So if you're 60,70,80 then what? what's life like then when you're all alone?

I have thought about this too. What is life like if you don't have kids and your old and all alone and don't have any children to look after you?


Isn't that a myth? Most adults in the US don't take care of their parents in old age. They don't have the time and are too busy with their own families. Most American adults rarely even see their parents. My cousin is a lawyer in Las Vegas but he won't even see his own mother in the same city. He just doesn't give a shit. When she needs a ride to the airport, he won't even help.

So you can't depend on that, at least not in the US. Why not save up your money and hire a maid to take care of you. Or do that overseas where maids are cheaper? Or keep fit and healthy so you can move even when you're old? The guy who invented The Juiceman is 90 yet still very fit, active and energetic because he juices his vegetables everyday.

You gotta maximize your life while you're still young. Not sacrifice everything just for security in old age. That's not a way to live.

I am 47 and without kids. I have not regretted it one bit. In fact, I love the wealth I have been able to accumulate. I love that I can take 4 international trips per year. I love that I live a leisurely existance outside of work.

Kids are overrated. They are a burden and a huge expense. People with huge ego need children to give them what they think is immortality.

I am starting to believe that children are the biological imperative of women and the men who are bamboozled by those women.

I like children when they are between the ages of 3 and 10. They are cute, innocent and fun. The older they get past the age of 10 the less I get along with them. Between the ages of 13 and 18, they are a nightmare IMO...especially girls. I do not think I will ever have children. When I was younger and more energetic, it was definitely on my "to do" list. However, the older I get, the more daunting that task looks to me. I am also very worried about the future and would feel irresponsible to bring children into a world that is about to collapse. I already have 13 nieces and nephews from YOUNGER siblings with two more on the way. I think that is enough...I don't need to be adding to it.

Since I am planning on teaching at an International School, I will focus on teaching the age range I prefer. I will be able to do my part in helping them live better lives. I think this makes more sense than to add to a population that is ripe for depopulation by corrupt outside forces.

The benefit of being a teacher is that you do get to help children and give them a better chance at success in life. However, you also earn money instead of spending it. Everyday after work you get to relax and take care of yourself (exercise, further education, etc).. At this point in my life, I don't know that I'd survive the huge weight of responsibility that raising children (correctly) involves...
