So are these saving conservatives, or family hating liberals?

Well two things I've learned in FYM are that true conservatives save, save, save and never live out of their means so if they can't afford the best education they won't have kids, and liberals hate families.

So I'm guessing it's both...

That works as I didn't put it out there as a partisan political argument.

I chose not to have kids years ago, and nobody gave a shit. They knew it was my business and didn't feel the need to write entire magazine articles about it.

My mom knows better than to bug me about when I'm going to get married and give her grandbabies. She knows she might not be getting any from me.

For me the biggest fear of having kids involves child custody disputes and people getting nasty turning you over to child welfare just to be mean. I want offspring but I don't want those headaches if they come, and you never know.

My mom has stooped to working on my little brother and praying that he has illegitimate children!

I would like to adopt kids. Not sure if that will happen for the first one since I honestly don't think we can afford it even with help from Phil's parents, but eventually I want to. I don't have this maternal urge to be pregnant and there's enough babies already.

When I was a kid and being particularly difficult my mum used to give me "the look" and say "I hope when you have kids, that they are just like you."

I didn't want to risk it, so no kiddos for me!

Martha!

Indra - Mr. Blu & I have always joked along those same lines... saying that our not having children was the best way of protecting the world from what would have surely been an unholy terror of our two personalities/genes combined!

I've been lucky in the aspect of not getting grilled by family & friends. Kelly & I married were married young (21 yrs old) and didn't even consider children for about 9 yrs or so. Then I got pregnant (which excited & thrilled us) - only to find out about 6 days later that I was miscarrying (which was more devastating that I would have ever expected, considering I didn't feel driven to have children in the 1st place). My parents, in-laws & a few close friends knew what had happened, but no one else. We made a concerted effort for about 1-2 yrs to get pregnant again with no success. Kelly & I finally made the decision that while we'd like to have children, we didn't want to continue the emotional torture we were putting ourselves through & it was time to move on since neither of us felt that being childless made us incomplete. We've never regretted that decision.

The funny thing is, I must have put off a stronger "no babies" vibe than I thought because I can't name 3 people in the 18yrs we've been married who've asked when Kelly & I were going to start having children!

The neo-liberal globalist oligarchical system discourages people from having kids, it's purpose is to keep middle class people in penury so they can't afford to have kids.

Er, no not really. I've always been a deranged conspiracy theorist.
