Childless By Choice!


"Researchers at the University of Chicago interviewed 2,832 Americans age 18 and older from February to May of 1998. They found that households composed of married couples with children dropped to just 26 percent in 1998 from 45 percent in the early 1970s. They said their findings in the General Social Survey are another sign that the face of the American family has changed. They also noted that Americans are becoming more accepting of those changes."
