I am 47 years old, married, and I have no children (that I know of!). I’m not against children at all (I married ‘late’, and it just hasn’t happened for us), but I feel that society is certainly more accepting of couples if they DO have children. Most of my friends are either single, or married with children and not generally available to do things socially without a huge kerfuffle about child caring arrangements.
As I’m currently not working (between contracts, not unemployable!), I seem to be caught in this no-person’s land between the retirees, and the ‘young mum’s with bubs’, which is quite alienating during the day when the rest of the world seems to be working as all of my friends are.
For some time now I’ve thought about starting a social group, which could include walks, dinners out, coffee or concerts, for people who do not have children. And as I don’t have current access to a work bulletin board, I thought I’d start here to see what interest there is in such a venture.
If you’re interested, please get in touch. Also please let me know if you have any ideas about how to promote such a venture.
Thanks, I hope to hear from you soon, Virginia.
