Marie Claire Magazine Challenges Parenthood Myths
A few months a go I spent an hour talking to Abigail Pesta, an editor with Marie Claire Magazine about the things I learned in the course of researching and writing Two Is Enough: A Couple’s Guide to Living Childless by Choice.
The result is a article titled “To Breed or Not to Breed” in the current October issue of Marie Claire Magazine, where we challenge some of the common myths about parenthood.
It is a fun and lighthearted look at the myths that often impact our decision making. Myths like:
• All women have the maternal instinct.
• A baby with strengthen the marriage.
• You’ll regret not having kids.
See page 95 in October’s issue or click on the link above to see how I respond to these. How would you respond?
