Wish I could say the same, my 4 adult kids still live at home (all attending school). My wife and I don't see any grandkids in our immediate future.

My wife and I were 20 when we married. Waited until 30 to start having kids. Here's the drawback to that: Friends that got married at 24-25 but had kids right away, all their kids are out of the house and they are empty nesters while we still have our kids living at home. I can't see retirement in the near future!

Decided since i'm 15 : no children for me. I'm 40 now...

The woman i'm with has 4 ones (now 3, one is gone...). We used to live all together for about 3-4 years (we're a couple since 2002) but i left, i was becoming mad! We see us again now, but i won't live there anymore. Surely later because i love her, but i can't stand children...

Congrats to all very brave parents, it's really a work, you know!!!

Your Dad didn't say anything about grandkids did he? I'll bet not.
When I married in '85 we got to stay in the guest bed when we visited. When the kid came in '89 it was "glad to see you, I've got a hotel room for you".
I told my kid when you have your own don't figure on grandpa baby sitting till it's house broke. Guys only want to have to change diapers on their own kids.

I'm 38, and I don't see myself having any kids. Of course, I haven't met Ms. Right yet, either....but at this point, I have enough trouble taking care of myself, much less kids.

I never wanted kids. The perfect number of children is zero!
Before I got married, I made it clear the zero children rule was not negotiable.

Wife and I have 3 Boston Terriers, That is all they are getting We get it alot, but we have no plans for kids. We are kinda selfish I guess and enjoy being able to just pick up and leave any time and do what we want. Dogs don't seem to mind if you buy them the cheap food so you can get beer and wine. They also don't mind the next day when you have a headache and want to lay in bed till noon, they just lay there with you

I was just thinking about my parents
My dad was born in 1913 so he would have been 101 last month. My mom was born in 1914 and she would be 100 next month. Just wondering what they would be thinking about what is going on these days since they died quite a while ago. Anyone care to share?

Parents act as if they own my new computer
Hey there. I am Sean, I just had a new computer delivered yesterday. My situation deals with my overprotective parents who I still live with. I want to remove the preinstalled commercial virus scan trial Norton but I can't because they tell me. I can but what am I going to say that they won't jump...

Why do my parents like Norton so much?
I used to use it, now I've switched to other AV software. I felt it was slowing my computer down a lot. My parents used to use it too, and I convinced them to try another antivirus, and they also agreed that it affected their pc's performance. What do you think is so great about it; it seems to be...

A question to the parents of Seven Forums :)
Hey guys. I was wondering, how many of you guys have kids? If so, how many do you have and how old are they? Oh, and how much allowance do you give them per month? My parents only give me like $150 a month and I can barely afford to do much =/. I am 16 btw.

Parents are so cute!
Hi everyone. Anybody else here have a mom and dad that are, well, shall we say, just "not into" computers as much as the rest of us, so that when an ad for Windows 7 is shown on TV, they will literally ask, "So what IS Windows 7 anyways?" :D Hehehe. I love my parents dearly. But I think...
