    I’m only responsible for my life, no one else’s. If times get tough, or things don’t work out, it only affects me, no one else.

    Freedom. Quiet. Solidarity. If I’m broke, I only have to worry about how I’m going to feed myself and my pets, not a kid who’s probably the reason I’m broke. Finally, will not be weighed down with intense regret.

      @rumskittles – very great reasons, especially the one about being broke!

      @taylorashleyd – I love naps!!!!

      @mrtydh – definitely a responsible reason!

      @ravenclaw – freedom is probably one of the most amazing aspects!

    These are not in any particular order

    1) Financial freedom. Though my husband and I have good incomes, we’re able to put more away for a rainy day.
    2) Sleep. I get 8 hours a night.
    3) Travel. Usually whenever we want to. Last minute weekend getaways? Doable. Lengthy business trips? Generally not a problem.
    4) Sex. Whenever we want to. More passionate. More spontaneous. More creative. And I think it’s better because I’m infertile (think about it–I don’t have to worry about any “oopsies”).
    5) Other people’s kids. I love being the “cool aunt”. I like babysitting my friends’ kids when my friends need a night out. I like other peoples’ children–especially when I can give them back!
    6) Freedom to pursue our passions. My husband and I both have day jobs. But his passion is photography and mine is music. He does freelance photography on the side and I do the occasional session work (I play bass).
