When you seriously want to start a family, despite having gone through all the possible fertility treatments, the inability to bear a child can be a devastating blow. This can trigger a range of emotional feelings within yourself. The emotions can range from anxiousness, guilty, anger and may even lead to depression. However, there are a number of people who lead a happy life without children. There are also some people who live without children by choice. These couples cannot be categorized under the childless couples as they have chosen to live without children.
Though the decision to live without children is never an easy one, yet if you have made the choice, then couples without children can live a life of contentment and fulfillment. If we look at the bright side, then couples without children are better off than those with children. It gives you a better opportunity to get to know your spouse more intimately and draws each other more close than anyone else as you don’t have to divert your attention and time for children. As such there is nothing unethical to choose to live a childless life positively. So do not let anyone make you feel guilty of being childless.
Even if you fail biologically to give birth to a child there are a number of things that can be done. For instance, you can adopt a child or help a needy child or someone who needs special attention. But this should be strictly your and your partner’s decision. Do not let anyone influence you in taking such steps. Even if you don’t want to adopt a child, there are a number of things you can do to contribute towards the welfare of the society. A childless couple is more open to a wide variety of choices. They can sponsor a charity, a school or a home for the benefit of the homeless children. This way a childless couple can derive pleasure.
Living a life without children benefits you with more personal freedom. You have more time to spend on your own interests, and ample time to nurture your emotional relationship. You can enjoy ample amount of time with your spouse reliving those days again. All that you have to do is to maintain a balance and forget all about infertility. Though it might not be possible to remove the memory once and for all, however, you can do a great deal to suppress the mixed emotions that might recur time and again. Learn to accept the fact as this will help you in acknowledging it.
