and did your work status influence that decision? How so? If not, what were the factors that went into your decision to start a family at the age or time of life that you started one?

When we adopted a stray kitty!

Adopted another one and other "throw aways".

Married for 10 years and childfree by choice. Both of us made a conscious decision to refrain from procreation. Parenting is a life long, irreversible decision...one that we respect (for others) but choose not participate.

We enjoy being the cool aunt and uncle. My SILs also enjoy dropping their daughters at our house when they need a break! And we love spending time with our nieces.
