    I knew from the age of 30, that I didn't want kids. I never regretted my decision. I would have been a good father though. Many have told me that.

    I really don't want kids when I am older. If I ever was to have one, I'd adopt an older kid like maybe 10 or older. But only if I have a good job and good income.
