Im 29 and would love to have kids, the kid issue is probally my biggest regret of suffering from S.A.D. I've had plenty of casual exp.. but never a serious relationship. I know I would be a good farther, I doubt if I'll ever meet her that will allow me to fufill my duty!!!

VHMET Rules! May we live long and die out. Thank-you for not breeding.

I don't belong here yet but I hope to be a future member! Although it's not going to be easy with my parents and culture according to which everyone's gotta breed!

How hard has it been for you all to find relationship partners who also don't want kids? Did you reveal this early on in your relationship(s)?

Not hard. It's never been a real issue except in one relationship in my early-mid 20s where I kept being badgered about it. It ended for other reasons. I've been in a couple of relationships in my 30s and they were fine with it. Maybe I just attract like-minded individuals. The subject comes up at some point but not until already in a relationship. Maybe I should change that ... yeah.

No kids for me either. This contributed to the break up of a relationship, but I strongly felt like I didn't want to bring someone in the world to have anxiety and depression. It runs in my family really heavily.

Also the way the world is going and with environmental destruction, I think it makes sense not to bring so many children into the world.

Hello, 32 and married with no kids and no intent. I am afraid I would screw them up.

Percentage of women now in their mid-forties without children:

-10 per cent in France
-16 per cent in the US and Australia
-19 per cent in the UK
-20 per cent in Germany
-24 per cent in Italy (!)

So, it's becoming quite common not to have any children.

The way I see it is that even if I did want kids I could never afford them.

A huge amount of my taxes are already paying for the hundreds of teenager mothers (who have kids simply out of boredom) to churn out one delinquent brat after the next, if I ever had my own they would have to go without because those other kids needed a new pair of diamond earrings or high-definition plasma televisions for their nurseries.

Itís alright girls, their first fifteen years are all on me:

I don't plan on reproducing either. Would like to have many cats though. I'm a fan of VHEMT too.

I have few kids in my basement, but they're not mine of course, just kidding.That joke is why I'm never having kids, not even near me.
