Today on today's episode of Chill & Grace, I spend time with Raif and Connie how run the Goodlett Guide, a blog dedicated to their childfree relationships, travel and lifestyle.
“The most common one is ‘You’ll change your mind.’ I don’t get as many of the critiques in terms of ‘You’re selfish’ because its seen as ambitious. It’s permissible for me to focus on my career rather than focus on children which I don’t think is a luxury women get.”
I was drawn to their honesty of this married, childfree couple from London on their childfree life from joining the mile-high club to Raif's decision to get a vasectomy at 25 so that he could take control of his childfree future. Raif is the first male I have had on my podcast and brought such a new element to the conversation and to see the support they had for each other was inspiring. I know so many women out there are not as fortunate to find a partner who supports their decision.
We discussed the double standard men and women face being childfree, life as a childfree couple in London and how even though they run a blog on being childfree there are still those who believe they will have kids.
