Like many twenty-somethings, the question of parenthood comes to mind here and there. As we reach our 30’s we wonder whether or not we want to become parents and at what age it’s best to have them. In a recent article on Details magazine, the question of having children was the main topic. The writer, Brian Frazer, made it a point to express why him and his wife decided long ago that they would not have children of their own. In recent years, popularity has risen for those who have decided, with their partners, to not have a family. In 1990, 65% of adults said children were very important in a successful marriage. Flash forward to 2007 where only 41% of adults said this. With a drop of 25%, this may mean that new families will become more scarce. But what is the reasoning behind it? Some say they don’t want to deal with the stress and others say they are happy without children. Whatever the reason may be, opinions of parenting and raising families have changed drastically in the past 30 years. Independent couples are now more likely to stuff money into their savings account for 3 month long trips to Europe than their son’s college tuition. What’s your take on the topic?
