Childfree, Married Couples, Communication


An investigation into the psychological and physiological impacts of infertility on married couples A childfree adult is one who has never wanted children and has no plans to do so in the future. They have no physical or mental limitations that would prevent them from having children, yet they make the decision not to. The relevance, motivations, experiences, and modes of communication between childless husbands and wives are the primary foci of this study project. The principles of phenomenology and social construction are used in this research to build reality. Interviews with single participants are a key component of the phenomenological approach to data collection. This poll found that eight of the married couples who do not have children have been together for at least three years but have not been successful in having children. The data was examined using interpretive research methods as well as literary research procedures. The findings of this study show that the presence of children is not considered to be a defining characteristic of marriage, and they also show that not having children can have positive effects on other aspects of life, particularly on the capacity of a husband and wife to know and appreciate each other. According to field research, the relationship between married couples who do not have any children is found to be a healthy one. Multiple variables, including a lack of desire for children, individual circumstances and job goals, health concerns, and personal opinions against bringing more physical people into the world, can affect complex life decisions. Some examples of these causes are: It is possible that a person might be better off if they did not have children, despite the fact that there does not seem to be an evolutionary rationale for this choice.
