You Are Focused on Your Career

You Are Not Financially Stable

Before when I was single I don't want any child because I think that it's just a burden. But now that I have a child of my own I can say that my life becomes more meaningful.

That's correct

Great points. Do it ready and it doesn't matter how old or young you are so it because you want to not because the world expects you too. Great post.

Yepp. I agree with all the points. Exactly how I feel. I never want any.

However it might not be possible to wait for everything to be perfect if you really want children. Also it is possible to have good job and progress in your career with children. Only men would have us believe otherwise!

Never want any of my own, but would be willing to adopt in a few years.

@Kashish Gupta - No they don't.

Kids suck! All they do is spoil your life.
