Whether they call themselves “childless,” “childfree,” “childless-by-choice” or even just “still on the fence,” a significant number of New York women in their 30s and 40s are taking a pass on motherhood.

What do you think WNKsters?

Does having a career in the big city mean you can’t have kids? Why are NYC women opting for childfreedom?

    I really never thought not having any kids was a big deal or taboo until I became an adult and people around me were so robotic and narrow-minded that they thought I would live life like they did. I feel that a lot of people live life by checking off things on their imaginary life milestone To Do List: get driver license at 16 and have big sweet 16 b-day party, lose virginity by 17, graduate HS by 18, graduate college w/honors at 22, have career by 24, get married at 26, have 2 kids by 30, have large dream home with large closet filled with designer items by 32 with 2 cars, dogs, and a Facebook profile with 30K friends LOL. Life isn’t predicable for everyone and we have choices. If a person doesn’t want to have kids – that’s all it means – s/he wants to be childfree. There shouldn’t be a judgement call or alienation. I don’t care if it’s in NYC or out west.
