It is increasingly common to hear women saying that they don't want to have kids. Celebs like Joey Muthengi and rapper, Maandy have both gone on the record saying they don't want children.

What is the reason for this ever-increasing phenomenon? As Mpasho has a large, smart audience full of wajuaji, we decided to put them to the test.

The answers varied with some opining that the economy wasn't conducive to raising a young one.

While others felt that men were to blame as they couldn't be trusted (not rich enough) to take care of the children.

Others stated simply that society is changing and that women shouldn't be consigned to a way of life that their mothers and grandmothers might have lived.

_latifah_kahn_ Stress free. Solid retirement plan. You get to explore your own interests. Post parturm health issues. The school fees for kindergarten in private schools is expensive. Health care is more expensive. The threat of deadbeat fathers. E.t.c. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
