I believe a solid perspective can solve the world’s problems, but I’m not a world leader….. Moving on, a neighbor recently told me about a conversation she had with a friend regarding couples who do not have children. Her friend’s opinion; people who do not have kids are selfish.
I have a different opinion on this matter.
I commend couples who decide not to have children because they don’t want them. Having worked for a non-profit for abused children, couples who don’t want children definitely should not have them. If people recognize they don’t want kids, that’s their decision.
The other viewpoint, what if the couple could not have children. Adoption may have been an option but perhaps not for that couple. Infertility is a painful topic and one so many couples are not comfortable talking about. I'd also like to point out that this argument goes for couples with one child.
Thoughts, feelings, reactions?
