Why do some people INSIST that childfree people are SELFISH, IMMATURE, IRRESPONSIBLE, & UNFILLED?
What makes these same people INSIST that childfree people would be "happier" if they had children?
I don't know of anyone who thinks that of childless or at least voiced in my presents. I think that childfree means the couple are not ready for children or there may be a medical/physical reason there are no children.
I do hope you get an answer from someone who considers childless couples as selfish. I don't think anyone will admit to feeling that way about other couples.
Good luck with your question.
Because they are valuing their convenience and comfort over continuation of the family.
And what is so special about continuation of the family? What if they have chosen not to have children coz they feel this world has nothing great to offer, why put another generation through this garbage? Selfish could be the parents who 'want' kids
Ms wilhite, how do you know there isn't a medical, financial or physical reason that couples don't have children?

couples? It seems that in this strongly pronatalist society, there is still the underlying premise, the more, the better. People are continuously exhorted to have children by their parents, friends, religion, relatives, and the outer society. Oftentimes, many people have children much...

Why are so many people selfish and mean, even to family members?Maybe I shouldn't be surprised any more, but why are so many family members selfish and hurtful to other family members? Life is precious, and flying by, and even if someone isn't your favorite person, why can't more just be kind...
