122. Very true!
If the OP doesn't want kids, then he needs to level with the girlfriend.

I decided at the age of six that I did not want children. When I married at age 42, I thought that my husband felt the same way about kids as I do. However, he is more generous with his three employees, who he says lacked a "father figure" than he is with me! He has paid auto insurance, rent, and even child support for them! If I had known he had this secret desire to be a dad, he would have been in the discard pile long ago.

If the OP is not already sold on the idea of having kids, he shouldn't do it. It is truly a crap shoot; there is no guarantee that they will love you forever, or that they will someday make you proud. I would be willing to hedge a bet that most people who do regret having children keep it to themselves.
