Is it wrong to not want to have kids?


My husband and I have recently decided that we may not want kids at all. This is for reasons of heath, the way the world is heading, financially, spiritually and we both share the same patients issues. So is it wrong for us to not want to have them? We have cats and a parrot and consider them our kids in some sense.

    I agree. I think that having children is a huge decision and a lifetime committment. I think that some people make a conscious decision to not take that route, and that's ok too. :)

    Very smart comment.Always assess your socioeconomic and psychological situation before having children.If more people did as you did, there would be less poverty and other travails among children. Voted you WAY UP for foresight and intelligence!!!

    Totally agree.Many people have children without thinking of the positives and negatives.That is why you see so many abused, abandoned, throwaway and generally children who are viewed as in the way. Children KNOW.......

    Certainly is. Many people have couple just for social approval and because of social pressure.Such children know that they were not initially wanted by their parents.Children know when they are wanted and cherished and when they are just tolerable.

    What is wrong with considering my pets as my children? I would do that even if I had actual children. I say that in the sense that I love them and care for them. I see nothing wrong with that. I understand the difference.
