    You must be infertile. You must hate children. It's your duty to have a big family. Don't you want someone to take care of you when you are old? Are you too selfish to have more children?

    (1) What's wrong with you? Why don't you want children? You must be abnormal.  Everyone wants children.
    (2) You're not a family. It's children that make a family.

    (4) You are irresponsible.
    (5) Only one child-how SELFISH can you be!
    (6) Everyone needs children, c'mon now.
    (7) If you can travel & eat out, you can definitely have children.

    (10) WHEN are you going to have children?
    (11) WHEN are you going to have MORE children?

    (20) You can't live for yourself now.  You are to live for your children.
    (21) Such SELFISH, self-centered, self-indulgent people who have NO CONCEPT of caring for others.
    (22) What lonely people they......ARE.
    (23) What unfulfilled lives they have.

    1) You'll change your mind when you're older.
    2) You're a woman (perceived, anyhow), you MUST want kids.

    Those are the two I hear most often. I honestly believe that this social prejudice against women who don't have children is largely a feminist issue that hasn't been addressed enough.

    You must be spoiled, or your child must be spoiled.
