Nonparents.com is an excellent and informative website for people without children by circumstance or choice. 

Because being a parent is an enormous responsibility – and not for everyone. As Pink Gazelle Productions explored in our documentary, Whatever Floats Your Boat…Perspectives on Motherhood, the decision ‘to be or not to be…a mom’ is just that: a decision not a given.
