How do we break this news to [my mother-in-law], knowing it will break her heart and possibly damage the relationship we each have with her? My parents know my desire to have a Child-Free lifestyle, but they've known it for years — this is not the case with my mother-in-law. We've tried dropping hints about it, but she doesn't understand that kids just aren't in our future. Help? -Haymaker

And if you're wondering why we didn't post this question on Offbeat Home & Life, it's because we tend to keep ALL posts related to kids/family-planning issues on the Offbeat Families side of the content fence. But if you're interested in more child-free posts, you may want to check Offbeat Families' child-free archive.
