DH’s dad is trying to pressure us. Once when I said “if we have kids” he corrected me with “when you have kids” >.<

I don’t have siblings. DH’s just graduated from HS. I think that’s why there’s so much pressure on us.

We are CBC for now, I’m not sure if it is a forever decision but for some time we have been living this life style and will continue to do so for at least the immediate future. We are both oldest children in families with no grand children. In fact, none of our cousins (mine are older, his same or younger) have children either.

My best advice for avoiding the family pressure. Move far away or put yourself in a career focus where you clearly could not have time to have a kid. haha I know this sounds rediculous but it describes us and no one asks when we are having babies. I figure, they must feel like there is not point to pressure for grand children they won’t see more than once or twice per year.

We aren’t sure about having kids either and my SIL is still in college so I doubt she will have any for a while if at all.  Thankfully my ILs aren’t harrassing about kids yet, but we see them next week so I will know for sure then.

Darling Husband and I are CBC, and I’m 95% sure his brother and my sister are CBC as well. They have both mentioned in passing that they don’t really want children, and would rather be an aunt/uncle (sucks, since we would be their only hope for that and we’re CBC as well!). They are both single though, so they could eventually change their minds.
