Despite my mother's repeated arguments with me over it, and the disappointed looks she gives me, all my parents are getting are grand-doggies. That was my decision before I met my husband, and nothing is likely to change.

This is A LOT of the people I know.  I'm in my mid-20s.  While there are a few people who have kids, a lot of them decided to have dogs first.  And some people have just had the dogs and have forgotten about the kids.  And then there's me and a couple other people I know, who decided to get cats instead of dogs.  So here I am, a mid-20s cat lady with 4 cats and a husband, and we have no plans to have children anytime soon.

/who needs kids, I was woken up at 4am by a cat who wanted me to watch him take a dump
//and then a couple hours later to feed the bastards

The federal data behind the report show that over the past seven years, the number of live births per 1,000 women between ages 15 and 29 in America has plunged 9 percent.

A normal article would be pleased about the reduction in teen pregnancy.

Admiral_Ritt: Call it, Sterilization via Puppy Dog.

Ladies, It's a real turn off for you to be a keeper of a Dog.   A cat not so much.
It makes some of us think you have high emotional nurturing needs.
and for the larger dogs,  we think you are  F**ing them.

"it's okay to love your pets as long as you don't love your pets."

Seriously, your comments say more about your skewed view of women in general than they do about anything else.  You sound fat.  And lonely.

Yes, but you are assuming it has gotten worse.

I just assume it's gotten different

LordZorch: Logical outcome of cheap, reliable, birth control is that people that don't want kids won't have them.

Also, keep you smelly little disease & snot factories to yourself - the world is not your babysitter...

Watch that number drop A LOT more when a non surgical/non condom form of birth control is invented for men. I'd bet that a healthy percentage of children born both inside and out of marriage is due to females giving the impression they're on birth control and either legitimately forgetting/messing up or deliberately deceiving the male. The line for a male birth control pill/shot is gonna be miles long.

As long as they don't refer to their dogs as their babies, that's fine by me.

My roomate always manages to date guys that want to have a kid a month after they start dating eventhough she pretty much said she never wants to have kids after raising her brothers. The last nutbar already had a 6 month old and his friends were talking about her and him having another. The one thing he had going for him is he had a good job unlike the others. When she asked what I thought about it I told her to "Eject Mavrick!!!"

The real problem isn't so much that they are getting "dogs" instead of children, but that so may of them (that I've seen) are getting these baby-sized yip dogs instead of full sized dogs like collies or shepherds. It's as if they actually want babies, but without all the maintenance.

It has nothing to do with the economic situation of many women and couples being untenable for raising a child.
