    I can’t remember ever wanting to have children. I want a ton of dogs and cats, but no kids. When I was in my teens & 20s, people kept telling me I’d change my mind. I’m 35 and I still haven’t!

    @__always: I didn’t vote. We may never be able to have children because of my DHs medical problems but with that aside we are CBC. Even though the chance of us having kids right now is pretty close to impossible we are still using precautions because it just isn’t the right time for us (I am still in school and we enjoy our travel). I want to be a parent someday but certainly not right now

    Hopefully we get some blissfull years as DINKs Wink

    My husband and I are childfree by choice. We enjoy our quiet and our freedom, as well as lots of time for each other.

    I’ve learned not to tell people about our choice because it leads to rude comments and inappropriate questions.

    Part of the reason I don’t want to become a mother is I am disgusted and terrified by pregnancy and childbirth. The thought of not having any control over my body turns my stomach. I don’t need to be humiliated during medical exams and during birth.

    I wanted children until I looked after some demanding babies.

    I have kids.  I was a young mom at 21, having my twins at 24.  I now have a wonderful step daughter as well.  Its tough some days but I wouldn’t change it for the world.  My kids make me smile everyday

    I am CBC. I have never pictured myself a mom. Sometimes I don’t even want to be responsible for my pets, let alone a human being. 

    I have never changed a diaper. Baby puke grosses me out. How babies are so sloppy grosses me out. A shitty diaper grosses me out. 

    I’ve always had a nice shape and can’t even think about it drastically changing. 

    And my #1 reason for being CBC, I do not want to give up my life!

    Enough said.

    I plan on having kids someday, but I really would prefer to adopt than give birth.  I’ve just never had that urge to be pregnant.  I know for some woman that is very important to them, but I’ve just never wanted to.

    While I do plan to have kids will never understand why people bash or make rude comments towards those who are CBC.  It always just baffles me when I see it debated because I can’t imagine myself caring whether or not someone else has kids.

    Currently we are CBC, but eventually (5-7 years from now) we might want to have one child.

    We’re CBC right now. I know people tell me that will change but only time will tell.

    At the moment we are enjoying being DINKs and I really can’t imagine adding any more responsibility to my life.

    CBC is defined by actively choosing to live a childfree life.

    If you want to have a child later on, you aren’t really CBC.

    CHILDFREE BY CHOICE! My Fiance originally wanted kids and he sulked for months when I told him I wasn’t interested in becoming a parent.  Not long after that, our niece came along, and he is now firmly on the CBC team too.

    I want a bunch of puppies, but no kids.

    No babies here.

    35 years old… not going to change. Have a great life, and can’t see a dependant enhancing that.

    @PositiveThinking:  Got it, we’re still on the fence and may change our mind later though! 🙂
