If such is important to you then it is important, and if it is not important to you then it ain't important...irregardless of who tries to convince you otherwise. I never like kids even when I was a kid, so I avoided having any, even though there were quite a few that tried fanatically to change my mind. I have no regrets. Not everyone is suited to be a parent, and not everyone is suited to be a lone wolf. In the end you have to know yourself enough to be true to your self.
