We are a childless couple, by choice.
There I’ve said it. By choice.
In an age where if you don’t have children it must simply be ‘because you can’t?’, we, us lepers, have decided not to have children.
Why oh why can’t people be polite about it and understanding.
Why do people feel the need to be so intrusive about it.
No, its not because I’m a ‘career woman’, I like my job, but don’t love it and definitely don’t see myself taking over the world anytime soon. We have just chosen not to have children. I like them, we just don’t want them! Is that so hard to comprehend, apparently so.
Maybe we are selfish, maybe I do value my sleep, my nights out and my ‘selfish’ lifestyle. But if that’s what I choose, stop poking your nose in and assuming one of us has a fertility problem.
I’m sick of being asked!!
