This is a group for child free couples in their 30's & 40's who are currently child free by choice and are looking to find other child free couples to hang out with, go to dinner, have a few drinks, and some laughs, check out a movie, or maybe see a local concert. We're starting this group because we are finding that we're the minority-not having kids, by choice, in our circle of family and friends and would love to meet other like-minded couples. We certainly don't dislike children (we are thrilled about our new nephew) but we have decided parenthood is not for us. This group is not about bashing parents and children. This group is open to couples who currently have chosen not to parent. Still on the fence about having kids? We totally understand that! Join us! An open-minded discussion to have or not have kids is a welcome topic of conversation. (Please note: this is not the right group for step-parents or empty nesters. Please join only if you are child free by choice. Thank you.)
