    Yes, please comment your vote on the topic… And rate it as well. Many commenters haven’t rated the topic on the suggestion board even though they commented favourably.

    Is DINK double income no kids? I wouldn’t necessarily post on a child free board, but I can see why one would make sense!

    I don’t really think it is necessary.  All of the things you listed as potential topics or posts all fit very neatly in other sections of the boards.

    • planning weddings without children invited – Etiquette or Logistics
    • wording childfree wedding invites – Etiquette or Paper
    • family drama resulting from your decisions about children – Family or Emotional
    • disagreements with SOs about Yes Babies or No Babies – Relationships or Babies or Parenting
    • birth control – Wellness
    • PERMANENT birth control – Wellness
    • abortion – Wellness
    • heath issues relating to Childfree – Wellness
    • women’s rights – The Lounge
    • breaking the societal norm and the fallout therein – The Lounge

    @Mrs.KMM: The arguement can be made the other way around as well.

    Babies – Family

    TTC – Wellness

    Pregnancy – Wellness

    Parenting- Family

    @MissBoPeep: the acronym SINK isn’t too attractive. I’d be willing to take them into the fold.

    I call myself CBC (childless – or childfree – by choice).  I love kids, but knew being childless was the right choice for me.

    Specifically for Child FREE I agree that there probably be a section under Nesting for that. I don’t think there needs to be a whole ‘nother section just for it though.

    I think a Childfree board would be a good idea. I would probably support it being called childfree instead of DINK both because I think acronyms can be confusing for those who don’t know them and as MissBoPeep pointed out, just because a couple doesn’t have kids doesn’t mean they both work.

    But I think it would be nice to have something specific in Nesting for people who don’t have children yet or who don’t intend to have children ever.

    But I don’t think women’s rights or abortion are necessarily issues only relevant to those without children either.
