If Childless by choice, do you fear that you may come to regret your decision?

The following article addresses this very issue

    This is a little bit scary, and I’m sure that it is something that many people worry about. But you just have to think about the reasons that you have made your decision, and also try to consider how you are going to feel about that in the future. Ultimately, after a certain point, there is nothing that you can do as the decision will be taken out of your hands, so you simply need to ensure that you have other things that you can fill your life with.

  2. Yes I do sometimes worry. As I have said on the forums, I just keep it in my head and regularly go over my decision again to make sure that it was the right one. I am certain that it is but occasionally have the panic that at some point I will be too old and then it will be too late.

    If this was something that I was choosing, I am certain that I would make a huge effort to ensure that the decision was right. I can’t imagine finding that it was too late before changing my mind, that must be one of the worst things ever. But the only thing you can do is make sure you think over things again and again and again.

  4. This is about fear and as we all know, fear often turns us into procrastinators and less into action takers. Sometimes in life, you have to go with what your guts tell you. Making the decision not to have children cannot be one that anyone will take lightly, particularly in a world dominated by the ideal of the nuclear family. Anyone making such a decision might have always felt that way and so they should be left to live their lives in peace as opposed to being reminded constantly that they might come to regret their decision.
