Being Childfree in Miami - The Miamian

Being Childfree in Miami - The Miamian

"So it’s established not everyone in the world wants kids, so of course a nightlife mecca and glitz capitol like Miami Beach wouldn’t be any different. After all, the fast living is perfect for couples with no dependents and on any given night the town is full of celebrities – a demographic known for going without children. Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Eva Mendes, and George Clooney all have gone public about their desire not to have kids.

Miami Beach was recently named Maxim’s number one US party city. At the same time, children make up only 12.8% of the town.

However, in the rest of Miami it’s a different story. Of course there are rich neighborhoods like Cocoplum and Brickell that boast the occasional single millionaire tycoon, but most suburbs are full of the nuclear family. Mom, dad, two-and-a-half kids, and a family dog. A lot of the culture contributing to Miami’s melting pot are family oriented, and it may be a little isolating for a children individual in Kendall or Pinecrest to feel at home."
