    are married with kids or pregnant. I don't know if I want kids. I never really have had the urge but I find I don't fit in with my friends now even though I make an effort to maintain the friendship, I feel it's a really one sided effort. A simple lunch date is a big logistical...

    Not Yet

    I have no kids, but just because I don't have them doesn't necessary mean that I don't want them, because I do more than anything. My husband has a low ***** count so we've had a time trying to get pregnant and we just pray someday that it happens.

    I'm Thrilled That I Have No Kids.

    I never wanted kids and I was smart to not have any. My life has been a lot easier without (human) children. I do have 6 feline babies.
