    Re: Just us two..

    I believe one of the most Important basis's for having a well minded, balanced child Is that child knowing he/she was planned and wanted.
    There seems to be a train of thought that the natural procession Is marriage and then automatically, children wether you are ready or not. I commend you for putting so much thought Into It.
    I have an aversion to the type of woman who believes that because she's had children, then there has to e something wrong with those who don't.
    The type of woman on Facebook documenting every waking moment of their childs life, every drawing, every time they've dunked a biscuit because they think the world Is oh so bloody Interested.
    The moment they have a child, It's almost as though their life has ended and actually believe that those women without children have no life and can't possibly be fulfilled.
    It's an arrogance I find rather off putting In some women. Then of course, the Irony Is their marriage breaks down and then they are whining about how tough It Is being a single Mum.

    Re: Just us two..

    I never had children either. I have a thirty year old son, who is the child of his previous father, but my wife was never able to bear children since I before I married her. I don't feel I missed much. I have two wonderful grandchildren and that's enough.

    Besides....I've raised over 10,000 children who aren't mine by this point in my life. I guess I got as much of being with children as I would ever need....

    Just tell them, "But my snakes ARE my children."

    That should at least by you time for a quick exit.
    And may send the MIL into apoplexy.

    To be honest, I didn't expect so many supportive replies.
    There must be more to life than marriage, being a baby making machine and then becoming a wrinkle saurus ( = very old person ).
    And i'm going to find out

    I don't like children. I never have and never will.

    They smell, are sticky, annoying, want silly things, scream and so on.
    You can't keep animals and talk of smelly sticky children derogatorily.
    I do however respect your choice not to have children.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    I'm with you Chloe....and I wouldn't want to cross your mum either!

    Looking at the big picture, there's over 7 billion people in the world and counting, so the people who don't have children are doing those of who do have kids, a big favour. Somebody needs to get the message out to the fundamentalists that women can do more things that making babies, so pregnancy should be optional/not compulsory...like it is in some extremely overcrowded and unhealthy places in the world today!

    All animals smell, trust me.
    You are entitled to your opinion, never said anything against that.
