    This is a great post!  I agree with you 100%.  Also, too many people rely on others (i.e. kids, spouse) for their own happiness.  That is a recipe for disaster too.  Make your own happiness.  Great post!

    If we think marriage and kids are the be-all-end-all of whether or not we’re going to be happy…all we’re going to be is disappointed. It’s the same with anything – if we depend too much on an outside source for happiness instead of taking some personal responsibility for it, it’s not gonna work.

    Having kids is also not the be-all-end-all of everything. We have friends who made the decision before they got married that they did not want to have children. And y’know what? The world didn’t end!!!! They’re still wonderful, loving, caring, kind, generous people. We shouldn’t discount others because their choices are different than ours.

    This is a great post.  I’m not married, and I don’t having kids, and I’m perfectly happy and content.  I know that I don’t want to have kids.  I may get married, I may not.  Either way, I’m okay with it.  I know that I don’t need to be married with kids to have a full, happy life.  Motherhood may be great for some – but it’s just not for me.

       So glad you feel this way. Marriage and childrearing are just experiences that you either have or you don’t. They’re not the end-all and be-all of existence! 🙂 Even giving birth, I looked back immediately afterward and thought, “Hmm, I could have done without that.” I didn’t NEED that experience to prove that I was a woman or a mother. And it’s irritating to me that society puts such importance on it…
