Pets Strengthen the Marriage Bond
I’ve read statements claiming that pets don’t bond a married couple like children do, yet, I’ve been married to my husband for more years than I care to admit – and one of the things that kept us together and interested in one another is an intense interest in our pets and in animal rescue.
Peaceful Holiday Travel
Camping was once our favorite summer activity but now most places are so packed with kids that we've recently done a flip-flop – camping and traveling in the winter and retreating to our cabin hideaway in the summer.
My Top Five Annoying Childfree Questions
What do you do with your time? What will you do with your time when you get old? Who will remember you after you die? Don't you feel you missed out on life's most important experience? Don't you get bored without someone (kids, grand kids, great grand kids) to worry about?
More Myths of Parental Enlightenment
I was dismayed to hear a respected and favorite author in a recent radio interview cite children as the path to self-knowledge, spirituality and recovery. This a large burden to place on children and, once again, suggests that childfree people lack love, self-knowledge and enlightenment.

The question that comes my way most often on this site is; "Where can I meet other childfree people?" It can be difficult to meet up with other couples and singles that don't have kids, especially when living in a rural area or small town.
Media Representation of the Childfree Choice
Discovery LLC claims to be the media voice of the people yet glaringly apparent is a distinct support for large families, active breeding without self-reflection and social conscience, and absolutely no attempt to showcase anyone with a positive childfree lifestyle.
Loss of Urban Open Space to Kids
In a fight over the local zoo taking over a beloved park single and childfree couples' needs are being sidelined in the discussion. We will probably loose our beloved park to the most aggressive citizens among us - the desperate and boring parents running on the treadmill of kidfotainment.
Losing a Life Partner
Many people think that childfree people have a more difficult time with the loss of a beloved life partner without the support of children. Former newspaper lifestyle editor Cara Swann has a different take on the subject. She lost her spouse several years ago and is childfree by choice.
Living Childfree and Community Connected
Childfree couples and singles are often subject to accusations of being “selfish” or “antisocial.” In my experience, childfree people are some of the most generous and actively community-oriented people I meet.
