When a couple has children it is usually an extremely significant event in their lives. The raising of children changes many aspects of the couples life. One of the aspects that can be negatively impacted on is the friendships with couples that do not have children. There are important things you should never say to a couple that doesn’t have children.
I Guess You Have A Pet
Pets can be a large part of a couples life. However they are never a substitute for having a child. You should never talk to a childless couple in a manner that sounds like it is a consolation prize for not having children.
When Do You Intend On Having Children?
Couples that have the blessing of children often want their friends to share in their wonderful experiences. However, asking other couples about when they plan on having children in public situations is definitely a no-no. There are a variety of reasons why couples don’t have children. Sometimes they decide having children isn’t right for them. There could be medical problems such as infertility that the couple is facing. If you want to discuss issues concerning why a couple isn’t having children you should very carefully and very discreetly bring it up only in private conversations.
I Guess You Get A Lot More Sleep Than I Do?
Couples with children are very often up during the night dealing with their children’s issues. But the opposite is also untrue. Couples generally do not decide to not have children because they want to sleep more at night. Comments can sound like the couple is acting in a shallow or selfish manner.
We Always Wanted To Have A Family
This expression can be misinterpreted. Childless couples, when they hear this expression, may believe you’re saying a couple who don’t have children are not a family. There are many types of families. Significant others, parents, brothers and sisters, cousins, all constitute family members.
