Aaron’s wife is in the house! And she’s ready to dive into one of the most FAQ questions. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness, and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM https://iamalpham.com/ AaronMarino https://aaronmarino.com/ Pete & Pedro https://peteandpedro.com/ Tiege Hanley https://www.tiege.com/and ENEMY https://enemy.com/ says the question about why he doesn’t have kids is often asked. Our society expects married couples (especially in their 30s) to have kids. Why don’t the Marinos?
Time to make a decision
Alpha and his wife got married later in life (in their 30s) — and that fact is a reason why they’ve been successful with their marriage. You change so much in your 20s! So, why don’t they have kids. She’s career minded and a hard worker, which attracted Alpha to her. She owned her own home by 27 years old and was driving a nice car at that time too. His wife never really wanted kids, and because they decided not to have kids, she poured herself into her career.
Likewise, Alpha was always focused on being successful with his career — which didn’t include children. Alpha is selfish, and plus they both liked their life. She did consider having children due to Alpha being an only child and the only way to bring grandchildren. She felt pressured about that (friends and family asking when they’ll have kids), but they made a decision together. They didn’t have that burning desire, so they decided not to have kids.
Revisiting the decision
Alpha’s wife revisited having children when she hit her 40s. Alpha reassured her that they are on the same page with children. At 45 years old, they still don’t have any regrets. Raising children is hard. Alpha doesn’t feel he’s missing anything, especially since he gets his paternal instincts fulfilled by helping men through his videos. Both Alpha and his wife are living their dreams — and they have no regrets. They are happy because of it, to boot.
Most people in our society want kids, but Alpha and his wife decided otherwise. The takeaway is that when you meet your special someone, you need to make sure you are on the same page with this decision. If not, animosity could build. They think realistically who will take care of them when they’re older. Subsequently, they are making plans for their older years.
Moral to the story: DO YOU!
Mid-life crises stem from pressure, according to Alpha. You are doing things people want you to do, and you’re not being true to yourself. A lot of guys have them because they are living for someone else: college, job, married, children, and then the realization of death hits, which sprouts feelings of regrets. If you are true to yourself, you can avoid this. Sure, Alpha’s been selfish but he’s grown with his partner — and if they grown in different directions, they both are okay with the other person’s growth.
The bottom line is this is your life! DO YOU! And you should not be pressured into doing something you don’t want to do or your direction. There’s a degree of guilt that comes along with making a decision that’s not popular with your friends, family, and society. If you are struggling dealing with an issue, seek help such as counseling. Alpha did, and it was one of the best things he did for himself. You can do it from the comfort of your own home with Better Help.
