I’m 30, engaged to an awesome guy who is 32. My brother and I both don’t want kids…I think it’s how we were raised TBH. My mom never wanted us and told us that until she left us. She resented us. I don’t know what I’d do if I made a kid that I didn’t want…also, the whole pregnancy and birthing thing…it’s terrifying. No. I don’t want my body doing that. Please and thank you! Also not cool with bodily functions. These “funny” stories about poop everywhere or toddlers throwing up all over their parents…I just can’t stomach them. It’s not funny if an adult has diarrhea on an airplane…to me it doesn’t get any funnier when it’s a tiny adult. 

We have a fur baby…a yorkie named Beast. He is enough of a pain in our butts with his constant need for attention and cuddling lol! We love to travel and it’s so sad to board him when we go…how do parents have any life at all?! 

My family is not in the picture but I hate it when other people ask if I want to have kids, and I tell them no. The words “You’ll change as you get older.” don’t stop coming, even though I thought they would after hitting age 30. I mean come on…wouldn’t I know by now? I also haven’t liked red meat all my life. Do you think that’s going to suddenly turn around at age 37? Nah…30 years of knowing I don’t have it in me is enough.

I adore other peoples’ kids but I love MORE the fact that I will keep my body, money, sanity, and will do so without a teenager slamming  door in my face after all these sacrifices, saying things like “OMG you’re horrible…I hate you mom!” 

Oh and also? That whole “Well you don’t really know what love is until you’ve had a kid”? That’s pretty condescending. Yes I know what love is. Many different forms of it. I don’t need to feel exactly what you feel in order to finally justify my feelings and go “Oh thank heavens…NOW I know what love is. Whew. Was missing out that whole time.”

  • Wedding: August 2014

submart:  

How old are you and your SO? 29 and 30.

Are you married, in a committed relationship, etc.? Married (for 1.5 years).

How long have you and your SO been together? Celebrated our 10 year anniversary in November.

At what age did you become CFBC? Difficult one to answer. I think I have always been CFBC, but, I did go through a phase of assuming I would have children because ‘that’s what everyone does’. I then realised that not having children was actually an option (lol), so went through a fence-sitting phase really analysing my feelings, and then came ‘out’ as CFBC about 3 years ago, at 25/26.

Is your SO CFBC or ok with whatever on the kid issue? Like me, he assumed he would have children. I suspect he might have had them/have them were he with someone else. However, he’s actually more anti-kid than I am (much less patience etc), so it’s kind of a paradox of sorts.

What do you use for birth control (if applicable)? The mini-pill Zeletta. I have endometriosis, so need to be on hormonal BC to keep it under control. I’ve previously tried the combined pill (Microgynon), the Mirena IUS, and the Depo Provera injection, and this has been the best all-round.

I plan to have an elective total hysterectomy when I reach my 40s due to the possible link between endo and certain cancers (inc ovarian), and am considering sterilisation, but at the moment it isn’t a priority due to cost, the fact abortion is free and legal in the UK, and the fact I have to stay on hormonal BC anyway (plus the risks of surgery, which are higher for me because of the endo, which just LOVES scar tissue).

Do you have any pets (or are you pet free as well)? We are currently with my parents and so help care for the family dog, a gorgeous 5 year old Boxer boy. We hope to move out later this year, and when we do will probably be pet-free for the forseeable future at least. We both love dogs, but they are a huge commitment; not as much as a child, obviously, but still up there IMPO. We like being able to go away last-minute, and go away several times a year, and I don’t think that’s fair on an animal.

What does your family/friends think of you being CFBC? My family are fine and honestly, totally unsurprised. My friends are also fine with it now I’m ‘out and proud’. We do however get comments/criticism from some of H’s friends, and I’ve had to be pretty rude to them on a few occasions to shut things down. H’s family are also fine with it, bar Mother-In-Law, but, we have no contact with her.

Do you have any immediate family members or friends who are CFBC? No, though Brother-In-Law is on the fence.

What are your hobbies? Reading, swimming, travelling, theatre (particularly the ballet and Opera), dining out.

Why are you CFBC? Because I don’t want children. All the other pluses are just added bonuses.

How do you respond when others ask you why or when you are going to have kids? ‘Actually, I don’t want children.’ If they push, I will say I do not wish to discuss it and change the subject, and have actually walked away from people before when they have STILL continued. I’ve also been pretty rude on a couple of occasions eg one woman KEPT bingoing me, so in the end (it was a situation where leaving would have been difficult) I said: ‘You know that new baby smell?’ *cue lots of ohhs and ahs and nodding and smiling* ‘Yeah, I can smell that, and it makes me feel physically sick’. Harsh? Yup. But it did the trick; she realised not only was I serious about not wanting babies NOW, but ever. I was trying to demonstrate how I just lack any maternal instinct, and it had the desired effect.

How are you preparing for a CFBC life in “old age”? The long-term plan would be to own a small property that we live it, and also purchase an investment property for some income once we’re retired. I also hope to cultivate a close network of friends of all ages: the happiest, least lonely elderly people I know are actually all CFBC. So I am not worried.

What do you do for a living? I currently work part-time only and am looking for full-time employment. I was working two jobs and studying for a PhD until July last year, but I’ve been extremely ill for the last couple of years, basically due to Mother-In-Law (stress, anxiety, depression, several nervous breakdowns, and a major CFS relapse) so had to quit my PhD and one of my jobs. I’m getting better, so am now looking for work, ideally an admin position in a school.

How old are you and your SO? 28 and 43

Are you married, in a committed relationship, etc.? Married

How long have you and your SO been together? 4 years, although we’ve been close friends for 10 years.

At what age did you become CFBC? I kinda knew when I was 14, but I didn’t fully decide until I was 26.

Is your SO CFBC or ok with whatever on the kid issue? He is completely okay with it. He already got to do the dad thing so he doesn’t mind not doing it again.

What do you use for birth control (if applicable)? Just condoms for now. I’m scheduled for Essure at the end of the month!

Do you have any pets (or are you pet free as well)? We have a cat. I am an animal lover and couldn’t imagine being without a pet! Dogs are out of the question right now because we are renting, but I’m thinking it might be time to get another rat soon too.

What does your family/friends think of you being CFBC?  It’s a topic that I avoid with friends and family. They all think I’m being pressured into it because of the 15 year age difference.

Do you have any immediate family members or friends who are CFBC? My sister wasnt exactly CFBC, but she never settled down and she’s in her mid 40s now and unable to have a child. My aunt and uncle are CFBC, and 4 of my close friends were CFBC – they are all in their 40s and 50s now and don’t regret it at all.

What are your hobbies? Walking, running, reading, mud runs, and traveling/random road trips.

Why are you CFBC? I realize kids are a lot of work and they cost a lot of money. I don’t have the time or patience for a child. I don’t do diapers or vomit. Plus there are other issues like kids with cell phones and tablets that make me crazy and I would end up being the old fashioned parent that the kid would hate.

How do you respond when others ask you why or when you are going to have kids? I tell them that I don’t know if or when we will have kids, that having a kitten is enough for me right now, and that he already has 4 of his own that he never sees.

How are you preparing for a CFBC life in “old age”? I’m not really. I can retire with a pension in 30 years and I’ll probably move to a 55+ community in 12 years when he turns 55. Other than than. I’m not really sure.

What do you do for a living? I’m a 9-1-1 operator/dispatcher.

  • Wedding: September 2016

I was not always CFBC – in my 20’s (before I knew better), I thought I wanted kids. Alas, I didn’t find “the one” and decided to further my education and focus on my career instead. It wasn’t until a little later on (early 30’s) that I really started thinking that it is NOT my responsibility to add to the population of this earth and it would be just fine to make the choice to be child free. 

How old are you and your SO? I’m 41 and he’s 46

Are you married, in a committed relationship, etc.? Engaged to be married in Sept 2016

How long have you and your SO been together? 2 years

At what age did you become CFBC? Early-mid 30’s

Is your SO CFBC or ok with whatever on the kid issue? YES! As a matter of fact, that shared perspective was a key attraction for us both

What do you use for birth control (if applicable)? Mirena IUD

Do you have any pets (or are you pet free as well)? Two dogs

What does your family/friends think of you being CFBC? They’re okay with it…my mom knew I didn’t want to be an “old” mom and if I didn’t have kids early on in life, it probably wouldn’t happen

Do you have any immediate family members or friends who are CFBC? Yes, many friends. 

What are your hobbies? Going out listening to local bands, going to festivals/local events, traveling, etc. – pretty much anything we want!

Why are you CFBC? Personal choice – once I hit 35 I had no desire to begin molding the life of another human being. I enjoy my freedom, time, money, sleep and sanity too much. 

How do you respond when others ask you why or when you are going to have kids? Them: “Are you planning on having kids?” Me: “Nope.”

How are you preparing for a CFBC life in “old age”? I don’t understand this question. Are you asking “who will take care of me?” If that’s the case, I don’t think about it and quite frankly, having kids doesn’t guarantee that you’ll have someone to care for you in your old age.

What do you do for a living? Business Executive

  • Wedding: October 2016

How old are you and your SO? I’m 29, he’s 26

Are you married, in a committed relationship, etc.? we’re engaged, will be married in October

How long have you and your SO been together? will be 5 years in April

At what age did you become CFBC? I guess ever since I can remember except for a few instances where hormones took over and I thought kids sounded great

Is your SO CFBC or ok with whatever on the kid issue? He’s ok with whatever. He says he just wants to be with me. Kids or no kids are not a dealbreaker for him.

What do you use for birth control (if applicable)? copper IUD

Do you have any pets (or are you pet free as well)? we have an 11 year old Shih Tzu that we love to pieces

What does your family/friends think of you being CFBC? They don’t know/we haven’t really talked to them about it. My brother is very much looking forward to being a dad and my SO has a sister who wants lots of kids, so our parents will all get grandkids if things work out well for our siblings, which relieves some of the pressure.

Do you have any immediate family members or friends who are CFBC? Nope.

What are your hobbies? reading, hiking, walking, training with kettlebells and bodyweight, cooking, baking, playing with the dog, watching movies and TV shows

Why are you CFBC? because I don’t want kids. Being a parent that is responsible for a little human who is totally dependent on his/her parents for like a decade, then at least somewhat dependent on his parents for another decade, absolutely does not appeal to me. And I want the financial freedom that comes from being child free.

How do you respond when others ask you why or when you are going to have kids? I don’t get asked much but I usually just brush it off with “we’ll get married first” or something along those lines

How are you preparing for a CFBC life in “old age”? haven’t really thought about it yet

What do you do for a living? I’m a project coordinator and starting a side gig of teaching kettlebell classes. When I decided and talked to my Fiance that I didn’t want kids (i was a bit ambivalent and had periods where I wanted kids while we’ve been together), and he was very OK with that, it gave me permission to pursue my passion and work toward becoming a fitness trainer, which I’d been putting off because “well, I need to pay off debts fast and make good money because then my income will drop when I go on mat leave, then there will be kids to think of, so maybe after the kids are in school I can think of going into a career I love and until then continue to be aimless in my career”. So making it official with my Fiance has been very liberating for my career prospects!!

How old are you and your SO?

We are 30 and 31.

Are you married, in a committed relationship, etc.?

Married for 3+ years.

How long have you and your SO been together?

11 years.

At what age did you become CFBC?

I could never picture being a mother when I was young or as a teen. I kept thinking my feelings would one day magically change in my 20s. They did not. So I guess sometime in my 20s it was official.

Is your SO CFBC or ok with whatever on the kid issue?

My husband was always ok with whatever happened but as time went on he also came to officially become CFBC.

What do you use for birth control (if applicable)?

The pill.

Do you have any pets (or are you pet free as well)?

We have cats and they are our kids.

What does your family/friends think of you being CFBC?

My family is unhappy-ish about it, husband’s family we don’t talk to about it, and we have a very small group of friends that sorta know but we don’t talk to them about it either.

Do you have any immediate family members or friends who are CFBC?

I know literally no one else personally who does not want kids at some point in their lives. Not one person.

What are your hobbies?

Tv, video games, reading, shopping, traveling, board games.

Why are you CFBC?

I dislike children and have zero interest in caring for one. Zero interest and actual unhappy feelings about it whenever I think about it. Babies are ok I suppose but once they can walk forget it. I do love the children in our lives but I struggle with being a good babysitter. 

How do you respond when others ask you why or when you are going to have kids?

Usually I’m vague. Oh we have no plans, we aren’t thinking about it yet, etc.

How are you preparing for a CFBC life in “old age”?

I just want to be in a nice condo in a warm climate with my husband and cats. If we can live near my siblings and future neices and nephews that would probably help.

 

What do you do for a living?

Unemployed at the moment, not rushing to change that. Which makes me look more selfish and evil because How can you stay home AND not have children??

  • Wedding: April 2018 - Karlstejn Castle and we have not found a reception venue yet

Hello CFBC Bees! I am newly registered and when I saw that there was a childfree board I was thrilled! ๐Ÿ˜€

My name is Sophie, I am from Wales and am Welsh as is my FH.

I am 23 and FH is 38.  We have been together for 6 years and engaged for 3.

I don’t know if there was really an age where I became childfree, I just remember as a little girl dreaming of the true love and the big wedding after but never the children. As I grew up I had a lot of issues going on but even then I didn’t like children, I think I realised I was childfree when I was around 15 and I found the childfree community when I was 16. I have been staunchly CFBC ever since. When I started going out with my FH I was scared about telling him I didn’t want children but I was soon jumping for joy when he said he didn’t want them either.

My FH is CFBC too and dislikes them as much as I! I think he was relieved when I said I was CF.

I use the pill and the implant but I am hoping to be sterilised, FH is thinking about getting a vasectomy too.

We have a pet rat called Loki who is our little love, he lies on us for cuddles, gives us kisses and he turns us into goo-balls. We lost his brother Thor this January which broke our hearts. We also have a goldfish called Tiny and both long for a dog but circumstances are not suitable at the moment (We travel too much).

My mother and FH parents don’t mind, Future Mother-In-Law was happy at the idea of getting to enjoy her retirement without children in it. I don’t really know if my father knows but my mother is supportive. Our friends don’t care but we have had lots of stupid and insulting things said to us over the years from strangers.

I have an aunt who is childfree but I am not sure if it was by choice, she never married (she is in her 50’s) and never dated. Saying that, we have had great conversations and I know I have her support. I think my cousin and his wife are CF too. Apart from my Aunt and cousin, we know no one else in real life like us.

Travel is my passion and my obsession and I gave it to FH too! ๐Ÿ˜€ I like hiking, walking, animals, nature, ethics, scuba diving, playing games, writing, crafts and reading.

I am CFBC for many reasons to be honest so I will just say the main, most important three. The idea of losing my identity and freedom have always terrified me, I am not giving them up for anything. I have seen many women who before baby were very different, after baby it is like the person they were does not exist anymore, it is not going to happen to me.             Travel is my passion, I literally live for it and I like places that are off the tourist trail. I (with FH) hope to see the entire world and enjoy all the experiences and adventures it has to offer, a child would ruin it completely and we would have to switch adventure in Siberia for Disneyland Paris. There is absolutely no way I am giving up what I feel I was born to do for the sakes of being a parent, I have seen so many people who will never travel because of children and I couldn’t do it to myself to not be able to have adventure in my life. I have had “But you can travel with kids!” from a few people but I feel that is a lie, I have even read travelling parent blogs and it is obvious how the children restrict what the parents can do, as well as needing constant attention.                                                                                                          Love is very important to me and the way I feel, the love between me and FH is too important and our relationship is too awesome to go and ruin it with children. We don’t need children to bind us together. I have seen many relationships that were once like ours die once children came into the picture, even if they stayed together you could see that their love was stomped on by the children and they no longer had the romance at all – that would totally break my heart. Without children, FH and I are able do whatever we want when we want which really makes a romantic difference, have sex, be together and love without restriction. Nothing is in the way of us having true love.

When others ask if I am going to have children I tend to be honest, I just say “No, I don’t want to and neither does my Fiance”. When I would say the same thing before I met him people would totally ignore me and start into a bingoing session. People don’t tend to ask why I’m childfree.

I know I will have a good amount of money to see me and FH cared for well when we are old, thanks to not having kids the money is all ours! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am a student but I am on sickness leave at the moment, I study BA International Tourism Management and Chinese. I have been a travel agent before.

 

Its lovely to meet you all! If I can help anyone with planning a travel itinerary or any travel advice I would love to help! Just message me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wedding: January 2017

Hi there – really enjoying everyone’s responses!

I’m 40, Fiance is 35.

We’ve been together nearly five years, and became engaged in July 2015.

I’ve gone back and forth on the issue of having children over the years, but got really definite on being CFBC about 2-3 years ago.

My SO still goes back and forth on the issue, but she is strongly leaning toward CFBC as well. We both have plenty of nieces and nephews.

We’re both female, so no need for birth control – yay! (In the past, when in relationships with men, I’ve mainly used condoms and the pill, and occasionally a spermicidal film, and once tried a female condom which was rather like having a sandwich baggie in my vagina.)

We have cockatiels, budgies, and a dog. (I’m more the bird person, she’s the dog person.) I love my fluffy little dinosaurs to pieces, and I love our silly, playful, sweet doggie too, even though I think dogs are just naturally pretty gross.

My family doesn’t comment on it, in general. When I first came out as gay to my mom, she did make some comment about my not being able to have kids now, and I had to explain that gay people can have kids, too. Recently my brother’s fairly new girlfriend asked if we planned to have kids, and had no issue with it when we said we’d decided not to. I’d probably get more flack from the parents if two of my brothers didn’t already have several kids each.

My closest friend is CFBC, and has been for as long as she can remember! Her Fiance is as well. I have several other friends who are CFBC too, and the ones who have kids usually don’t see any need to pressure us about it.

My hobbies include volunteering for a rather large local bird rescue organization, caring for my little flock, thrift store shopping (treasure hunting), online chatting, online Scrabble, and reading. My partner and I also love to go out for a night of drinks and karaoke or dancing every now and then.

I’m CFBC because of many, many reasons. I think a lot of people – though certainly not all – go into having children without really knowing what they’re getting themselves into. One major deciding factor was all the info I learned in a Human Development college course. One was seeing what my brothers and their wives have gone through with their pregnancies and kids. One small factor was a conversation at the end of a class about educational goals several years ago: I said I was trying to decide whether to continue on for a degree, or stop for a bit and have a kid, because of my age. A woman told me she had kids, and although she loved them to death, she would not have had them if she could go back and choose again. I’d never heard anyone say that before, and her honesty really made me think.

If someone asks me if/when we’re going to have kids, I just tell them we’ve thought long and hard about it and decided not to. But I don’t get that question much – possibly because of my age and/or my sexual orientation. Now, I met two female friends at a restaurant the other day, and the server (female) asked us if we were having a “girls’ day.” We all looked a little perplexed, and I said, “I guess you could call it that.” Server: “Taking a break from the kids and husbands?” Me: “We don’t have any of those.” Server: “Lucky!!” Haha.

We’re planning for old age the same way anyone would, I suppose. Financial planning, getting my degree so I can earn a better income and put more away, etc. Fiance and I both have lots of kids in our extended families, and I’m sure we’ll continue to be close to them as we get older, should we want to have the “great-aunt” experience.

I’m a full-time student, and will be going into a writing career. Fiance is in law enforcement.

Hello other CFBCers

How old are you and your SO? We are 28 and 30 (29 and 31 very soon)

Are you married, in a committed relationship, etc.? We are committed, to be married this year.

How long have you and your SO been together? 10 years this August.

At what age did you become CFBC? Hard to say. I think I gradually came to the decision over the course of my 20s until I realized, “Hey! I definitely don’t want to have children! Ever!”

Is your SO CFBC or ok with whatever on the kid issue? He is completely okay with never having children, but also okay with if for whatever reason I change my mind and want to adopt.

What do you use for birth control (if applicable)? I carefully follow my cycle and ask him to pull out. Yeah, we’re living on the edge and it’s okay by us.

Do you have any pets (or are you pet free as well)? I have one turtle, although he does not live with us (per the rules of our apartment, sadly)

What does your family/friends think of you being CFBC? My parents are sad; his parents are sad. They occasionally try to make me feel guilty.

Do you have any immediate family members or friends who are CFBC? My two best galpals who are also my cousins are CFBC and we high-five about it all the time.

What are your hobbies? Reading, writing, singing, Netlixing, gaming, and day dreaming in general.

Why are you CFBC? I don’t wish to push anything out of my vagina, nor have a C-section, or have to deal with some smart ass teenagers.

How do you respond when others ask you why or when you are going to have kids? I just say “I don’t want kids. NBD, dudes.”

How are you preparing for a CFBC life in “old age”? I’ll probably have some kind of nurse, or be one of those badass old folk who live independently until the day they die. There are also senior resources that I’m sure I can look into when the time comes.

What do you do for a living? I am a supplemental instructor at a community college. I work in and outside of the classroom, providing group and individual tutoring/lessons.

Olivepepper:  Your response to this question: 

What does your family/friends think of you being CFBC? To be honest, I don’t know, and I don’t care. I shut down any opinions about others ideas on my life choices.

I am making this my mantra. It’s awesome. Strangely, I never realized that I could do that. It’s so obvious now. Thanks for sharing it!

rfs23:  Hi! Very interesting! I would like to ask you if you could give examples of the info you learnt in the Human Development course in college that helped you decide you didn’t want kids. I’m just curious, no need to answer if you don’t want to get into that ๐Ÿ™‚
