If someone doesn’t want kids but still has them due to the pressure from their partner or society, then obviously the kids are going to be a cause for resentment and may substract from marital happiness. If the couple has a poor relationship and wants to keep the marriage going then kids could well be a binding factor…but every person needs emotional and physical intimacy so how long can such a marriage last?
At times a couple might go along with a sham marriage, sticking together for the “sake of the kids” and this does happen in India. And the marriage could well break apart if the kids leave.

The survey does not say whether the couples would actually prefer having children.
If they were truly unhappy they would regret having the kids wouldn’t they?
I think that if a marriage is strong, it should be able to survive.
Happiness isn’t of one type There is a recent survey (carried out in America and Europe) which says that married couples are happy (the word they used was “blissfully” happy) once their children have fled the nest.
A person looking to be married or looking to be in a committed relationship is looking for love and companionship and is ready to give it as well.In fact a random survey of about 2,000 cases filed in the last one year before the Bandra family court (one of two in Mumbai) last year revealed that more than 10 percent of divorce cases were from the 40-50 age group.So what I am trying to say is that children cannot really help save a marraige…So is there anything at all that helps a marriage to be successful? It says more than an economic analysis of a marraige it is… The enjoyment of joint activities or the absence of loneliness and the emotional support that fosters self-esteem and mastery are all important non-instrumental aspects contributing to the individual well-being of married people…In my opinion two rational people who are in love and do things together because they have some shared interests and a shared value system which tells them that marriage (or cohabitation) is not to be taken lightly can be happy. In India, because of the vast network of social connections, the support of relatives and close family ties, marriages can at times survive without the emotional intimacy that marriage should provide.So if they don’t regret having children it means they are quite happy the way they are.They are giving up on some “fun” in exchange for some long term fulfillment and sure they feel pangs of longing but that’s human. In any case I don’t think “having fun” all the time and having the freedom to do whatever one wants at any given moment necessarily means being “happy.” If a couple doesn’t want children in the first place then its a different matter.Inability to have children could affect a marriage Couples who want kids badly could feel incomplete as a family/couple without them, and this feeling of inadequacy could well drive a wedge between them particularly if one blames the other…but another couple who doesn’t want kids and chooses stressful event tearing them apart.So its not children per se which is affecting the marriage, but stress and the blame game.Sasi (318222) describes herself as Warm hearted, Humorous and Outspoken.Her outlook on life is Ambitious, Optimistic and Independent and her goals are Career, Family and Wealth.
