    Sometimes you love someone and you want to be with them for the rest of your life.  This does mean you want children.  You can love your spouse without kids.  I personally do not want children, but I would not rule out marriage if the right man came along.

    I agree.  Although I am married and have children, two of my friends are married and have never planned on having children.  My aunt and uncle never had children, but enjoyed having a lot of pets as their children.  There are a lot of people who get married but never have kids.

    The world is overpopulated as is.  There is othing wrong with not having kids.  To each his own! Sometimes it is just not in the cards. I find that people who can not have kids, usually adopt several pets and treat those animals like their children. They tream them like gold. Pets can be very rewarding as well.

    Maybe because they love each other and are committed to each other.

    I'd love to get married, but I do not want to have kids at all! Marriage isn't a contract that says you have to have kids, it is a deeper commitment for the couple itself.

    Some people don't want to have kids. I know a lady who desires children and is depressed because her husband does not want kids. She does marithons, they have a large house, and can afford two boats if they want. She strives to be commited to many groups to make an impact, because she "needs a reason to get up in the mornings".
    People might not get married to have children, but they should.

    Maybe some people just don't feel like they would be up for the whole parenting lark. I guess it just depends on the person. I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to get married but not have kids, providing both people agree with that decision in the first place.

    I say, leave those people be as they are.

    They owe nothing to you, to me, or to society.

    Probably because they want to enjoy each other for a long while before adding children in the picture.  smile
