Agree to No Arguing but Not Having Kids can be a Good Thing

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: What about you

Submitted by Jaime (United States), Dec 30, 2019 at 05:37

I am coming back to this site after a while. I agree with you that arguing / debating on this site is not entirely in keeping with it's original intent. This person's comments take up valuable space. I do however think that not having kids or a husband is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as you're not Muslim of course. Since this is a dating / marriage website, most women here are, or at least were, looking for a husband / kids, that lifestyle. But I also think that not having kids is a smart life choice. Not having kids is a luxury. I would never want the stress and headache of having kids. I see my friends and they are just frazzled all the time. They look really old for their age after having kids and they have gained a lot of weight. And they are constantly spending every dime towards their kids and not themselves. I am also not married quite honestly don't see the appeal. I love my freedom. So, I agree with her on these aspects. But, ultimately this is a site for giving advice, and I think the bickering should end.
