Child-free couple want to stop the questions

Dear Amy

My husband and I haven't even been married a year, but already people are starting to ask, "Are you pregnant yet?"

My husband and I don't want to have children. Whenever I tell people that we aren't planning to have any kids, they seem to make it their personal mission to persuade me to have a baby, or assure me that this is only a phase and I will change my mind. How do we avoid these conversations?

We will be deflecting these questions for the next 50 childless years. Help!

My husband and I have been married almost 6 years, we are both 36 years old...and we are still also asked constantly..."When are you going to have kids?" or..."Better get moving you aren't getting any younger"...When I tell them that we don't want any we are then treated differently, like there is something wrong with us...I also find it very annoying that we can not be accepted for what we want to do in life. Why do people find it hard to understand that kids are not for everyone?

Why interact with breeders at all? Find other childfree people instead.
