    Why Should I Have To Have Children?

    Okay, for starters I think children can be cute, but I don't want them. I never have. I often discuss children with my boyfriend. He really wants them. It hurts me that he does. I don't have the patience, family guidance, room, money, or desire to raise any children. I like my...

    I just don't want children.

    I love children, but I don't want any. There's a difference between liking them and having to raise them. I have a semi-independent nature, so I don't want the huge responsibility of raising a child. So, yeah, I fear being pregnant.
