It's a choice whether you want kids or not. What's an ideal lifestyle decision for one may not be the same for someone else. Frankly I don't want kids , but can't alter the fact i do.

If my lineage is any indication, I would truly be a very awful father. At some point you gotta cut it off.

Yep. I'm a total c*nt in real life so wouldn't want to project that attitude onto a kid

I know I'm not absolutely wrong. That's why I replied. In any case, Jans only said it's "likely" to extend your life. Certainly not definite. And it's not just being taken care of - it's also having a family around who connects you to the world in ways that you wouldn't be otherwise. You don't seem to want to believe it, but there are many cases of people treating their kids well, resulting in the kids truly loving their parents and helping give them happy long lives.
