Kids are not really for me either, although I am not a particularly big fan of marriage as well.  I prefer to live like George Clooney, instead of Brad Pitt....aside form the massive amounts of money and such, of course.

The $290k number is very low for families who send their kids to private schools and then foot the bill for private colleges.  It also fails to take into account the time value of that money.  When you consider the two kid family paying for private schools all the way through and take an average market rate of return into account, it is pretty clear that the couple could retire at the age their kids would graduate college if they had simply not had them.  Then again, how many childless folks out there actually invest all that saved money as opposed to consuming it?  Personally, I will take my million dollar hit and move on with my life.  I am pretty sure that the $1M will buy me someone to change my Depends.  Well, hopefully... :-\

If you decide you must spawn, when you take your bundle of joy out into publci, do whatever it takes to keep it quiet

the rest of us really dont want to hear how loud the little noise monster can get.
