My wife and I are with you on this! I think we are a rare breed these days when you look at facebook haha. Everyday there is a new picture of a baby or baby furniture or baby or child play dates. I am sure they like seeing my car pictures about as much as I enjoy their baby pictures
My wife and I met 15 years ago and knew then we did not want children. Here we are 15 years later and we still feel the same way. We are currently discussing "who should have the operation". Dont get us wrong though, we certainly love and enjoy other peoples children. We have 5 beautiful nieces and 1 nephew on his way.
We love spending time with our nieces and we are known as the "cool aunt and uncle". However, we also love when its time to give them back to their parents.
We are often told by family and some friends that we are missing out and we will never find true happiness such as the happiness found in having children and completely living your life for another being. To love something more than yourself...etc etc. I get it, I can see the happiness my friends and family enjoy through their children but I I can't tell you enough how much that is not for me.
My wife and I find our own happiness in spending as much time together as we can, enjoying our success's together, being able to pick up and go wherever, whenever, being able to spend our hard earned money on ourselves and being able to sleep in whenever we want. Yes those happiness's may sound fickle to parents but that is what makes us happy.
I do tire of being judged though by parents who think there happiness is the only happiness out there. And how I "just don't get it". Listen, I do not judge you for you're life's decisions, so please do not judge me for mine. I will even babysit for you if you need me to?? lol
