Condoleezza Rice on Families & Children
Secretary of State
"She was never interested in having children," says a close friend. "Part of the reason for getting married is companionship, and the other part is to have a family. If you take away the family piece of it, then perhaps it's not as urgent to get married."
When asked if she ever felt "obligated to continue the [Rice} bloodline," she said, "You mean, did I ever want kids? No. I think maybe it's because I'm an only child. I like children, but especially when they're 18. I didn't start out not to get married and have children. I don't regret that I couldn't pass on some of my genes, which sounds so incredibly narcissistic, but that I couldn't pass on some of the opportunities."
