Since the Iowa couple have been together for eight years, the questions started even earlier than that, Carrie told BuzzFeed News.
“We don’t want kids, but if it’s Grandma asking, I won’t tell her straight up…because we don’t want to give her a heart attack,” Carrie said. “So usually, I’ll give her the general ‘We’ll see!’ or ‘Not this year!’”
4. Carrie doesn’t take her family’s “bugging to have a baby” too seriously, she said.
“They’re just curious because it seems like everyone around us if having kids,” she said.
“But in this generation especially, people are choosing to wait to have kids — and choosing to not have kids. I think a lot of people can relate to that,” she said.
