I used to have this sense of feeling left out — spending the majority of my adult life unmarried and without children of my own. But I’ve seen most of the women I know struggle with bad marriages, relationships they can’t get out of, or children who are expensive and temperamental to raise (and harder to with a partner working against them out of spite). I know I would be miserable if I did something like having a kid, especially at my age and stage in life. It would go against my nature. Nothing against people who want to have them. If that is your desire, great. But it isn’t mine.
