Childfree as Families of Two - Technorati Lifestyle

Technorati Lifestyle by Laura Carrol
"While not having kids by choice is becoming more accepted with each generation, some attitudes remain a bit more stuck.

One is the idea that two people in a committed relationship who live together and have no kids by choice aren’t considered a “family.” The childfree feel they are a family, but aren’t often seen that way by others with children or those who want them."

My husband and I encounter this all the time. "Do you have a family?" "Yes - there's my husband and me." "No, I mean do you have a *family,* I mean, children." It's insulting, but unless you're reproducing, you don't count, it seems.
