  • I would say if you have children you won't live longer.

    It just seems longer.
  • Laocoon: and alone


    And with alot of cats
  • I'm lying in bed with a 14 month that has a cold and a wife that has been a coont for the last month (at least)...

    trust me youngsters... don't do it.
  • Better alone, without children, and with cats, than with people who make you want to put a bullet in your brain every day.

    /forever alone, like a boss
  • This is a study of people who wanted and failed to have children, not those of us that are blissfully saving lots of money to spend on ourselves.
  • that's what you get for fighting biology and settled custom. there'll always be outliers but please don't ask society for more than tolerance if you go against natural, God-fearing male and female roles. nature assigned you a place at birth--know it and be happy.
  • My ex is childless.
    This seems to be a multiple blessing (for me).
  • That's because we're out bar-hopping, parasailing, hiking the Rockies, and shagging like bunnies. And the earlier death is TOTALLY WORTH IT.

    Right.on.the.money.

    /same goes for marriage.
  • Seriously?

    They needed a study?

    Do ya think that women that have/need IVF might just might have something wrong with them genetically or physically that causes health problems?
  • I am in my fifties, and my wife and I have no children. We are very happy with our decision.
  • Involuntary childlessness.

    My vasectomy and I will live forever, man.
  • RTFA. A statistically tiny difference in death rates was found between people who successfully had a kid through in vitro fertilization and those who tried to have one and failed. Nobody has any evidence that having kids leads to living longer among the genpop.

    /No kids, and never will have
    //No debt, and retirement well funded.
  • In other news, infertility linked to many life shortening disorders.
  • bronyaur1: I am in my fifties, and my wife and I have no children. We are very happy with our decision.


    I am in my thirties, and my wife and I have two children. We are very happy with our decision.

    Ah, but you will never know the joys of spending a half-million dollars for the ability to say that there's a bit of protein that somewhat resembles yours running around somewhere.

    You have veins bursting in parents' brains right now.

    I swear people with kids HATE those of us without kids. It's all snide remarks and "who will take care of you when you're older?" Sometime I get the feeling that I've personally offended these people, just because I haven't had to endure years of involuntary sleep deprivation, being puked on, spending all my money on clothes that won't fit in a couple months, tripping over toys, having to run out of businesses the second their little minds decide they need more attention, etc...
  • My buddy, his wife, their 3 year old and 22 month old are visiting for the weekend. This has strengthened my resolve to never have children, even though my mother is fearful she will die without grandchildren.
    /the sound of a child crying is the most wretched sound on the planet
  • I am an infertile woman who always wanted children. I skipped IVF and adopted two. Now I have my two, five stepchildren, two grandchildren, and a temporary exchange student.

    I cannot for the life of me figure out whether this tiny study has any implications for me at all. Probably not, because they have no idea what caused the small difference in the groups.
  • Girion47: I swear people with kids HATE those of us without kids.


    I think the logic is "I suffered, WHY DON'T YOU?"

    Girion47: "who will take care of you when you're older?"


    An improbably buxom and grateful nurse/stripper that I'm putting through college.

    I am glad that other people are having kids. I love kids. The best part of other people's kids is that when it's time to wipe their ass, or dispense discipline, or suffer through a tantrum, you simply give them back to their biological parent.
  • FTA: "Association doesn't necessarily imply causation..."

    Which one of you wrote that article now?
