    Am I being selfish? Am I wrong not to want children?

    hi all,

    My wife wants to have children, I told her early in our relationship that I didn't want children. I don't want children as I think it would be unfair on any child I bring into the world, because in my family, a few of my family members have passed away from brain tumors. We have been told that this is hereditary and could be passed down.she knows the reasons for me not wanting to have children.

    Dear Brother, I won't say that you are selfish but your thought is not right. Think in this way, incase your family not having any health problem like waht you are mention you are having child but it may passaway for any other reason. It doesnt mean you need life time gaurente for your child to come to this earth. Think positive. Dream like this you don't have any health problem as well as your wife so you will have healthy childres and lead your full of hapiness . All the best. Regards and Prayers

    Hi Mr.Anand,

    I agree with Vijayarani..Try to think from your wife's point of view also. i would say go to a specialist, give your case history and check with doctor whether you can have a child or not. Everything will be alright soon brother.

    Wish you all the very best.

    Best Regards,
