    It varies from person to person. Some people are content with never having kids. Others (like me) really want to have kids.

    Why would it be bad?  There are a lot of advantages, frankly.

    The point is that we have choices and should have choices.  It's perfectly fine to choose not to have children.

    It's totally a personal choice.  It's not good or bad.

    It might be bad/sad if having a child is really important to you and, for whatever reason, you cannot have a child.

    If having a child is not important to you then (IMO) just don't have one. Maybe your family/culture expects you to continue your line but I don't think anyone should feel bad if they decide parenthood just isn't for them.

    Think of all the freedom you'll have if you remain childless and all the money you'll save, plus you could offer to babysit your friends children, then you get to be the cool 'aunt/uncle', then hand them back.

    I suppose if you had your heart set on being a parent, but if not, no it isn't a bad thing. and there is always adoption. My wife and I adopted our son after she had a miscarriage and hysterectomy shortly after we were married.

    Not necessarily. If you know how to be mature when you have to, it doesn't really matter. If you're always childish and you don't know how to act mature when you're needed to, I think you need help.

      Katherine, it is not nice of David to mock your dyslexia. The OP is asking if it is a bad thing to not have children, rather than if it is bad to behave like a child.
