Sorry for the long title, but I have to ask, to see how I rate. I am late 20's and have never had the desire to have children. Everyone tells me that I will change, but I know deep down inside, I don't want any. The way I see it, a woman has 2 choices in life: Get married, get pregnant, raise kids, never have a real life. Or, get married, don't have children, babysit for friends, and have many fun adventures together, and more money in the bank, etc. I hope this post doesn't get looked down on I have been married for 2 years (3rd marriage), and this is still how I feel. The first hubby cheated, I left. The second sent me out for dinner, and I came home to a note that said he just wanted to leave out of the blue, and this 3rd hubby is incredible, I love him more than anything in the world, and I feel it is vice versa. We are both only children as well. He knew how I felt before we were married. And it hasn't came up yet, but I think he knows how I feel. I just do NOT want the responsibility. I see it happen to my friends all the time. They end up being a maid, mother, wife, cook. And they never have time for themselves, or anything. Not to mention the cost of a child these days, and what they are turning out to be--regardless of how they were raised. My hubby really doesn't do his part of the household work now. I do it ALL. Unless I nag and bitch, which I have seen doesn't help at all. So, I just pick up his slack and do it all. We both work 40-50 hour jobs, and have a lot going on in our lives. I really feel he doesn't take the best care of me emotionally anyway, how could he handle a kid?? I just have no interest in it. I believe it is normal to feel this way. I mean it, NO interest. We already have so many issues, sexual and everything, so I can't see how children could make it better. And I get real tired of the comments from family and friends, who feel it is their right to inquire when they please, if and when we are having kids. I have seen what pregnancy does to a women as well. All my life I have struggled w/ being fat, and the one that gets made fun of in school. Well, about 5 years ago, I started working out, and made some drastic changes. Now, I feel I look great, I went from a 14/16 to a 7/8 And I love the way I look! My body fat has went from 33% to 19%! I just couldn't imagine giving it all up again, just to get fat, stretch marks, and be something I am not. I need to know if any other women are struggling w/ this. I know it seems like I am selfish. Maybe I am? I just want to enjoy life w/o the hassle of children involved.
