I just want to say how happy I am that I have found a community like this. It sometimes seems like I take blows from every direction: co-workers, friends, and family on the decision to not have children. It goes so far as to people sometimes have me believing what a horrible person I am for not wanting kids. My husband did initially want kids, but I laid it out in the very beginning that I do not want them, and that is unlikely to change. I have had people tell me he shouldn't have married me. We have other things we want to do with our child-free lives, such as work heavily in overseas missions. I feel like at least if I am not going to have kids, I should really do something with the "freedom" that gives me, and I feel a strong passion for anti-trafficking.
