Expected to have Children

If I had a $1 for every time this past week I was asked when we were going to have children I would be able to treat myself to a pretty nice night out on the town! For some reason we came across several people we haven't seen in a while and who we aren't close enough to know what is going on. I don't think I should have to explain myself to everyone. I feel bad for couples who decide not to have children. I am sure that have they to answer to acquaintances all the time as to why they don't have children. After about a year of marriage or so, especially if you are closer to 30, you are expected to be expecting! I know most of those people who quizzed us about our fertility calendar don't have a clue what we are going through or they wouldn't have asked. But a person doesn't always know what others are going through. Think before you speak and pry about something so personal. There are no rules in life that say you have to get married, you have to have kids, you have to have a dog and a cat and a white picket fence. That's what makes the world interesting.
