Is having children only an option for the rich now?

The cost of raising a child is too much for most people. Yes, accidents happen and bad judgement often occurs but the resulting children have little hope unless communities support them and even that is becoming difficult as resources dwindle, childcare costs rise, wars rage, and the population ages. I do not expect to ever be a grand parent.

It has always been so, but in the past people neither cared nor were they educated enough to acknowledge kids need a good environment to grow up in and of course didn't have the means to stop either. And it's still the case in many communities. But I think the higher your standards, the less you are inclined to reproduce.

This is why more people are child free.

Yes. It is for the rich.
