I'm unmarried and childfree because I deliberately chose it as a way of life. I'm financially stable and have all the time in the world to dedicate to my hobbies, interests and following my dreams. I do love children, though, I just chose not to have any of my own. I have the time and money to spoil my nieces and nephew whom I love to bits! Having or not having children is a choice not an obligation. All couples should think very carefully about whether parenting is really for them or not. Having children just because it’s what everyone else is doing is not a good enough reason.
