    I agree with this, and if you know that you are happy in your life then there is no way that you should listen to what other people have to say about it. At the end of the day, the decision that you make is absolutely none of their business, and this is something that they need to learn. If anybody says anything, just say that it is a personal choice and that you would appreciate it if other people would respect that. It should do the job.

  2. It makes me laugh that this should even be a topic – because why should anybody be made to have children that they don’t want? It’s ridiculous. Of course we shouldn’t be criticised for our decision. It is less likely to impact anyone else around us than if we HAVE children, anyway. NOT having them can never be an issue.

  3. Julez Fitzmond says

    Too right, why should women have to answer to anyone else about something as huge as having a child? It’s not anybody else’s business apart from the parents of the child, so people need to learn to keep their noses out. I hate when people make comments to me, not knowing that I have no choice in the matter, because it makes me feel second rate.. but I am trying to stop feeling like that because it’s not fair.
