A had a lot of friends who had kids when they were young (early 20's) while I remained childless. I had variations of the same conversation with each of them, some multiple times. Basically, they'd say: I love my kids, wouldn't trade them for anything. But it was a huge mistake to have them. Don't make the same mistake I did. Probably some of that was normal frustration bubbling over. But I've heard it a lot, and continue to hear to this day. I noticed this especially for people in their late 20s and early 30s. You're done with college so you're working and have a bit of cash for the first time, yet its still really fun to have big parties or go camping with a big group of friends for the weekend. And go out and see bands or even a movie. The couples with kids didn't get to do any of that. Or if they did they felt guilty as hell.
