The article is a report on our own research concerning how spouses who do not take over parental roles assess their family. The study aimed to search for a relationship between evaluating one’s family and life/marital satisfaction and attitudes towards children among spouses who do not undertake parenting. The study was carried out from a developmental perspective. The research group consisted of 76 married persons in their early adulthood. The participants postponed taking on parental roles for a specified time or declared voluntary childlessness. The analysis showed that significant relationships exist between family assessment and: life satisfaction (in men), marital satisfaction (in women), and attitudes towards children (in both genders). The research revealed that both the quality of family relationships and gender play an important role in shaping procreative attitudes of spouses who do not take parental roles.
