I'm in a similar situation, although for me the problem isn't so much that I don't have the opportunity to raid, it's just that I can't make the time commitment. Raiding requires at least 2-3 hours of uninterrupted time, typically on a weeknight which is something that is hard to do as you get older (and I don't even have kids, I don't know how people with kids ever manage to do anything).

I was trying to start super-casual raiding for a couple of months, but the few interested parties were either three time zones away or didn't understand what "super-casual" meant (joins guild, plays heavily, leaves guild after 5 days because the rest of us are hardly ever on - kids, jobs, commutes, other responsibilities, etc).The idea is to use raid lockout extensions to slowly complete a single raid since, for me and others I know, some raiding is better than no raiding. :)

The time constraints honestly are the only legitimate reason any player has for missing out on Raid Content in this expansion.

I was in a great guild that used to be very fun and successful, but in this expansion the guild leader became obsessed with downing content and it eventually killed the guild. I love raiding and could have gotten tagged to another raid guild, but I just can’t justify the time. 3-4 hours a night, 3 nights a week is such a minor commitment, yet with kids and work I don’t feel I can guarantee my attendance. I won’t do PUG raids because I have no tolerance for immature and insulting behavior. So I spend my time leveling alts. 5 85s so far.

I get the feeling that this is what I'm suffering from as well. WoW kinda feels boring right now, even though I still like playing it, and one of the major things that's changed is that I haven't been able to participate much in any of the stuff we used to do. Sure, you gotta devote some time to gearing up and learning the new mechanics, but it's been a few months now, and my guild really isn't in a position (or at least it doesn't feel like it) to pick raiding back up again. I liked raiding in Wrath, even if I was pidgeonholed into being the Tank Healer, and I miss raiding as a whole.
