    It is commonly used in Australia at least. But it means only a stage of marriage usually - 'we travelled a lot when we were dinks'. It is used this way because it implies that after kids, there is less income and therefore travel is harder.

    Not in the UK. I've heard of it but never heard it used in conversation.

    Normally used as "dinkies" I think.

    Another one like it refers to older people having a good time "SKIers" - Spending the Kids Inheritance
