This is what I am going to ask the next time someone sighs and shakes their head after learning that T$ and I do not have children. If they answer no to my question, I will sigh and shake my head as if their life is surely empty and sad.

This question and subsequent reaction might seem like a disconnect but it's just another example of someone pushing their preference and acting as though any response different from their own is somehow less than.

And, while we have chosen a child-free path, others have not so please be considerate for their sake.
