At 41, Seth Rogen Is the Happiest About Not Having Kids, and His Reasons Are Highly Compelling
Seth Rogen, 40, and his wife, Lauren, 41, are thriving these days, and they say they owe it all to not having kids in their lives. The Super Mario Bros. Movie star seems to be finding more reasons to be a family of 2 every day, and he’s happily sharing them with everyone else.
Seth Rogen and his wife have always been vocal about their child-free lifestyle.
Seth Rogen has been with his wife, Lauren Miller, for almost his entire career. They met in 2004, got engaged in 2010, married in 2011, and have been inseparable ever since. And just as they’re confident about choosing each other, they’re also firmly against having any kids. As Rogen once revealed, “I would say she wants kids less than I do.”
He then proceeded to explain that they don’t feel like anything is missing from their lives. It’s actually quite the opposite — when they compare their marriage to other couples, they notice a slight upper hand on their own side, explaining, “We have so much fun. I don’t know anyone who gets as much happiness out of their kids as we get out of our non-kids.”
The famous actor says he wouldn’t want to choose between kids and his work, revealing, “I wouldn’t be able to do all this work that I like. It’s something I think I was uncomfortable answering before. But [people] were like, ’How do you do so much?’ and, like, the answer is I don’t have kids.”
He also added that being child-free is a big reason for his career: “That has helped me succeed as well, definitely.”
In addition, Rogen and Miller get full support from their relatives, as he revealed, “My family’s really fine with it. I think they’ve known for a long time [that] we probably weren’t gonna have kids. They got my sister, [who] has 2 kids, so my parents have grandchildren, and they’re keeping them busy. That box is ticked, I think, to them in some ways.”
They now have even more reasons for not having kids.
Today, nearly 2 decades since meeting each other for the first time, Rogen and Miller are more confident than ever that they made the right choice not to become parents. Rogen says they become more grateful about being childless every day, explaining, “Me and my wife, neither of us were like that. Honestly, the older we get, the more happy and reaffirmed we are with our choice not to have kids.”
Rogen adds that they keep noticing more and more reasons to just be a family of 2 and their relationship greatly benefits from it. “We get to do whatever we want, we are in the prime of our lives, we are smarter than we’ve ever been, we understand ourselves more than we ever have, we have the capacity to achieve a level of work and a level of communication and care for one another,” the actor said.
