We know that not every woman wants to be a mother – indeed, many women are, by choice or life circumstance, childless. Perhaps they never wanted children and put off having children until it was too late; perhaps they tried and failed for medical reasons; perhaps they had a child and a difficult experience only served to reinforce their decision. Whatever the reason, many aunts have found that people in their lives simply don’t understand why they are childless when they have nieces or nephews.
Many people often feel like their family doesn’t care about them. I think it’s also important for people who don’t have children themselves in their lives to know what goes through their minds when they see a childless aunt or uncle in their family. Sometimes people are afraid they might make someone upset by saying the wrong things. This is true especially when it comes to the topic of children and not having any.
True, there are few things more beautiful than the bond of love between an aunt and her nieces or nephews. But surely, there is more to life than just having children Aunts have plenty more gifts to give.
Here is a collection of childless aunt quotes about aunts who do not have children but see their nieces and nephews as their children.
