It's not really a response to the OP but other comments I saw.
    Srry didn't follow the thread of your thinking, makes sense now... I think it's a scandal that womens marraige prospects drop 40%....

    I mean, there are health benefits for bearing and nursing children, but there are also health risks. Humans are social and do better in social groups, but you can create a pseudo family without having children.
    Yea, but I am not convinced a couple sit down and say hey we need some workers lets get laid... lets face it there is a good few years investment before there is payback...

    I do hear what you are saying but it may be a product of rural culture being differently socally structured than urban ones...

    PS this is all supposition anyways

    Ok, so there's no rational reason to have a child. You're going to let that be the judge of whether or not you have a child?

    That's completely B.S. in my opinion, seriously.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    It would be the same mentality as someone in our culture hoping to land a good job. Of course you want a good job that pays lots of money. Of course you hope to get pregnant and have a son when you have sex.

    Children were considered part and parcel with livestock and land as far as prosperity went. Women who were unable to reproduce were shamed and considered cursed. Religions were devoted to the fertility of crops, of livestock, and of people.
    ‚ÄúThere are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old‚Äôs life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.‚ÄĚ

    I'm not NT, but I still see no good enough reason to reproduce. I'm definitely not doing it.

    having kids in this messed up world is irrational to me. the economic crisis alone is enough of a reason to avoid them. if you have trouble paying your rent and bills then bringing a kid into that would only make matters worse. also would put a burden on the social systems.

    also the main reason I don't have a kid is becuase the school system sucks.

    another reason.... flexability I want to do what I want and i also move alot. I don't want to be tied down.

    I also don't want to deal with the pain of pregnancy and all that hospital mess. plus its gross to deal with the nasty feeling you get 9 months.

    i also have anger issues-enough said

    i also value my sleep too much..... i need my 9 hours or i am a demon from hell and youd better prepare or die!!!!! mwhahahaha!

    The most reason of all-the planet is in peril, we dont need more people to make it even worse.

    there kept it honest and brutal-just the way I like it. no fakery like most people say.
