Cassandra Willyard doubts she will ever want kids. Christie Aschwanden reassures her that's ok:

The question of baby or no baby touches on one of the most fundamental decisions we face as adults—how will we focus our attention? … I love my husband, and I don’t long for interlopers in our marriage. I like that lingering in bed together in the early sunshine and sharing leisurely breakfasts while discussing the morning newspaper are not special occasions for us, but regular pleasures that don’t require any pre-planning. 

Cameron Walker speaks from the flipside.
