Wow, a philosophical discussion while I’m trying to finish packing… 😆

…Well, you might be right if you want to say that it’s easier to get rich if you don’t have children. I have no doubt it’s the most expensive “good” you’ll ever “buy”.

But I also think people can get richer not by increasing the number of dollars in their bank account, but from the inside, mentally, physically, socialogically ? you know what I mean.

Well, the original question was “how to make enough money to travel a lot”, so I naturally said it’s easier to do so if you don’t spend money on children. Which are extremely expensive.

Nothing per se against people who have children – none of us would be here otherwise. But I also think that very few people are competent to have any. I certainly am not; it’s a black art which my own parents, who are otherwise very competent people, were unable to transmit to me.
