My question is , do you want to have children ?
Why do you make this choice ?
Does any of the information I have provided change your stance , and why?


I like your question: Yes I would love to have children...which a good thing since I have 6 of them. They were all concious choices, in face I was on fertility drugs to concieve the first one (I guess we figured out that problem)

I believe the best thing I can do for society is to raise children with a strong sense of self-worth who will go out to make a positive impact on the world. I am only one person, they are six smart, energetic, positive young people.

I didn't actually read your information (I will do so, tho, because I believe that no education is wasted, even if I don't agree with it) I have seen a trend to smaller families, with many women chosing not to have children at all. With the divorce rate so high in North America, and so many people focussed on careers, it seems to be the smart thing to do.

I chose to have all these children, and I stay home to raise them. If you don't like children, if you will resent them in your life (they are ruining my career, they destroy figures, they cost too much, etc), then PLEASE don't have them. It's a horrible life for a child to grow up feeling unwanted and unloved.

*edit: I read the material ( I did say I would), and I can honestly say i am doing my part. BTW...we aren't sure we are finished having children....but I let at least four other couples off the hook (aren't I generous?)

I would very much like to have children. The need to spread my genes into the future is a constant thought lingering in my mind.

The better question would be... as a hard-core gamer and anime fanatic... would it honestly be safe for me to have children? I might spend a couple of days in a row playing WoW.

i don't want any children.

From what I have gathered from this thread so far , it is mostly women who dont want to be parents .

That could be a major problem.

I don't think so. I'm way to selfish and impatient to have a kid. They are so needy.
Plus, from what I have read plenty of people are still having kids, so no need to worry about the human race disappearing.

I never want children. I have no motherly drive or instinct, I'm selfish, and they are expensive. There is also no one I want to have kids with... I think that is a pretty big factor.

No, maybe in the future I'll change my mind but no, as a Father I'd probably be a bad role model.

Not me, it sounds like too much work, and its not as fun and enjoyable as people make it out to be.

Just taking care of my pets is enough work for me, I don't see the point in even getting a girlfriend. My motto: As long as I have friends, hobbies and pets I'll be fine. Besides don't a lot of women I see today think every guy is a pervert or a weirdo. Too much stress and besides watching anime is much better and cooler.

Edit: Now I know it sounds cool to date and what not, but has anyone REALLY thought about what happens next? Its not as fun as you think it is, a baby will NEVER ever be quiet and neither will kids. You can forget all about anime for about 18 years or longer.
