For an article for the Good Men Project, Cox decided to look into why other men remain childless by choice. He found that while women face more stigma, both genders give the same reasons for not having kids. The top four reasons, which are the same among men and women, are the following:
- "I love our life, our relationship, as it is, and having a child won't enhance it."
- "I do not want to take on the responsibility of raising a child."
- "I have no desire to have a child, no maternal or paternal instinct."
- "I want to accomplish things in life that would be difficult if I were a parent."
Do you know any men who don't want to have kids?
