Having raised several (awesome) kids, I can say that I totally understand not wanting to.

It’s a TON of work, financial drain, emotional drain, relationship strain, etc, for a couple decades.

I’m glad I have a bunch of cool kids (adults) to hang out with. But I’m also a little sad I didn’t get to travel more, or experience more museums/shows/beaches/etc.

It’s a trade-off. I don’t regret my choice, and I understand the child free appeal, but it’s nobody’s fucking business either way.

Good thing we aren’t living paycheck to paycheck and have money, and paid vacation time, so we can take a trip to save our marriage.

Of course, if we weren’t living paycheck to paycheck in the first place there’d be so much less stress and tension in our marriage that a counselor and vacation wouldn’t be necessary.

They want college graduates, regardless of major, for two main reasons:

  1. they’ve proven that they can tolerate tedious bullshit and meet deadlines


  1. they typically have crippling debt and are less likely to quit over bullshit because they NEED the paycheck.
