Hi, I saw the thread for people who are pregnant or have kids, but didn't see one for people without kids. This is that thread. A few ideas of topics:
*Why don't you want kids or don't have kids?
*Did you want kids when you were younger?
*Are you married or single? If married, what's your spouse's feelings on not having kids?
*Do you even like kids?

I'll answer first.
*Why I don't want kids: I'm a devout Buddhist and I want to become a monastic (like a Catholic monk or nun, but Buddhist). Having kids dependent on you rules you out for that opportunity.
*When I was in my 20's, I wanted to have two kids. But it didn't happen with my first husband (good thing!) and my current husband is supportive of me....which brings me to the next question
*Married, and my husband supports the idea of having no kids. He understands that having kids would just complicate our life too much, because of me wanting to be a Buddhsit monastic and him wanting to sail the world when I do become a residential student.
*I love kids. In fact, I was a special needs nanny for a number of years in my 20's, a babysitter since I was 12, and am currently working towards volunteering at the children's ministries at a local homeless shelter. I love being with them, listening to them jabber and play, helping them learn...everything about them. Having kids myself, though, is not in my cards.

So join in the fun, 30-somethings who don't have kids! Let's make this our own thread.

Love to the World ~Jewel
