For most child-free women over the age of 30, our wombs—and what we choose to do with them—far-too-often become the subject of other people's inquiries and judgments. One way to handle being shamed for opting out of motherhood is to develop a good sense of humor about it. But one woman made a joke about not wanting to be a mom, and then got shamed for THAT. It's almost like....we can't win???
Okay so straight to it. My husband and I (both in our early 30s) have been together for over a decade and made the decision to not have kids. I like kids, I have nieces and nephews, we just don't want them for our own reasons. He had a vasectomy which only a few people know about. Our families are aware we don't want kids as they've asked this before during different major life events (our wedding for instance).
