Never married, shacked up four different chicks, knocked a couple of 'em up. Marriage BIG Mistake.

I prefer away games--go to her house and leave by the morning.

Why is it that society and people in general have this expectation for you to get married, and when you don't want to, people think that there is something intrinsically wrong w/ you?

Good question. I think there's an expectation that people will get married and have kids. If you don't do both, you're not in the "mainstream", but being in the mainstream isn't always where a person wants to be.

Nope never married and no children (condoms do work for those of you that are apparently unaware). I have never understood the point of marriage. If two people love each other why do they have to go and get a legal document to let everyone else know that they do? Anyway, for me I've found the key to a happy love life is multiple draft picks! :D

Just of informations sake...what is there to be proud of that you "knocked a couple of 'em up"? Unless, of course you are at least acting like a real Father and helping support the kids personally and financially.

If not, then I would agree with DJ's Left Nut in thinking you are disgusting and irresponsible.

I'm not society, but I have no problem with people choosing never to marry.

People freak out all the time when I tell them that my wife and I don't want kids. So, I totally know what you mean. It's just expected, and I think that's a shame.

I'd like to have two wives at the same time, both living in the same house. Perhaps I could become Morman? My wife has a very very hot brunette friend that would be perfect for wife #2.

The house would be very clean, and the threesomes would be nice.

But if you got a divorce, they would each get half leaving me with nothing. :-(

So, I'm talking with dad the other evening, and he's telling me about a conversation he was having with some co-workers and their wives. They got to talking about grandkids, and he mentioned my brother's three kids. I guess one of the wives asked, "What about your daughter?" He told er he didn't think I was ever going to get married.

Anytime I date someone, my mom always tells me, "You don't have to get married. Be your own person."

So, unlike normal parents, mine don't push me into marriage at all. I don't know. I just think it's weird for them not to.

Never married, no desire to ever get married or have kids. I love my niece and nephew, and they are a blast to visit, but I don't know if I'd make a great father even if I wanted to.

My mom used to bug me all the time about it, but fortunately I have a younger brother who married, went old-school catholic on us, and so now she'll have plenty of grandkids. She doesn't ask me about it anymore. :)

Kansas

Under Kansas Statute 23-101 (2002), both parties to a common-law marriage must be 18 years old. The three requirements that must coexist to establish a common-law marriage in Kansas are: (1) capacity to marry; (2) a present marriage agreement; and (3) a holding out of each other as husband and wife to the public.

And that is fine if you value the new life of kid birthday parties, always being tied down to something, PTA meetings, T-ball games, paying $800 a month in day care, and contributing all this money to a kid who may end up being a scum ball anyway. I don't want to be bothered w/ that shit.

My kid is far and away the greatest thing to happen in my life. The greatest blessing by far. That being said I got started really late. I played my single card and independent side about as far as I could before bringing the little man into the world. I have no regrets but there is a down side to waiting tht long. I am not sure how much longer my parents will be in this world to enjoy him and ifhe foows my path I may never see grandkids but you gotta play it as you see it at the time. I was pretty selfish when I was younger. I have friends who do not have kids who are older and are not going to have them. I actually feel a little sorry for them.

How old are you? I'm asking because a few years ago I didn't really care about having kids, and whenever friends who were in their early 20s would have one, I'd simply think they were ruining their lives.... but now, having watched a few friends' kids grow up, even if it's only to 5 or 6, it's made me realize how little perspective I had before. Granted, I still don't think it's a great idea to have kids at an early age, I now think it would be pretty cool to one day raise a couple.

If I end up getting married, which I hope I do or at least find someone to put up with me, I don't see me having kids.

Not saying I am against it. I just don't see it happening.

Hey I'm 30 and right now see no reason to get married and I'm pretty sure I'm too immature and selfish for kids. I have 6 siblings with 15 neices and nephews so I spend plenty of time with and love all those kids, but I am damn thankful that I can shag ass out when shit gets crazy. Like this weekend they are all down at the lake. Eight adults with roughly ten kids (the oldest being 12) in one house............no thanks. If I had a kid though with as close as my family is they would want to be right in the mix with all their cousins. Just not my idea of a good time. Maybe some day the right girl will come along and completely change the way I look at all of it? She'd have to be some kind of something that's for sure. I just see all my friends and siblings constantly doing everything for their kids and maybe have one or two nights in an entire month that they get to do what they want to do...........always wishing there were more nights like that. Why intentionally sign up for that? I know alot of people are happy as all hell and feel like they're shitting in high cotton with their marriage and children.........I just don't ever see it being for me. Like my life and being able to just do what I want to do. Maybe that makes me weird?

You are correct as long as you don't do number three as well. It may have been put into place due to rural families, but it applies to the entire state.

This guy is my personal hero. Talk about not letting past experience weigh you down. You go, guy.

As for me, married at 26, divorced at 40, now 43 and living with my girlfriend, but between you, me, and the thousand or so Chiefs fans here, we won't last long.

So I'll be single again soon, I figure, but I still want to have the marriage and kids, and since women my age mostly have kids in school, or have just dried up, looks like I'm on my way to being the social group's nominal Creepy Old Guy that's going to hit on all of the way-too-youngs out there.

So, I'm talking with dad the other evening, and he's telling me about a conversation he was having with some co-workers and their wives. They got to talking about grandkids, and he mentioned my brother's three kids. I guess one of the wives asked, "What about your daughter?" He told er he didn't think I was ever going to get married.

Anytime I date someone, my mom always tells me, "You don't have to get married. Be your own person."

So, unlike normal parents, mine don't push me into marriage at all. I don't know. I just think it's weird for them not to.My parents are the same way. I'm 28, so I suppose I should be married or close by now... My grandparents and aunts/uncles on the other hand are constantly playing match maker... Of course I've never brought any of my girlfriends around the extended family, so that could have something to do with it.

Well, as long as that's your only criteria, it shouldn't be too difficult to find someone still dumb enough.
Tempting as this is for a shallow one-liner, that's not my only criteria, but when you're 43 in a room full of 30-somethings and a few in the 20's, it turns me in to that crusty old guy in the bar. You know the guy. Eech.

Oh good Lord Roy. Get that thing snipped already. There's nothing wrong with enjoying sex. There's something immensely wrong with fathering children over and over again with somebody you can't get along with outside of the bedroom.

well, unfortunately down here you cant get that done without her signature. i would've done it a long time ago, but she wouldn't sign for it. but now that we are seperated i should be able to get it done with no problem. 3 kids are enough as the way it is for me.

Never been married and always lived by the mantra that I want kids, but not now. The older I get, the more I think Im never going to want kids. Im too selfish and still enjoy single life.

Im still on my first marriage, will be 4 years on September 16th of this year, but me and wife are seperated. Wish I had never gotten married, it has been drama since the day I said I DO.

The only great thing that came out of this marriage does is my 3 wonderfull kids that I love to death.
So let me get this straight...you couldn't get along from day one...but you still chose to knock her up three times?

To each his own.

When my parents were alive and elderly they had significant health issues / hospital stays and could have ended up in nursing facilities. That is when it really hit them the value of having children.

The hospital staff had to be more attentive - they knew we were there. They avoided nursing homes since they had adult children to stay with. They had help as they aged with yard work, heavy lifting, moving that refrigerator or new washing machine. They had younger minds to attend their doctor visits with them when their own minds were beginning to fail. They had us to look after their bills, help with their banking plus a myriad of other tasks that older people sometime need help with.

And many of the people who laughed at me for having 5 kids, now are envious of the great family and beautiful grandkids we have. (And yeah, they do costs $$)

There is no right or wrong desision about marriage or kids, but when you are young making life impacting decisions, be sure to think it through very carefully.

And good luck!

First marriage. Going on 18 years in September. I know there are some single people that are perfectly happy with that and that's fine. But I have been lucky and blessed to have found my soul mate. That, to me, is much better.

this, My wife and I are going on 19 in december... wouldnt trade our time together for anyone or anything....

So can someone maybe do a breakdown of the cost of a child, even indirect costs over the course of 22 years and when they get out of college?

Lots of variables. Where you live impacts the costs. Public or private school? How many kids you have also impacts the per child cost as some costs are lowered for the second and subsequent children; some costs are raised if you have above a certain number of children.

I did a workup on the cost and came up with a figure of about a gazillion dollars, give or take a hundred or two.

Keep in mind that's just a rough estimate.

Say you have two kids.

For the first 6 years at least, you probably pay $800 a month in daycare. You probably pay $300 a month for the both of them in food for 18-22 years. Buy them a car, $6000 each. Lets say you just help and pay half of their college education $30,000 each. Expenses in gas taking them places, extra utilities, clothes, sports equipment, school supplies etc at least $200-250 a month.

So this is an extremely low end estimate, considering you don't send them to private school, buy them anything extravagant, not even including what you have to buy them for birthdays, special events, xmas, insurance, etc etc.

I calculate it will cost at least $200,000 for two kids in your life time. This doesn't even account for indirect costs.

That doesn't account for any extraordinary items such as special needs....

I'm happily married to the first wife, unless she ambushes me with the F ing tweezers to pluck my eyebrows against my will while I'm doing something.

Get 1 stray brow and it triggers her whacka-mole reflex. It may end up being the end of that woman.


That said, she's given me 3 great kids and there is no price tag for the way they hit your legs at a run when you walk in the door from work or being gone. It's the secret of life.

Well, my gazillion dollar estimate was for my kids - born in the early 70's through early 80's. I'm sure when inflation is taken into account, that figure would come closer to 11tygazillion now.

Gonna have kids? Get a good job. Good luck!
