Been with husband for 8 years, married for 2. Happily CF!! We chose this lifestyle so we could travel, retire early, and not always worry about money. I knew I wanted to be CF ever since I was a kid myself. I’m in my mid-30s and I’ve never felt the urge to have a child.

pussinboots83 :  I hear you on the dog thing! I desperately want one (husband is more on the fence) but just can’t commit the time or resources at the moment. Whenever people bingo me I’m like ‘look. I LOVE dogs. I desperately want one. But I wouldn’t get one now as they’re too much work and too expensive. I hate children. They are 10 times more work and cost 10 times.more money than a dog. So why on earth would I have a child?!’

Met my Fiance when I was 20, told him then that if he thought there might be a chance he would want kids to please jog on. We’ve been together 7.5 years and are firmly CFBC. Hopefully soon to be a dog mum!

 

barbie86 :  What does “bingo” mean?

I’ve never wanted kids. Married 6 months, told Darling Husband about 6 hours into dating ๐Ÿ˜‚ 33, doubt I’ll change my mind. Our siblings/friends are all having them now and with every one he becomes even firmer and oh so thankful that we can go home to our childfree (but fur baby full) lives. Right now we have one 13.5yo cat. Had to say goodbye to my 13yo GSD last April, which was the hardest because she was my baby.

barbie86 :  preach. Darling Husband and I would love a dog but we just can’t make that kind of commitment right now. When he becomes a stay at home pet dad then we will revisit.

NikkiBee18 :  a bingo is basically one of the commonly trotted out comments/criticisms that the non CFBC can be found of, like, ‘it’s different when they’re your own’, ‘you don’t know real love until you have a child’, ‘who will look after you when you’re old?’, etc etc. They’re called bingoes because you can basically fill up a bingo card with them lol; can’t link a pic on my phone but if you Google childfree bingo it will probably come up.

catskillsinjune :  so sorry about losing your furbaby, I can’t imagine how hard that was. Between my 2 brothers I have a niece and 3 nephews. One is 11 and the others are all under 2. I love them to pieces but I get exhausted just watching their moms chase them for hours at family events. Arriving home only to be greeted by meowing is where it’s at.

I  am completlely childfree (unless you count dogs?) and find babies and children absolutely intolerable and gross. I also have some unpopular opinions about pregnancy/parents/parenting too.  ๐Ÿ˜‰   

I’ve never wanted kids and thankfully my parents never cared so I’ve never gotten pushed to have them. My Boyfriend or Best Friend is cool with not having kids as well. 

I would definitely classify myself as militant childfree. I’ll bitch to anyone who will listen (and many who won’t) about how I detest children and parents.

Fully CFBC here.  Well past my childbearing years and delighted with my choice.  Dh been snipped, so he is on board with the whole concept.

We’re very happy with our German Shepherds 

Recently excoriated for failure to show proper reverence toward children and mommies.  Which is a touch ironic since I worked successfully for many years with emotionally disturbed children and adolescents.  My specialty being diagnosis and treatment of same.

Never felt the need to bring one home with me, though.

Infants and toddlers irritate the crap out of me.  Their voices, OMG.  They don’t sound human.  And something always oozing out of some orifice.

*raising hand*

I’m in my early 40s and my SO is in her late 40s.  I knew from a young age I never wanted kids. She always assumed she’d have kids when she was younger, just bcause it seems to be the default.  

It’s surprising how often we get BINGO’d as a same sex couple.  It’s amazing how many near strangers take it upon themselves to tell us that “lesbians can go to the sperm bank, you know!!!”  

We have 2 cats and have been considering adding a dog to the family. Otherwise, we travel a lot (often taking advantage of last minute special!) and do a lot of volunteer work.

sassy411 :  OMG, the oozing out of the orifices! This! Why?! Or just having like mess; sticky hands/faces make me gag, urgh. It is so gross.

Also, is it just me or is there like this certain smell that babies/toddlers/small kids have? I can smell it and can’t describe it, but it makes me physically gag. Maybe what they eat? I’m not sure.

misslucy :  oh wow, like you don’t know about surrogacy/sperm donation?! So condescending! I’ve heard this before though from friends in same-sex relationships. And similar for older couples (‘but you can adopt!’)
