Not all couples want to have children, and the reasons can be very diverse. Even if it still seems unpopular in the eyes of some, everyone determines for themselves the type of life and marriage they wish to lead, the important thing being that both partners agree on the choices to be made. This is the case of two American spouses who explained their wish not to become parents, at least for a certain time , convinced that they would be unhappy if they decided to have children.
Do all women dream of becoming mothers? Not really, and if we meet the person who thinks exactly like us, it is certainly easier to make the relationship work. This is the case of Taylor Vasu , 28, and her husband Justin, 27. Both say they are happily married and have no intention of having children, which would spoil their serenity. Moreover, they admit to being terrified by this idea which would compromise both their union and the type of life they wish to lead.
Taylor and Justin have been together for six years and love to go on vacation: they take about twelve trips a year , planning their days at the last minute, such as going out to lunch, working out and sleeping in on the weekends. All this is certainly impossible with young dependent children.
“We are terrified of the impact children would have on our lives. Having them now would be irresponsible, even financially,” the woman said. Their current priority is to save money so they can buy a house. “We want to wait until we are financially ready to become parents and give our children the best life possible.”
Taylor added that she fears a child will disrupt her marriage , as has happened to some unhappy people she knows and sees often. “When you have children, the weekends are over and so are the evenings out. Life revolves around them and you forget about yourself and your marriage. Maintaining your independence in a relationship is very important, but with children it is difficult to maintain your identity.”
To those who try to remind her that time flies for a woman in this field, Taylot replies, “You’re just mad at the consequences of your own actions, I don’t want to be unhappy like you. We can do whatever. we want, when we want, and I don’t want to give it up.”
Justin concluded, “We’re on the same page. I want kids, but right now I just want to enjoy my time with her and our relationship.”
