Nope. Kids are a burden. I get to live anywhere and do anything. Kids can rob you of that. And if you think I'll want any when I get older, I'm 37. Nope just not my thing. I like kids but love to give them back to their parents. That is what nieces and nephews are for and even then I'm ready to give them back after 1 day. I get tired of taking care of them. Can't even sit down and watch anime without having to entertain the kid.

I have 4 kids. 6 year old boy, 4 year old girl, and twin 13 month girls

Wouldn't trade them for the world.

Thanks. It's tiring - but worth it!

My feelings about this have changed a lot over the last 7-8 years. At first I thought that there was no way I would ever find someone worth raising children with, and then I met my husband who very slowly changed my mind on that.

Then I thought that maybe having just one would be okay, until my friend told me that it's better to have two so they have a sibling. I grew up with an older sister, so I can agree with that.

So my current answer, is yes, two children, and as for gender I would like at least one daughter. My current battle plan is that if we have a son first, I'll just adopt a daughter for the second. My husband is one of two brothers and I was told that the gender is determined by the sperm so I'd rather adopt than have two sons.

My Dad actually wanted a boy. His first three were girls (23, 20, 19) until he finally got two boys later (14, 7). We were all accidents though. Especially my little bro who's 7 now and turning 8 this upcoming month, lmao.

I wasn't planned, but my older sister was. My husband and his brother were both planned, and I told him that it was pretty rare when a family is like that.

I don't know. I'd be lucky to have the option.

Wow a lot of people don't want bundles of joy. A bit surprised honestly, I was expecting a lot more 'maybe one or two' kind of replies.




I Would like to have kids at some point, just not right now. I think kids can be really sweet and kind, and think thing that most adults can't. I would like one girl and have the rest be boys. The reason for this is because that's how my mother and I grew up. I wanna have a tough (but girly) girl in the family, and it would be cool if we could relate and such. ^^

I guess that when i was a younger man, I really wanted to settle down and have kids. But as a man who frankly thinks the world is run by bloody fucking morons, I don't think it is morally right for me to subject my progeny to a world I more or less hate. So ultimately, my answer is no.

Have you read 'Love So Life'? It's a really sweet story and there are these adorable twins. I like the manga, but the covers with the kids dressed up in costumes is a serious bonus. I've decided that if possible, I would like to dress my infants in all animal type jumpers. Luckily for me, my friend can sew and is totally in for this.

I'm not too surprised by the number of people who don't want children, and if anything, I think it's good. The fact that our generation has the ability to control our fertility in the first place is a miracle, so it's nice to see people doing what they really want to instead of feeling like kids are an inevitability.

I want a daughter more than anything, even though I am pretty sure she and I will probably butt heads a lot. And if we don't, then she will downright hate me when she's a teenager, but I don't mind. I don't expect my kids to love me back at first, or ever. So long as they're healthy and happy, that's more than enough for me. If they didn't hate me, I'd really like that, but I don't want to get my expectations up (I was a stubborn child and am now a stubborn adult so it's very likely my offspring will be stubborn like me).

I like adorable twins. I should know, I have my own set of them:

This is a bit old, as it's from May, but it's all of my kids and my wife!

All your kids are so cute! :3
If you dressed them all as animals and pulled them in a wagon for Halloween, you and your wife could be zoo keepers! :D
I do realize, sadly, that this dream is impossible because your older kids are old enough to want to have their own input on costumes and clothing now. T-T
