15 Reasons To Not Have Children

I know I know, children are the greatest thing since sliced bread. Well, now that I think about it, since kids were around before sliced bread, would that make them the best things… ever? I digress.

Not everyone wants to be a parent – and that is perfectly ok. Sometimes individuals may feel the nee to defend their childless choices, since getting married and raising children is ‘the thing to do’, especially here in the South. We’ve come up with some true, amusing, and tongue in cheek excuses to not have kids, for you parentless readers to enjoy. Have any other reasons to be child free? Discuss it with us in the comments!

    Just have to say having a child I see these as funny, but oh the joys of having a child really are what they say too. You may be just being selfish per all these reasons.

    My partner and I do not want to have children. We enjoy our freedom and having the time and energy to nurture our relationship. If that makes us selfish- we will embrace the title with smiles on our faces 🙂
