them so I think people know if it's not right.

  • I think, "Good for them! The world is too populated anyways."

  • One of my friends says she doesn't want kids. She doesn't think she'll be a good mom. Of course, she's only in her early 20's so we'll see if that changes. I suspect she might end up pregnant, be it intentional or not.

  • My brother and his wife choose not to have children. It's fine. I mean, I'd like some nieces and nephews, but parenthood isn't for everyone. They like to travel and the run in marathons. They like their life. To each his own.

  • My aunt decided not to have children but only because she has a rare form of herpies that she got as a teen. That and she never really liked the idea of being a mom, she loves being an aunt and great aunt though.

  • I see nothing wrong with it. My aunt & uncle chose not to have kids of their own - all their neices and nephews (and great-neices & -nephews) are their kids! They are both career people, and live a very full life. They are very happy, loving people - she's my favorite aunt! It's their choice. My sister will likely never have kids either, she just really doesn't want them - she loves my kids, but doesn't really want her own.

  • It is her choice, and not every woman has to become a mom to be complete as a woman. She is either way.

  • I think 'It is their life, their choice' and not my business. I have quite a few family members(great aunts/uncles as well as my sis) that are childless.
