I am not child-free, for starters. I have four kids and am in my thirties. Very happy with the kids that my husband and I chose to have. My brother is married and has not had any kids with his wife, although I always assumed he would. He has informed me that his wife does not want kids and is seeking to get her tubes tied. She does not want to adopt and she says that she is firm on her decision. He wants kids. He’s asking me for advice and in general, he’s always taken what I’ve said pretty seriously.
I want to come at this from a neutral place, but obviously can’t do that in my current position because I have kids and didn’t regret that decision. Can someone tell me what advice you would give from a child-free standpoint? From my standpoint, I don’t want him to regret not having kids, but maybe I am seeing this wrong.
