I decided in my 20s that I didn't want children, and married a man not too keen on kids too. Initially everyone seemed okay with the idea. But as my friends have become parents, we are surrounded by people questioning our decision. Everyone tries to find what is 'wrong' with us for not wanting kids. That we are missing out on a crucial part of being human. It's gotten to the point where we have stopped hanging out with people. I don't know how to explain that I am quite happy with my decision!
