Default To how many men would it be dealbreaker...

From men's perspective on: If you know that the woman you plan to either live with or get married to NEVER wanted kids ever. Couple years went by and she still keeps her same views on never having kids. I seen how many women stated on several threads somewhere else that it would be deal-breaker to them if man never wanted kids. How about vice-versa?

It's my current position with boyfriend I'll get married to. I'm the one that never wants any. He has agree to adopt one later one though there was this occasion, he did stated it's not quite the same as having your own kid. But I see no difference, it will still be his kid anyways.

I know that I am a woman and not allowed to post, but I am such a rebel I will anyway. I don't want kids and a guy who did would be an instant dealbreaker for me.

I would be absolutely thrilled to be with a woman like this. I might even pay a finder's fee...

Yeah I'm pretty certain I never want kids as well. So that would be perfect.

I'm surprised to see men who feel this way. In my experience EVERYONE seems to want kids. Drives me crazy

I think that it would be irresponsible and disrespectful to stay in a relationship when you know you don't want kids and your SO does. If you (whoever that might be) tell him in the beginning that you don't want kids, then that's his problem for staying and hoping to change you.

And, just so you know, if you plan on marrying the guy and he adopts a kid - guess who the mommy is.

I don't know if that was directed at me, but my SO absolutely doesn't want kids or I wouldn't have married him
