Bro it'll be a miracle if I make it past 42.

You think I'm gonna get a burning desire to knock up my SO in my late 30's?

Doubtful.
:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

I am in no way suggesting you should ever EVER have kids if you don't want them. Get snipped if you're 100% serious and see if the GF sticks around but talk, at length, before you do anything permanent.

In only 5 years, I went from 34 to 39 completely changing my path from international world traveler to covered in spit up and it was 100% not me driving that train.

I will also say this; having children opens you up to a level of deeper engagement with your feelings you've never before experienced. Grief hits WAY harder after kids. But so does love. And joy.

im pretty sure I remember telling you like 6 years ago how ridiculous the thoughts of marriage or ever having kids were to me. :hsd:

I agree about deeper feelings, but also a sense of meaning. I mean once i die there is really nothing else to live beyond me. I didn't create any art or music, I didn't make scientific or social progress. Sure, i enjoyed my life, but it had very little meaning.

I was full on the no kids train, though always felt I miiiight have some thoughts of kids, until my family recently bought some property that were developing with a shop and house etc. My brother is doubtful to have kids so I have thoughts of wanting to have kids to be able to pass it down to.

I am still on the fence though :o


I'll take it

In. 37 now, and I talked to my doctor about getting snipped when I was 22. Never really wanted kids, and now I can't imagine the world that I'd be leaving them if I had one. My SO was ok with it when we talked about it. Their mom had a serious mental break and was never the same after the first kid. I think it put SO off the idea.
