Single friends when you're married

We have lived together longer than we’ve had most of our current friends because we moved across the country together 4 years ago. So all our single friends knew what they were getting into and we have a dynamic that works well. And anyone who was a good enough friend to maintain the friendship long distance obviously doesn’t care about our relationship status. We did lose a few of our “fun friends” when we moved and probably won’t be replacing them since we don’t like going out anymore.

We recently moved back home and we’ve actually had a harder time making friends with people who are married because it seems like many of them are baby crazy and we don’t want kids. I feel like we’re in a pretty tough spot for friendship making, since our interests revolve more closely around hanging out as a unit now, but not talking about diapers. There just aren’t as many people with the same interests as us especially for more than a few years.

Definitely hasn’t affected that for me! a couple of my best friends are single, and literally NONE of my friends are married and we’re in our early 30s (though a lot are in serious partnership-relationships). 

I’m worried what will happen when we have kids though!
