I think going in eyes wide open in any decision you come to is a very smart thing to do-props to you guys. We’re in the same boat. Fence sitters-have been for the past 2 years and will continue to be for the next two. I think for the most part I can go either way and be happy so it will probably come down to my husbands choice. Right now we like our freedom and sleepy mornings and we are not ready for a child and everything that comes with it. No extra demands other than our pets. We personally will be doing a lot of research on both sides over the next two years, especially since we don’t have any family or friends with kids in our circle (as of yet). We know a few CF older couples with all different stories and how they got there, so we have that covered.

I’ve been reading the sub/Reddits; childfree, fencesitter and oneanddone. They are a wealth of info over there! Everyone has been reccomending the book “The Baby Decision:How to make the most important decision of your life” by Merle Bombardieri and it’s on my to-read list. 

You don’t have to make any decisions right this minute, so good luck figuring it out-you aren’t the only ones and you can always come back here and commiserate with the rest of us 😊

I too found it hard to relate to my peers. 

Your comments about wanting to focus on travel and avoid screaming kids resonates with me. 

When I hear kids crying, I want to run away because that sound is too annoying.
