The Childless and Godless


The Childless and Godless

This is a group to discuss the joy of being childless! I am amazed at the number of atheists I have met over the past few years that are childless by choice, here is a place to discuss stories and experiences!

PR Girl, I did that, too. The woman I took care of was a marvel. She broke the "color barrier" in figure skating, not so much for herself, but for her students.  Her former students were always visiting and helping, and taking her places, especially her "boys."

You're right; people with grown children are more likely to end up in one of those nursing homes when they get too old, or disabled, to take care of themselves.  I don't understand it; grandparents used to be a vital part of a family.

I work as a caregiver for a lady who didn't have kids. She has people with her, paying individual attention to her 24/7. Out of all the old people I know she's the best off. I also knew old people who still had to go to homes even though they had kids.

Gregory - I've heard the same things too.

And having kids so they'll be 'obligated' to care for me when I get old? How fucking selfish is that? It's what I'm currently doing for MY FATHER because he refuses to exercise/stretch/care for himself. Selfish is having kids so they're free slave labor for when you're too lazy to care for yourself. Not forgoing kids because you know you can't care for them properly.

It's responsible to not have kids:) It's responsible to be a good aunt or uncle. For the people with kids who feel sorry for me.; well, if they could read my mind, they would want to kick my ass.

There's nothing selfish or immature about choosing not to take on unnecessary responsibilities that you don't want.

I have been lucky to surround myself with friends who don't have kids.  My best friend is 36, and will never have kids.  It is great for me.  I can only imagine how much a kid would ruin our shenanigans.


And consider, I feel that I am much more attractive to men and women because I am 42 and in shape and childless.  I get asked, "How many kids do you have?" sometimes, and when I say I have none, I can see the positive effect it has.  This is only on singles, of course.  Married with children people look at me like they feel sorry for me.  Whatev.  They will never know how fun it is to be over 40 and child-free.

the more the better. I think it's 99.9% for me too.

Nice to have you Chizu!

Hi guys! I just joined AN and found this group. Now I have a place I can rant about 99.9% of the people I know having kids. Old, young, competent, not... It drives me nuts that they think there's something wrong with me not liking their little minions.
