I love your article. We don't need to get married or have kids to kick ass. I tell my bestie this all the time. She always asks, "when are you guys having kids?"
However, my husband does not pressure me and I told him that I am open to having kids but don't see myself as a breeder. I know that term seems horrible but some of my friends have 3-4 kids with different men and I just don't see that as a worthwhile life.
My friends think I'm crazy but I'm like you in that I don't need to procreate to be happy. When I met my hubby, it was after I gave up on all that. If he passes away or leaves or something, I will most likely be alone. I think I'm a fun enough person on my own. My sister is not married so I feel I would move closer to her and we are both proud Aunties like you. Thanks for always keeping it real and being a wonderful role model. 🌷
