Have you ever wondered what you life would have been like had you not had any children?

Just a random thought. Do you ever think about it?
I know that it wouldn't be quite as hectic but I can't imagine it any differently.

  • Yes. I would either be in jail or dead by now. My life was a wreck before I got pregnant with my 1st.

  • yes and it would have sucked. i'd probably still be stuck in a controlling, verbally abusive relationship with the father of my 1st. back then i was young, immature and stupid and love really had no meaning until i had my baby and met my husband. getting pregnant with my first was a real eye opener for me and in some ways i think of her as the angel who saved me from going to a destructive path.

  • i have and I don't think I'd have advanced too far in my life, sad to admit. I think I'd still be living in an apartment by myself probably having gotten as far as one can get as a secretary career-wise and still struggling with money. I never was overly ambitious.

  • I would still be a child myself. Not taking on any responsibilities.

  • It would have been lonely. Kids r a gift from God,adopted of bio. Adoption is an act of God Bio is a act of circumstance. No bashing please. It is my opinion. That is why we r on here. Thank u!!!! BTW it would be very inmature and low to bash somebodys opinion.
    thank u!!!!

  • Yes, I wonder sometimes. I had a lot going for me before kids. I pictured being successful. But I love my kids dearly.

  • Yes, but I imagined a life where I may have been more successful in a career, but my life would be empty.
