    No, Thank You.

    My wife wants a baby because she thinks a baby will give her something to do and she won't be bothered by her friends and family who keep asking her what she's doing with her life. I am terrified of having a baby. It is a huge responsibility for 18 years minimum (and...

    I'm Not Sure Yet.

    When I think about children, I don't hate them to the point where I don't want them. Since I was 14, I've been picking up the slack left from my sister. I was always like a second mother to my niece, and now nieces! Whenever I got home from school, I was...

    Just Not What I Want

    Growing up I have helped to raise babies, toddlers, kids, and preteens. Raising kids is just not for me. Giving birth is a beautiful process and I adore the beautiful women who go through months of pregnancy and hours of labor to bring a new little human into this hard world we...

    I've always gone back

    But I Want a Family Lol

    Another one of my weird thoughts. I want a family but I don't want to have a baby. I'd probably adopt one if I really want a family. I can call them my own and treat them as if I am the reason why they came into this world.

    Just Not For Me

    I'm 27 and I don't want to have kids. I've never felt that "urge" to be a mother. I don't want the responsibility of someone depending on me for every single thing.
