Ah, c'mon Jeff. I could apply the same nihilistic reductio to your having
any relationship, marital or otherwise.

Need someone to talk to? -- get a therapist, they're better trained.
Need someone with unbounded affection for you? -- get a dog.
Need someone to take to parties? -- hire an escort.

Pretty pointless, isn't it? Same with your one-note complaints about having
children. You don't actually want to understand, you just want to be
confirmed in the rightness of your choice. Being childless is a fine
choice, but don't act like people with children have some kind of problem.
