I was thrilled to pieces when I found this group. I turned 30 last September and just got married two weeks ago (yaaay!). Of course, even during the reception, I was being asked, "So when will you two being having kids?"

This question annoys me. I feel like it's a personal question. My husband and I are working on our careers and other activities we love that cannot involve kids (he is a civil war re-enactor while I'm learning roller skating and possibly joining roller derby). The fact of the matter is that we're just not ready and don't want to have kids in the two bedroom apartment we have now.

I actually had someone at my job tell me that I wasn't getting any younger and that if I didn't have them soon, it would be too late. I blew a gasket and told her the conversation was completely inappropriate for work.

I'm not sure if I want children, let alone how will we ever afford them, and I don't like feeling judged or pressured for that. So I'm glad to find a place that I might find some like-minded folks.

Thanks for having me!
