Hedonism and starting a family

Starting a family is a hedonists greatest challenge. Giving birth, sleepless nights, nappies, teething, choosing a school, school plays, sports days, another school, their friends, homework, GCSEs, ‘A’ levels, choosing a university, student debt, significant friends, split-ups, getting a job….. etc. ad nauseam. A family brings ridiculous happiness with many twists and turns. A hedonist knows there are significant downsides but the upside is wonderful. The secret: Don’t weaken joy will come.
