I would like to consider myself childfree to an extent. Which most might agree.
I have two step children and none of my own. My husband had children when I met him. I was establishing my career, growing a business and wanting to travel more. We decided to not have children together.
I personally never had the urge to have children. I’ve watched friends’ children and enjoyed it but never felt it was for me. I love my two step sons dearly and enjoy helping them turn into wonderful open-minded adults.
Yet I still get questioned at 39 when will I have children of my own. Individuals can’t seem to understand that I can have no regrets to not birth children myself. I am happy in my balance of life and wouldn’t have it any other way.
Thanks for creating an outlet for others in similar situations.
