A significant proportion of the global population will never be parents.The trend is for people to have fewer children, later in life and for many not to have children at all. In the past, almost all couples who could do so had children, but today, more than ten per cent choose not to. Child-Free Zone contains the experiences and opinions of over 80 child-free people aged between 22 and 60. It is a practical, readable and often amusing discussion of the decision to remain child-free. In it we discuss the issues involved in choosing not to become a parent, the reasons for and benefits of staying child-free, what child-free people do with their lives and what problems they face. We hope that as a result of this book, more people like ourselves will look forward to a wonderful child-free future.
