Why do people look at you cross eyed when you say you "don't want kids"? Never understood that.
I realise that some people feel as if they're obliged to get married and have children because that is what is drummed into them from birth.
However, there seem to be a lot of people out there who believe that EVERYONE should get married and EVERYONE should have children. I'm pretty sure that this "one size fits all" mentality is the root of most of the problems and general discontent we see in society today.
Also, why is it considered selfish to not want children? Surely it is more selfish to desire an extension of yourself in the form of a child.
