what do you think of them? my brother and his wife have decided to never have kids. she's good with our kids and my brother loves them, but they say they don't want their own, they like travelling and doing what they want blah blah blah.

it just seems so selfish to me.

Doesn't bother me at all. I personaly think they are missing out on something amazing but it's whatever makes them happy. Better than them having a kid they ignore or resent.

Idk. It's better for them not to have kids if they don't want them.

Sounds like they've thought it through. I wouldn't call it selfish.

It is more selfish to have children just to make someone else happy.

LOL. Selfish how? It's not selfish to prevent bringing unwanted children into this world. It's not for everyone.

You call it selfish, I call it smart.

It doesn't bother me. And I don't think it's selfish at all. People aren't REQUIRED to have children. I think it's great that they know what they want and aren't letting people pressure them into doing something they don't want to do.

I don't think it's selfish not to have kids. I wouldn't feel fulfilled without them but it doesn't mean everyone should feel that way.

They shouldn't have children they don't want. It's one thing to be good with kids and another to parent them.
