Long, leisurely travels, sleeping in in the mornings, and spontaneity in plans. Plus, walking around barely clothed in my house doesn’t hurt haha

Putting lots of money into savings, not having to worry about what school district our future home will be in so we can buy anywhere we want, not having to plan the future around anyone but the two of us. It’s great!

The quiet. As one mother I worked with told me: “When the kids are in school and my husband is at work, I like to turn off the lights and just SIT there in the quiet cause I don’t get it very often.”

It may sound weird but i like that I can take my quiet time for granted lol.

Also, everything stays clean longer because I don’t have to worry about child-proofing my things or cleaning up after spills, messes, baby equipment, and toys.

Financially/materially, very little at the moment, as I’m a student, and we’re trying to save for a deposit on a property, so money is tight.

For us, at the moment, our indulgences are things like lie-ins, spontaneous nights out (we eat out at least 12 times a week; not anywhere fancy or expensive, but it’s just lovely being able to do that so easily, without worrying about getting a babysitter), and long-haul holidays (esp to adult-only hotels 🙂 This is our main luxury), or last-minute short breaks. Also, I will be able to continue my studies and do a PhD, which would be impossible due to the time and cost if we wanted children; so being able to puruse my education, and a career I want, is wonderful to me 🙂

@SoupyCat:  Also, I like being able to watch violent/cursing/horror TV shows and movie, and walk around my house in my underwear.

EXACTLY! My child is 25 and out of the house, and I can do what I want now.

Living where ever we want because we do not have to worry about finding a good school district !
