I don't know, I don't judge people based on whether they want children or not and am generally non-judgemental. I don't want children of my own.

No Both people work now and they aren't wanting to take time off to raise a family it's their choice.
If they are business people they sure don't have time.
Priorities are different than they used to be.
It's their time and money.

I don't think so, at last in the western world. Given the overpopulation of the world and the crises facing us (global warming etc.) I think they are heroes!! Should have a licence to have kids now...

I don't. You never know why it is that someone does not have children so I'd never judge at all.

I think women bear the brunt of the decision--which is unfair on many levels. After all, I wanted (and had) my children--didn't ask anyone's permission. The choice lies with the couple--no one else.
