    Declining birth rate is a good thing tho. I can only imagine the potential nightmare places like China and India may face with their populations when it comes to allocating resources

    I would love to see a breakdown of birth rate by metro area and cost of living. That would probably tell the whole story very clearly.

    True. Which is why the marriage rate is down too. Men getting to smart for the traps.

    You’re kids are a true reflection of what you are as a MAN.
    If you don’t wanna reproduce, you’re weak because you can’t handle responsibility, love and commitment.

    i kinda can't disagree with this... especially if you subscribe to what living beings are alive for one solitary thing.

    Some people just don’t want kids man.

    You gotta really want kids to have them, I look around at Costco and restaurants and what not and all the people with babies look mad stressed/bored. Like they got something better to do than watch their baby eat ice cream for 45 minutes. :lol:

    Rather be an older pops who’s financially secure enough to take care of a kid or two than to be the young cool dad who’s scraping by to provide for his seeds. My mom did that and growing up wasn’t the best. So since you’re supposed to want better for your yout’dem, I’ll wait a few more years.

    Yea not sure why folks can't comprehend that.

    Everyone doesn't have the same goals in life.

    Everyone isn't complete with the same things in life.

    It doesn't have to mean they can't take the responsibility, they just might not FEEL like it.

    If that is weak, oh well.

    I think it is weak to assume everyone must follow the same script in life

    Exactly, besides the fact that if you don’t want kids but have them you probably aren’t the best parent...

    :rofl::rofl:

    And wait until they talk back. My sister gathers attention in public when she argues back n forth with her 9 year old. He’s got great argument skills for his age, burned her a few times and she gets furious:lol:

    It was tough at 23 with 2 kids. Missed out on a lot but It wasn’t that bad.
    You’re right. We have our own free agency and who am I to assume. But your kids do turn out better for society if you stay committed and show love.
