Arghhhhh, A Rant!

Hey, so today I’ve got to rant a little bit.

I’m sure you can see from the title of this video that it’s about the choice we made to not have kids. I’m not really ranting about people asking when we’re going to have kids, that question has sort of fallen to the wayside as we’ve gotten older. The new thing is people asking why we decided to not have kids and even suggesting some (insulting) reasons to us!

Hmph!

Annoying!

Are you kidding?

It would definitely make me feel better if you subscribed to my Youtube channel since I’m only two subscribers away from 115 :). TIA (thanks in advance, I just learned that one haha).

    My husband and I also are not interested in having kids, and we’ve gotten the same thing! It’s one of my biggest pet peeves.

    We didn’t have kids until we were married for 10 years. Neither one of us had a big interest in it, and we were enjoying life just as it was. Something just clicked one day and I decided I wanted to have kids. It was really just a single moment in time when it hit me. So crazy. I was 34 yrs old then. Just like you, we got questions all the time before we did decide. I get your rant – It’s really no one’s business!

    This blog really resonated with me, Kristina – thanks for sharing. I have always felt the exact same way, just never wanted kids. No real reason, just don’t want them. It’s too bad that it’s still considered such an unconventional or “weird” choice to make. I bought a house 2 years ago in a “kid” neighborhood and I swear the neighbors all think that Tom and I are weirdos because we don’t have kids. Stay strong and remember that you don’t owe anyone an explanation for YOUR life choices.

    Great vlog today! It’s always nice to hear from other women who don’t want kids. Like you, I knew from an early age I didn’t want kids but that doesn’t stop others from questioning your ADULT decisions. My husband and I have been married for nearly 13 years and the questions don’t stop. I’m 35 and he’s 44 – we’re not going through a phase. We made a conscious decision not to bring life into this world. For some reason, others can’t fathom that. Despite the questions, I do find myself lucky to live in an age where I can make this decision, despite others’ opinions. I can’t imagine how many women were forced to have kids knowing that they didn’t want them – and they probably ended up resenting the kids who came into this world through no fault of their own.
