So far in our marriage, my husband and I have chosen to not procreate. There are a lot of reasons, which I am not going to take the time to explain in depth right now. Most of those reasons are very personal and that is kind of the point of this page. When people I don’t know well find out we have no plans to have children, it’s like I have just told them that I am really from the planet Krypton and, oh by the way, I can fly. I have never wanted to be like everyone else, mostly because I’ve never quite fit in. So somewhere along the line I decided it was easier to rebel against the status quo. However, when challenging the status quo means informing everyone I know and everyone I meet that the expectations they hold for others do not apply to us…that came with a lot of social and emotional baggage I did not expect. One of these social side effects is isolation. Here’s where NO KIDS comes in. There have to be others out there who have either chosen to not have children or have had the choice made for them. I am certain that we have similar experiences and issues. So I want this to be a place where we can find one another, come together, and find encouragement.
For now, the plan is to post links here for the blogs for those of us living with NO KIDS.
