Does not having children make for a better marriage?

This couple believe this to be the case


  1. GemmaRowlands says

    I don’t think that having children alone can make for a happy marriage – it all depends on what the couple actually want. For example, if they both want children, then achieving one of their dreams together may make them happier. But you also have to remember that there is a great deal of stress involved with having children, so there is a chance that this would take over anyway. Not only do you need to think about having children, but also about how you’re going to deal with raising them successfully when they arrive.

  2. Children do come along with a lot of stress, and I think that provided both the man and woman are happy with not having a child, they could be happier. But everyone is different, and there will always be things that you can argue about or get stressed over. The best couples will address their issues head on and talk about them to sort them out.

  3. Julez Fitzmond says

    If you can work together and be good parents then yes, I do think that having children can help. But if your parents styles differ, and you don’t manage to find a way around that, then there is a problem that you might not be able to get around.

    If you are the latter kind of couple, then for sure NOT having children would make you happier. I know of many couples who have made that choice and would now not have it any other way.

  4. Not having children will make for a better marriage only if both people within the relationship do not want children. If however, a couple is childless because only one person in the relationship does not want children then chances are that some resentment from the person who feels like their dream of having children has been taken away will set in and scupper any chance of a happy marriage.
