I get it. I’m a fencer ( although leaning heavily towards NO!) and I get the same kindadeal . It bothers people when they make a comment about me bearing young, and I tell them not to curse me with children.  It’s like they see boobs and autonautically think “momma!”

It never ends, by the way. I had one and now we’re 99 percent sure we’re done. People always say…..”Just wait” or some from of the catch phrase you mentioned. And when you have two….

It just never ends.

That is so annoying! Honestly I would probably snarkily say something like, “well unfortunately I’m medically unable to have children… So yes I can say never,” and watch the look of embarrassment on their face. People need to stop being so rude and intrusive when it’s none of their damn business.

edit: lol! Just saw this is 3 years old! Not sure how I got on this page…thought it was the first page lmao

I never want children. I know my mind could change in the future. But as of right now, I am 100% certain. I’ve been that way all my life. People always said, “You’ll change your mind when you’re older”. Well, I’m older. Mind hasn’t changed yet. It changed to, “Wait til you meet someone you really love and want to spend the rest of your life with. Then you’ll change your mind.” Met him. Didn’t change my mind. Now it’s “Once you get married…”. I don’t think it will ever end.

PumpkinPie-PeachyKeen:  I completely respect your decison. Don’t let people dictate what you decide to be best for you and your partner. Being a Mum is a massive life change and it’s definitely not everyones cup of tea. I have a genuine question. I promise i’m not being snarky or anything. Have you considered that maybe when you’re like 60 you might regret your decision?

sharontobemarried:  I’ve definitely thought about that and I would rather regret not having children…than having children and the regretting them. There are many, many reasons I’ve decided not to have children. One of them is that my own mother – while I love her to death and I know she loves me – has said she regretted having children and if she did everything all over again, she wouldn’t have them. I honestly don’t have hurt feelings over that, it just makes me sad that she feels like she wasted her life for something that wasn’t worth it. There was so much she wanted to do with her life that didn’t get done because she had kids. I also know a few family and family friends who never had children, are now old, and (at least they say) they don’t regret it.

PumpkinPie-PeachyKeen:  Cool thanks. Yes that makes sense, my MIL tells my husband all the time that she regrets having him and it makes him feel horrible.
