Childfree Blog Posts and News Articles

Not Every ‘Child-Free’ Woman Is Going to Change Her Mind – As a childfree woman or man you may come across people who think you’re going through a weird phase in your life.  They may believe that you’re not secure in your decision to be childfree and that one day you’re going to change your mind.  The situation can turn ugly if you’re dating someone who thinks this about you. Your job is to be honest from the start.  Do you let people know from the get-go that you don’t want to have children under any circumstances?  Leave your reply below!

Childfree Is Not a Synonym for Wealthy Some childfree stereotypes are truly pervasive.  You’d be surprised to know how many people think that all childfree people are well-to-do in spite of their career choices.   After all, I’m currently typing on a keyboard made of gold.  (Just kidding.) My keyboard is platinum. I bought it at the annual meeting of really rich people who didn’t have kids.  This hilarious stereotype must have gotten to me.  Maybe I should read this blog post again?  Are all of your childfree friends rich and famous?  I want to know. Please comment below.

Child-free by choice: Real women who say “no” to kids – This article highlights four incredible childfree women of various ages and backgrounds.  It’s nice to see this type of post on a website that isn’t dedicated to childfreedom.  These women are happy they aren’t parents. They share some of the reasons they decided not to have children.  I thought 74 year old Linda was very entertaining.  Maybe next time they’ll interview childfree men.  Do you relate to any of these ladies?

The mother who says having these two children is the biggest regret of her life – This article is about a mother of two who never wanted to have children at all and is extremely interesting from the childfree point of view.  How often do you have the opportunity to read about a parent who truly wishes that they had stayed childfree?  As you read this post, you’ll find out exactly why you shouldn’t have a child to make your spouse happy.  Do you think children bring a marriage closer or can they challenge that marriage negatively?

My PERSONAL Reasons To Remain Child-Free – Childfree individuals are often asked why they aren’t parents, when most of the time parents aren’t asked why they didn’t remain childfree.   After all, only caring people interrogate the childfree. Inconsiderate people question parents.  This blog post lists the reasons why a young woman decided to stay childfree.  Do you share any of these sentiments?

I hope you enjoyed this childfree reading list.  What did you gain from reading these blog posts and articles? Let us know in a comment below, because I love hearing from other childfree people!
