Description
Fall in love. Get married. Have children. For most couples, marriage and children go hand in hand. And yet, the number of people choosing childlessness is on the rise. These are the childless by choice,people who have actively decided not to have children,rather than the childless by circumstance. In Two Is Enough, Laura S. Scott explores the assumptions surrounding childrearing, and explores the reasons many people are choosing to forgo this experience. Scott, founder of the Childless by Choice Project, examines the personal stories of people who have faced this decision and explores the growing trend of childlessness. Scott's expert knowledge and analysis offer a picture of the childless by choice,who they are, why they've chosen to remain childless, and how they've had these conversations with loved ones. Honest and unapologetic, Two Is Enough recognizes the challenges of being childless in today's society and offers suggestions on how that same society can change to make room for the childless and the childfree.
