Childlessness Bothers Men More Than Women
Date:10/19/2007

Study found the more educated the woman, the less the idea bothered her

FRIDAY, Oct. 19 (HealthDay News) -- Women are more comfortable with the idea of childlessness than men, new research shows, and the surprise finding might really reflect differences in how each gender views the pressures of parenthood.
