23. I've never been married, so no, I don't have any regrets
I'm not going to have a kid without being married and I haven't dated a guy who hasn't pissed me off completely by the 3rd date in years, so, no, I don't regret it. I always wanted to have kids, but I am close to my neices and nephew. I also work with kids.
