How do you feel about women who don't want children? *EDIT #2-Why do you think they do not want children?*

How do you feel about (if you even have an opinion about it) women who have made the conscious decision not to have children?

 

EDIT #1
I have to say I am actually really suprised to hear so much positive feedback. The reason I asked the question is that DH and I were at a family dinner last week and my SIL who just turned 23 was being questioned about when she was going to "settle down and start a family" and she just flat out said "I don't plan on having children-but I'll get married when I meet the right man". Her parents were totally shocked and upset with her, I'm really proud of her for knowing what she wants.

EDIT #2
Okay how about a different spin on this. Why do you think some women do not want/have decided not to have children?

Nothing wrong with making that decision. Children aren't for everyone.

I don't understand it. 

But I also don't care.

I think they have made the decision they feel is best for them.

I think they are smart. If I had been less careless with my life, I never would have had kids. I am happy that I have them now, dont get me wrong. But I can appreciate someone who knows what they want in life and takes the necessary steps to achieve it.

I don't really feel anything about it. It's not something I care about enough to develop feelings about.

That that's fine? I don't really think about it...its their life, not mine, and as long as they're happy, that's what matters :)
