Hello - I am new to the forum and am curious about experiences on how to deal with overly pushy and nosy friends and family (and, let's face it, strangers too). I am 35 year old, and my husband and I are living a childfree life (by choice). The rapid fire of questions about children and biological clocks has come on so strong in the last few years that I'm not sure how much more I can handle. The thought has recently crossed my mind to maybe start telling people I am flat out unable to have children (which is a total lie). Part of me hopes this will embarrass them for asking personal questions, and part of me wonders if it will just shut down the conversation faster than my usual reply of "oh I don't know if we're ready" or "we've still got time"or "yep you're right we should get on that". Sigh. I also feel like lying about infertility is really bad karma and disrespectful to those that are actually unable to conceive. What do you ladies think?! The few times I have mentioned to people that I've chosen to be childfree I feel like I've been attacked with even more questions. It's exhausting and the social pressure is just so overbearing, I don't know what to do!
