Social cost of being too money-minded

I am resigned to the fact that I cannot plan financially for a family. I am 33 years old and if I had a son now, I would have to bear his expenses and the cost of education until he was 24 (including NS), and I would be 57. I am certain working life will be no easier in future, with ever-increasing competition from the younger generation and new citizens.
