Many 21st century career women say "we don't want children".Do you agree?

After coming back from a business trip,she gets into a chauffeured car,past midnight,to go home.She's not dependent on anyone to pick her up or drop her to the airport.Neither is she wary of travelling by herself at night. What is this if not a statement proclaiming her independence. Generalise in front of her about every woman wanting to be a mother and prompt comes the reply"Oh,no",she coolly shakes her head denying any such desire within her.It's not defiance,merely a statement,"I don't want to have children".It's not that she's allergic to them,"I love kids.They are theraupatic to life. But they don't have to be mine. We are comfortable,complete and content." How much do you agree with this woman's statement?Is it good in the long run?

Your hypothetical woman's desires may change as she gets older. There again, they may not. Everyone is wired differently (it's what makes life interesting) and if she feels no desire to have children then who are we to argue with her?

Yes, if she has no desire who are we to argue...every person abides by his/her own thinking.

No I don't think it is a good statement. A woman is not complete if she doesn't experience motherhood, pregnancy or giving birth. Children to me is important and I believe having you own makes a family complete as well. This woman would and up alone and lonely in the long run. Her independence in her self wouldn't last a lifetime and soon she'll need someone to make her happy like her own kids perhaps.

I don't think we can really agree or disagree with this statement. It is each individuals choice. Some women have no desire to be a mom and it is not always about independence. I have known women in my life who have opted to find fulfillment in other things but were very needed of having other people in their life and surrounding them at all times.... not very independent at all.

I have absolutely no desire to have children. I think it's down to individuals choices. you don't need children to have a complete and happy life.
