DINKs: Childfree By Choice

In a posting on the site, a woman in Birmingham, Ala., shared her surprise and dismay that friends were unsupportive when she and her husband told them they planned not to have children. “Too many conversations, painful moments and emotional emails to recount,” she wrote, “but the statement we feel best sums it all up was when a very close couple told us that they did not see us in their lives anymore as we were making the ‘unnatural choice.’ ” She said she and her husband have since found solace in charity work and activities like a barbecue competition team.

One good thing they found out about this is the kind of "friends" they have. Outcasting someone for such a personal decision is plain wrong. It's not their friends' say whether they shall have kids or not. Hopefully with the experience they will be open to receive new, real friends who will love them and accept them for who they are.
