In what way would having kids tie you down?
My boyfriend of a few months has just told me he is adamant he doesn’t want any kids, he says they tie you down, what does he mean by that?
He means that once you have children they should automatically become your number one priority. Your own needs must always come after the needs of a child. In some respects your own life is put on hold when you have children. You have to prioritise and invest both time and money in their favour. If you are ready to do this it can be extremely fulfilling. If you are not ready, it can be the most restrictive thing you could ever imagine.
