Dear Al A Carte,

My friends keep asking me when my husband and I are going to start a family. We’re not even sure we want to have kids.

This situation is very stressful. How do I respond?

Dear Judged,

You should not CARROT all about what other people think.

Carrot Raisin Salad

1 lb. carrots, shreddedjudged
½ cup golden raisins
⅓ cup walnuts, corsely chopped
⅔ cup light mayonaise
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp Dijon Mustard

Combine carrots, raisins, and walnuts in a medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients, and stir until blended. Chill and serve.

The only opinions that matter are yours and your husband’s. You must lead your life in a manner that’s comfortable for you.
The next time the question arises, smile, and say, “I’ll let you know when the time comes.” And then change the subject.
