40 years old and no children. Regrets? (Page 2)
stlfourlife53: Dont live your life full of regrets. Im soon to be 33 years old in a couple of days and I dont have no children. I dont regret it because my life is good if you ask me. If that time comes where Im a father to a child or children then I'll embrace it and try to be the best father I can possibly be. As of right now I'm just trying to enjoy the life I do have.

sbrendask1: 40 is marginal for a successful pregnancy but not too late. If you want kids get your favorite guy busy. Men and women are still necessary in the baby making department, it’s a lot of fun.
Metaphorguy: I'm 34 with no kids. Never been married. Looks like I'm on the path to be 40 with no kids, which is fine. Kind of an overpopulation in lots of areas. I see homeless people everywhere. Still see ads where kids grow up with not even basic food needs met. I have a niece though so my family is not dying out. Maybe I will adopt later on if I land on a lot of wealth or get richer. I can barely afford to live in an apartment so I'm not looking to have kids anytime soon.

Plumpcherry: The one thing I can say about the Wireclub is we talk about a lot of real issues other than sex and beer.
Warrior Goddess: i will be 40 next year i never saw myself as having kids i raised my exs daughter from 3 yrs to just shy of 13 when her father remarried
kevkam221: i always wanted kids of my own and i've never regretted it 'whoever says they never missed having kids or did'nt want kids don't know what they missing ' i know of a few mates of mine regretted never having kids ' they feel out of place whenever fathers meet [ fathers day for example or even mothers day ] i'm proud of my achievements of bringing another offspring into this world 'and even more proud i have grandchildren ' a lot of banter about these parentless people saying they don't miss it ' do they really
Warrior Goddess: I raised my exs daughter. And im glad i cant have children. My father left to many physical and mental scars for me to have my own. And you can be a parent with out giving birth to a child. Some of us know that its for the best that we dont have children. I tried to raise my daughter. My niece calls me mom. She looks like a twin of my younger self. I couldnt do it. I was to paralyzed with fear over losing her and her being hurt like i was to be a parent to her. So before you judge those that say they dont miss it; think about the reason maybe they cant.
FunkyBiscuits82: I don't think it's selfish to not want kids. Some people wanna be parents, some do not. Nothing wrong with either.
Charly W: As a child, I always dreamed of having my own family one day. My sister has 2 daughters and from both, I'm the aunt only I'm 40 now and glad I don't have any children because my sister worked her ass off to give those 2 all they desired, 1 is 24 and the other 28 but both disasters of young women and the one of 28 isn't welcome by me anymore because she was 4 times in jail and even how hard I try to help her she won't take any advice from me because she simply said look Charlotte 1st you aren't my mother and 2nd who are you to tell me what to do while you don't have any children can't you get any? I became furious and since I said I give it up for me it is done here I don't need to see that brat anymore because who says to her own aunt can't you get any children?
Iris is the 24 years old a big mouth and very brutal only I know she acts like that because her sister and I as good aunt try to prevent she becomes the same monster as her sister. I was 18 when a friend of mine told me he had a recording studio and I was from wow cool so he told me let me hear what you have in you, after a song he was from dude this is amazing I wanna record with you so since then I was in the music industry, touring a lot being busy all the time and at such times you don't think about having children + even Iris is my cousin for me she is like my daughter.
LoveFishing: My daughter had several miscarriages, she’s not able to have children. It’s heartbreaking. Not having children isn’t always a choice.
