(Also: dinkie)

Formed by analogy with the term "yuppy/yuppie", this term refers to one of a couple that live in a monogamous relationship without children, wherein both are gainfully employed. Hence: Double Income No Kids.

Used chiefly as a demographic/marketing term, this phrase identifies the "dinky" as a target for consumer marketing strategies aimed at individuals with ready liquidity and few firm demands upon their time (outside of work commitments). This makes them demographically interesting as targets for expensive consumer goods and upscale fashion items.
