I'm a childfree person (married) in my mid 40's. I agree with many of the comments, and appreciate the author's focus on childfree men vs. childfree women.

I find that I'm really struggling to maintain friendships with my childed friends - I've read plenty of articles about why moms are busy all the time (still don't buy it), but their husbands are also unaccountably busy all the time. Is there a pact that childed couples can never interact with childfree people? My wife and I love kids, just don't have our own. We're consciously excluded from all celebrations and events that include kids, and are finding it hard no to resent the mommy mafia and their thralls (husbands).
