In response to a confession. You really don't get it. My point was maybe she damn well could afford the kids when she had them and shit happened. Maybe she got sick and couldn't work. Or one of her kids got sick. Or her DH got sick and can't work. Maybe her DH died. I used my situation because I was making damn good money, and in an instant, through no fault of my own, I lost ALL my income and gained a boatload of medical bills. If I had kids, there would have been a pretty damn good chance that I would have had some help to pay for medical expenses, food, etc. My step-sister's DH committed suicide. In an instant, she lost all their income and medical insurance (she was a SAHM). He had a $2 million life insurance policy that didn't pay in cases of suicide. She had to scramble to find a job, daycare, etc. while grieving her DH and tending to 3 young kids who didn't understand why dad was never coming back. Guess what? She needed some help until she got back on her feet. She could afford her kids when she had them.

In response to a confession. A state card because of the prescriptions? Most likely not. And you are wishing her situation on me? Ok I need to go out an get pregnant even though I can't afford it right. But wait- if I did get pregnant and get state help that is given here, I could quit my 60 hour a week job and go work part time because my medical,food, and housing would be free!!

In response to a confession. I think the real problem here is that you are caring what other people think. I have family members are still think that women are suppose to be in charge of the house, so if they see our place as messy, they talk to be about it instead of DH. I tell them that DH is in charge of cleaning, so they should talk to him about it. If they want to talk about food though, that is on me. Overall, I am smart and not afraid to show it, but try not to be arrogant. I exercise and eat well, because I want to be healthy. I don't wear makeup or dress stylishly or have big boobs, and haven't seen a way that has hurt me. I have no kids, because I didn't want to be in charge of children, and ditto for DH. In fact, I am only in charge of me, and DH is in charge of him. And there is no one whose opinion I care about that has ever had an issue with the way either of us live.

In response to a confession. Maybe she had a state card BECAUSE of all the prescriptions. I suddenly got very sick with a horrible disease a few years ago. I had to quit working because of it. I went from making $160K a year to $0. And I had tens of thousands of dollars of medical bills. It was a year and a half before I recovered and was able to return to work. You have no idea what people are going through. I wouldn't wish what I went through on anyone, but I'd be lying if I didn't say a part of me wants people like you to go through it just so you'll get off your judgmental high-horse.

In response to a confession. Seems like the people who have the least amount of money and education have the most kids. And then they get freebies from the government while I pay 500 a month thru my job that I work my ass off at for mediocre coverage. Woman in line in front of me at the pharmacy had 3 preschoolers, I watched as they bagged one prescription after another, then she pulled out her state card.

Bought Sea Of Thieves on Xbox, thinking it couldn't be *that* hard to play alone. Man was I wrong. This game sucks for solo players!

In response to a confession. and that's the thing, you shouldn't have to delve into your health history or finances to justify why you don't or can't have kids to anyone. it's just weird how parents and parents to be don't have to justify why they have or want kids. "because i want(ed) them" is enough. but the childless and childfree are almost always pressured to explain themselves as to why they don't.

In response to a confession. How is it possible that a man spends $1400 on dinner, a gift, and a family excursion all relating to his wife’s birthday, and his wife still thinks he’s an asshole? Because in all other facets of life, he is an asshole. Only a woman would understand this.

Embracing my breakup haircut (5 inches cut - hits right above shoulders) and tonight tried doing beachy waves with hot iron from a YouTube video. Actually, turned out nicely!

Once, when someone asked me why I didn't have kids, I got so frustrated I just told them the dead-honest truth: I am infertile due to PCOS and can't afford fertility treatments, or IVF and am not in a position to adopt. And I like my life just fine with no kids and I'm okay with it. That really shut them up.
