Apparently there’s a belief shared by some that if you and your husband/wife don’t have any children together your marriage is not a real marriage. Seems people who hold this belief think that children prove a husband and wife are in love with each other and if a couple have no children they are not really in love and their marriage is not a real marriage as compared to marriages where the husband and wife have children together. How people come to these conclusions is anybody’s guess. My husband and I don’t have any children together. I did bring a child into the marriage but decided even before meeting my husband that I did not want another child. I did not think at any point in our marriage while we struggled to make ends meet and struggled with out relationship that bringing a child into the picture would be good for anyone, especially the child. Does the fact that we have no children together mean our commitment to each other and to the marriage is less strong than that of the married couples we know? Does it mean we love each other less than couples with children love each other? I don’t think having children or not having children proves anything about a husband and wife’s love for each other and their commitment to each other.
