who will look after you when you’re old? living a child free life
But don\'t be sad for me.
I don\'t think there is much.
Australian women will never have children, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Couples who do not have children are expected to be the fastest growing family type, and by 2031 they will exceed the number of families with children ,(
Due to the increase in children-free families and the aging of our population. )
Despite the changing environment of Australian families, social pressure has made parenting a path.
Soon after we got married, the problem began.
Relatives and friends (
When do we have a baby?
We have little chance to think about it.
After expressing my indecision, people often make such statements: \"Who will take care of you when you are old\" or \"Don\'t you like children\", implying
I agreed for a while.
I went on and ticked all the boxes that I thought would be ready for my mother.
I found a job with paid maternity leave to have my sister keep her baby clothes and wait for the feeling to come. It never did. With my mid-
In their thirties it\'s like a time bomb, and talking to my partner about \"when do we start trying\" can cause anxiety, not excitement.
Instead, I have always dreamed of a life of creation, flexibility, and travel.
So we decided to give up the conversation until one of us had \"trouble \".
If not, that\'s fine.
People have no children for various reasons.
Some people make choices.
Some can\'t get pregnant.
Some people do not have a partner and will not embark on the journey alone.
Some people have partners who don\'t want children.
Our reasons are diverse and equally valid.
No assumptions can be made about the child\'s overall freedom.
Due to different reasons, there are also differences between different cultures.
Census statistics show that among Australian residents born overseas, women from the United States, the Philippines and Malaysia have a higher proportion of children.
Women born in Greece, Croatia and Italy have a lower proportion of children.
Compared with women without children, the proportion of indigenous women without children is lower
Dr. Brown Wen Haman, a senior lecturer at Edith Cowen University, studied contemporary issues affecting families, parenting, and recently studied free children.
\"In the past, people could not say that they did not want children, which was not accepted by society.
\"I think women in particular are trying to make themselves have everything, but they don\'t have to choose everything,\" she said . \".
Haman found in the initial survey that people voluntarily did not have children for multiple reasons.
The most common reason among participants who have no children voluntarily is;
They may have children in the future. 29. 6 per cent);
They are not mothers/fathers (27. 6 per cent);
They think the children will ruin their way of life. 16 per cent).
Haman noted in her discussion that \"women and mothers are so inextricably intertwined that society is particularly negative about women without children.
Those who voluntarily have no children publicly condemn their choices and do not stop defending their choices.
\"So far, Haman has collected the stories of more than 500 people without children, and she is now entering the second stage of her research, paying free attention to the well-being of children, and having no children as the choice, and those who have no children.
To answer this age
The old question \"Will I regret the decision not to have children when I grow up\", the statistics are vague and there is very little academic literature in Australia.
Early discovery of Haman (
Full analysis will be released later this year)
It is shown that some groups of women, especially those over the age of 50, who do not have partners, have reported more regrettable experiences.
The biggest study to answer this question was conducted in Norway in 2012 by Thomas Hansen, Britt slagswald and tobiyoen mu.
The research team from the Norwegian Institute of Social Studies studied data from more than 5,000 participants aged between 40 and 80 years and examined the impact of a range of factors, including no children, on elderly health.
They conclude that there is no difference in happiness between parents and people without children.
The conclusion of the discussion is that \"the results of the review and the results of the submission do not support the ancient myth that children make people happier or without children can endanger their later life.
Although infertility people may go through a stage of discovering the emptiness and infullness of life, few people think that involuntary childlessness can cause a sense of continuous loss.
\"The possibility of impending regret for us is not just a good reason to have a baby.
There is no guarantee of getting old.
There is no reason for me to think that my family and friends will abandon me.
\"We need to take into account that future generations don\'t always take care of us.
\"It is up to all of us to make sure that we can count on each other, regardless of whether the children are free,\" Haman said . \".
Something tells me that I will be fine.

Why should we accept the idea of \"good enough\" parenting?
