Has anyone else every been made to feel inadequate for choosing not to have children? I had step children from a young age they were months old and 2 when I met my partner, so we had his children to look after and enjoy as life went on we were getting older and they were our focus, by the time I was early 30s I was constantly being harassed by everyone to have kids, when I said I didn’t want to have any people acted like I was a broken woman ….and couldn’t fathom my reasons or decision even my GP …. it’s not such an issue now but back then it was horrible… I feel I raised kids and parented as much as any biological mother did but society never quite saw it that way.

  • How awful of people. Good on you for raising your family the way you did. Having more kids biologically may have caused so much more stress. No one should be judging what you do or don’t do with your body/family
