Is the Expectancy to Have Children After Marriage Outdated?

Q. If you get married, do you think that having children is an expected thing?

[Yes] 40%
[No] 59%

Various Reasons

-People who think that you should have children because you got married

"If you don't have a reason for not being able to have children, then you should have them," (33, Clothing retail)

"Because as a human, I think that is an obvious thing to leave behind descendants," (26, Apparel Company)

-Just because you got married, that doesn't mean that you have to give birth to children

"I think it's good to have them, but if either side doesn't want children I think that's fine," (30, Food service industry)

"In this generation, there are more people who don't have children, and there are couples who want children but give up because of financial problems and because of their situation, so I don't think you can say that having children is a given after marriage," (22, Retail work)

There are married couples who don't have children and are still happy

You are you and I am me.
Children are things to be made forcefully or for the sake of decency.

There are people who can't have kids, there are people who don't need kids, there are people who want kids, I think it's fine for people to have their own preferences (^_^)
There is no need to think of people who don't have kids as narrow minded, and I don't think it's necessary to be boastful if you do have them (^_^)

It's not marriage= children (You have to have them)

I want to get married but it would be unpleasant to be constantly have people on my back about children

Previously, I asked a male acquaintance of mine what he thought of women who don't want children. He replied "There is no meaning in them getting married." The world view is harsh on women who don't want kids

I don't have children but I think it's easy outside of old age.
If I could have them I would want them but I'm enjoying myself as it is (*^^*)

Thinking that you have to have kids once you get married is an old way of thinking. We're not in the generation where male children become your successor.
It's better for couples to decide what to do for themselves.
It's not a thing for other people to complain about.

There are lots of people who think it's expected to have children after marriage so people who choose not to have them have it tough.
They have to be constantly told "No kids yet?"

There are women with children who make fun of women without children. It's so depressing

I want people to notice that even though women with lots of children are not particularly admirable, the thought that "Since we have a low birth rate women who have lots of kids are excellent~" breeds prejudice and discrimination against women without children.

There are various reason that people don't have children
The superior attitude of people who have kids and the insensible thinking patterns of men are really unpleasant

Lately, there have been lots of topics like this huh.
I don't think that people absolutely should have children.
Married couples have various ways of thinking
I think it's wrong to criticize people who say they won't have them

People with children fighting people without, people without children fighting people with, people who can't get pregnant not being treated as humans, let's stop all of this.
