DINK= Double Incomes and No Kids, that means a couple married with double incomes but no kids, it doesn't mean that they are infertile to have their own, they just avoid to give birth to babies, because they think babies to them is a difficulty, they have to save money for his or her education, food, in China maybe parents also have to have prepared money for children's work after their college graduation, also, their marriage, especially boys. Besides,some others think that giving birth to babies is painful. I know quite some young people choose to be DINK after they marry, and they really save a bit of money. What about you? Will you be a DINK after you marry?

Whilst a life of marriage and both having good careers would make lots of money it might not be awfully happy. I would in that sort of life be in a full time job so would the husband would have the same. We would probably have a lack of time for much traveling overseas. I know there is much pain in childbirth but having a baby is joyful. Seeing him or her grow up is delightful. I wouldn't have wanted to be a DINK.

I gave birth to my baby when neither me nor my husband was working.Our baby brought luck for us and we both started earning afterwords.Now we are very happy and satisfied as a family.We do not want any other child because we want to provide my son the best of everything and our incomes are just sufficient to bear the expenses of one child.We do not want to cut down on his expenditure.

Hi, friend, I think you are wise to have only one child because the recession is hitting the whole world, but will the only child be lonely in the future? Sorry it's just my suggestion, thank you for your contribution. I wish your family be happy for ever!
