Quote from: Money Ronin on October 30, 2018, 06:32:45 PMSure, if you assume no kid, their financial problems are solved. If I didn't have kids, I'd be sipping Pina Coladas and getting Caught in the Rain (Google it). I wouldn't need to live in my average but expensive house in a good school district. I wouldn't have to pay double (4 vs 2 people) when I go on vacation or pay for peak pricing during summer and winter vacations. Then there is summer camp, scouting, food, clothing, etc.Kids are expensive and my largest category of discretionary spend. But since most people do end up having kids, the article really put things into perspective. We all pay (often dearly) for the choices we make.
