What is a DINK? & How Child-Free Couples Connect - My Podcast Interview

Robyn D'Angelo

I was so honored to be featured on Stuart Fensterheim of The Couples Expert Scottsdale podcast. CLICK BELOW TO LISTEN.

Just a little history about the term “dink.” It was coined during the peek of the “yuppie” (Young Urban Professionals ... we love acronyms, don't we?) culture of the 1980s. As most know, it’s actually an acronym that stands for ‘Double Income, No Kids’. But there’s a lot more to being a dink than simply earning a living and being in a child-free relationship. And it’s not always the free-spirited, nothing-but-fun, and care-free world traveling that those blessed with children may sometimes envy.

As with all people, dink couples have stressors and triggers that may impact their ability to enjoy a close, connected relationship. Some of these stressors and triggers, however, are particular to those who are without children, be it by choice or by chance. 

In this episode, we chat about:

  • The prejudices and pressures that are faced by couples who have chosen to be child-free;
  • How important communication is to relieving stressors and building close, sustainable relationships;
  • Being child-free doesn’t automatically mean more time, better sex, or a relaxed relationship with your partner;
  • That the decision to bear children can and should rest solely with the woman, no matter what age;
  • And that there are experts worldwide who have valuable resources for not only dinks, but anyone who wants to improve their relationship with their partner.
