RE: Child Free and Free Thinking
One thing I've noticed with people who don't have kids, chances are they have dogs or cats and become verrrrry attached to them almost like they are children. Do you think humans need a close relationship with smaller things...be it a couple of small growing humans or a small fuzzy animal or even a snake? Just wondering.

Carry on.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Child Free and Free Thinking
As someone who is older and about to have a kid, I didnt want kids for quite a while, then when I thought I wasnt going to get the chance (As I got older) I started to change my tune.

That being said I hate that people who don't want to have kids get harassed about it. If I ever here "Well you dont have kids, you wont understand" one more time in my life someone might die.

I've always wanted to be a father (you know, I want my kid to have something I never really had), but I am totally understanding of those who don't want to have kids. More power to them, you know?

I really don't like it when people assume others must have kids.

Many people who have motherly/fatherly instincts still don't want to put more people on this earth, for many different reasons.

I don't think though that they get more attached in a parent/child way to their pets, it's more of a companion thing. A very different type of relationship, but yes, I love my pets.

Empty nesters, people whose kids have moved out, seem to have more of a parent/child relationship with their pets.

I think one of the biggest problems on Earth is over population so if someone doesn't want to have children I'm fine with that. Unfortunately it seems religious people are the ones having more kids and atheists and logical people have less. More Muslims and Mormons and Methodists, oh my! These are the very people who should have less children or even no children- not more. It sucks. Like a outerspace Black Hole....it just sucks big time.

Note: To avoid disappointment for you don't, and I mean DON'T think that teens will grow up cleaning their own mess, they will in fact keep everything dirty until they can't see the floor, and if they do take them to therapy, any teen willing to clean without their parents telling them need it(it is actually a meme that's how serious teens were)

RE: Child Free and Free Thinking
Yup, married for 25 years and love the quiet. We've been asked enough times over the years that I've become immune and blunt about it. Stangers can ask and I'll calmly respond no the first time...beyond that they tread on thin ice.
With friends we've had many long and deep discussions about it, meh.

I always wondered why people are obsessed with having kids? The population is 7 billion I think we will be fine of some people don't want kids.
