Men, Share With Me The Moment You Knew You Didn't Want To Be A Parent

There are a slew of reasons why people today don't want to follow typical traditions — like getting married or having children.

Being a 30-year-old woman myself, I often hear conversations of women deciding to not have children for their own reasons but I don't typically hear the men's perspective on this.

So I'm asking the men of the BuzzFeed Community who don't want children how they came to this decision and why.

Maybe you want the freedom to travel wherever and whenever you want.

Perhaps you feel that you're not in a financially stable position to raise a child in this economy.

Or maybe your spouse cannot get pregnant so you both made a conscious decision to not have children.
