So after the breakup I had with my ex, I’m once again seriously considering the pros of never having children.
I’d started to reconsider with him, because, well, he really wants to be a dad at one point (and despite my own feelings about him currently, I do think he could be a good father if he ever has children).
But even while dating I was and am very much of the thought that do not want to have biological children of my own. Ever. There are children out there that would benefit more from me adopting them, because otherwise they may end up just another part of the system until they are 18.
That said, I don’t really want to do that at this point either.
Children make things more difficult, and don’t come free (or cheap).
Whoever my future partner ends up being, I would rather children not be part of that.
Whether that means I put myself forever on birth control or get myself sterilized at some point, I don’t know.
