Late 30s, no kids. No plans to have them either. I'm the second youngest of 11 kids. Ain't nothing I don't know about kids. No need to have my own. Read King Lear. I see it played out time and time IRL at work. I've gotta imagine that the ability to fly to Aruba for a week of sunshine or Vegas for a few days of hedonism is seriously inhibited by children. My aunt is late 40's, no children, unmarried (we don't think she's a dyke, but I dunno ). During her lifetime, she's lived all over the U.S. (Boston, Phoenix, San Francisco, Hawaii for many years) and all over the world (most recently Italy). She's never made much money, but she seems pretty happy. Well, she's unemployed now and is sort of a caretaker for my grandparents, so she's not that happy at the moment.
