We have, we have a good relationship and sex life. I know that if a child was part of our unit, it would possibly spoil the dynamics. I would be too tired, he would want sex quite frequently, I will more than likely turn him down, he may then go out and get some elsewhere etc. I know this may come across as selfish. I have never had a maternal feeling EVER. I have read on many posts and forums that couples who have kids, wish they had more sex, it is usually the men that wished they got more sex from their partners. The women will sometimes moan about the fact their men are sex mad. They are not sex mad, they just have needs. When we first got our puppy, it killed our sex life a bit because he would wake us up in the middle of the night or in hours before we are supposed to wake. Now, he is still months old and he has adapted and sleeps through the night with no disturbances! We have a very hot sex life, we are at it about 6 times a week. We do not get bored of eachother. We have been together for 2.5 years and both have decided that we do not want children. I do not think we will regret it. If I wanted to be a mother, I would have been one by now. Are you child free because of the similar reasons?
