I came across this great article the other day, I Don't Want To Have Children and it was very insightful and as usual it got me to thinking. Although the husband and I are pretty sure we want to have children we're just not in a rush to have them. We are cool with this decision and know of other couples doing the same but I still find it very interesting that society still has this taboo thinking in 2012 that women are either crazy for not wanting to have children or that if you don't have them by a certain age then it's never going to happen.
This subject always touches a nerve with me because we are always being asked this same question over and over and it just gets tiring after a while. Even before my husband and I became married we were living together and learning how to take care of ourselves and each other. Although this was the case, many asked us, "So when are you two going to have kids, I assume since you've been together so long," yada, yada, yada. Yes, we've been together for a long time but that doesn't mean we need to start popping out babies because that's what is suspected.
Our goal before kids was to get married, enjoy our marriage with just the two of us, travel a bit more, get settled to where we want to be, living wise and when God is ready to bless us with a child then he will.
We have been blessed to make it to where we are today and we know their is no perfect time to have kids but when we are ready to dive in we will and not a minute before.
Ladies, do feel the baby pressure from others? Are you being treated as if your clock is ticking to no return?
