I regret just about every decision I’ve made in the last 11 years sometimes even marrying my wife. I mostly regret caving to the pressure and giving in to having children I do love my kids but now I hate my life. She knew I hated kids and was very open and adimant about never having any but the years of pressure from my wife and especially her family got to me, I was afraid she’d leave me if I didn’t but she knew full well when we got married I refused to have kids. Now I love them very much but they were strictly to make her happy I get little joy in life and very little from being a father there is the occasional moment but the vast majority of it is just stress and misery. We were so much happier before and I feel having kids has detoriated our marriage and that was the only thing I wanted in life. I resent my wife for pushing me into it raising a family mostly sucks and I am now living the exact opposite of the life I wanted.
