“When are you going to have kids?”
Nearly every married has received this question one or a thousand times. While this question is socially acceptable, it is actually disrespectful and intrusive to a couple’s privacy, at least that is what Douglas has seen. In his editorial piece, Douglas explains why people shouldn’t ask, “When are you going to have kids?” by discussing his personal experience with infertility. He writes:
“As I’ve said, family planning is super personal. And infertility is massively painful. Just remember that asking someone you don’t know too well about when they are going to have kids is far more personal than asking how much credit card debt they have. You have no idea what the couple is going through in that area of their lives.”
