Laura’s Recent Updates

“Being childfree does not mean we don't like children; it means we don't care to have children of our own. We just want people to accept that: It's okay to be different, and not everyone has to have kids to be fulfilled. I do know some people get so much joy out of their kids. I see it in my friends who have kids. And I don't envy that, because I feel like I have so much joy in my own life. I appreciate theirs, and more power to them, but we have our own. This is our way of having joy.”

“Parenthood is a choice, not an obligation. We are not against the parenting decision; we respect parents, and so we want to be respected.”
Laura S. Scott, Two Is Enough: A Couple's Guide to Living Childless by Choice

“Laura felt we needed to redefine what it means to be selfish, and quoted Oscar Wilde: 'Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.”
