having children
I come from a broken, alcoholic family, so a stable home and family life has always been a dream of mine.

I used to worry that I'd be unwittingly ostracized from our little group because I didn't have or want children. Instead, our respect for each other has only strengthened.
not having children
It's far more acceptable than it once was for committed couples to choose not to procreate, but people with kids often just cannot comprehend why anyone would make this choice.
I didn't want to be a mother, but my husband wanted to be an author. So I agreed to support his dream.
