Do you plan on having children one day? If not, why not? If so, tell us a little bit more; do you have any preference to whether they're boys or girls? How many? Explain why.

Yes, I want children. A girl and twin boys (that'd be lucky but a girl and boy would be good enough for me).

Mm, maybe. If I'm gonna have kids I'd want one boy and one girl with not more than three years age difference. Just two, so me and whoever I'm mating with are just replacing ourselves and not adding to the total population so much. Um and two because with one they will get only-child syndrome and with three two will gang up on the third. And any more would be way too many.

I might end up adopting kids though because gosh I don't want to carry around a child in my body for nine months and then have to expel it out a tiny opening. ._. And because those kids need good homes. :<

I want children someday. I would prefer having a boy and a girl, and a total of only two. I think having more would be too much for me lol.

No I'd never bring someone into this ****** world what kind of horrible person do you think I am

if I ever had a sudden urge for parenthood, I'd adopt, no doubt about it

To be honest, I don't know. I just... as things stand now, I definitely don't. I couldn't handle the responsibility of raising a child, and I like having lots of free time to do whatever I want. If I had kids, I wouldn't have nearly as much. But, I still can't figure out if I don't want kids before I'm ready, or if I don't want them at all.

I keep telling myself that it's a question I'll answer when I'm in the proper position: when I'm married. However, considering I'm 21 and still haven't even been on a casual date, I doubt that'll happen anytime soon. :)

If I did want kids, I'd probably want at least two: a boy and a girl. It just sounds nice I guess.

Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

I would very much like to have children in the future, preferably a boy and a girl (or two girls because girls are better than boys). However, looking at my family I don't wanna screw innocent people up with the insaness that is us. Though really... Who isn't insane?

If I do get married, I wouldn't mind having a boy or girl. As long as they share my common interests I'd be fine with whatever.

I do wan't a kiddo or two in the future, no preference on gender as I'd probably have about the same in common either way.

Vendak is like my hero right now :P

No, I do not want children. Babies are gross, annoying, sticky, shrill, horrible little creatures that I don't really fancy having anywhere in my vicinity. Also, I've seen the way children suck the life out of their parents, I've seen the way my parents are now dead inside - there's just nothing left of who they were anymore. They're tired all the time. And parents always worry about their children. I couldn't live a life where I was worrying all the time. Plus, children take all your money.

Being a parent is not something I'd wish on myself or my worst enemy. It's really not a life I want for myself. Plus there's that whole overpopulation thing that terrifies me half to death...

But if I were to become a parent, I think I'd want a boy. Though I'd like, adopt a 15-year-old one. They have trouble moving the older stock at adoption centres and a 15-year-old would be far less of a commitment than raising one from scratch :P

DO I EVER
I don't plan to have biological children, though that may happen one day. I plan to adopt about 4, over a period of say, six years at the max? Assuming that as a gay I will be allowed to adopt without any different pressures than of straight people, I plan to adopt two boys and two girls and we shall have a happy family THE END STORYTIME IS OVER.

No way. I hate children. I can't even stand being around my family anymore because of all the children. I mean the kids scream and cry all the time and everyone thinks they're the greatest thing in the world, and they act so stupid around them.
Not to mention, I'd feel bad for having them once they got a bit older because of how horrible the world is, and I'd have to make them go through it without me being able to do anything about it.

And really I don't see myself having time for kids anyways. I want to start my own business and that would totally be time consuming. I'll be much happier with a few cats, they're a lot less work and they're more enjoyable to be around.

But if I had kids, well I'll never.

Of course. I definitely intend to continue my family generation. I would prefer a boy, but that's something that I can't really decide on anyways.

September 2nd, 2011, 07:42 PM
Someday yeah :x As for how many, idk, if I'm having any at least two, but if I can only have one I'll be fine with that, idek how many really lool. And uh, girl/boy at least? Preference for girl though if I can only have one. idk this thread makes me feel awkward for some reason.

Astinus
September 2nd, 2011, 07:43 PM
Definitely not. I don't want the responsibility that comes with raising a child, needing to completely erase my schedule and who I am as a person. I love my freedom too much to ever lose it. I could never see myself having children, even when I was young, so it's safe to say that my feelings are going to stay this way.

So no children at all for me, biological or adopted.

Yeah, if I get married then I want a boy and a girl. I want the girl to be older by a few years and I know I want the boy's name to be Jake.

When I intend on getting married, I might decide to have 1-2 kids, maybe even 3.

Honestly I don't want to have kids their annoying and I plan to have a busy life plus I don't want to get fat , but if I had to choose I would choose a boy.

Maybe. Depending on what happens in the future. ;-; If I did, I'd want 2. No more and no less. \: Boy and a Girl, obv. :3

No. Never. I can't stand most children, although when I was working for a short time at a kindergarten I did have some moments of "oh, well, maybe it wouldn't be so bad" but I got over those feelings when I realized it was just that I liked some of those specific kids and the fact that I didn't have to raise them from the start nor take care of them all the time.

Oh, you. :(

I want to have kids. I really don't care how many, nor their genders, or anything of the sort. I just want to have kids someday and the person I'm gonna be with someday had better want some too. >:<

I'd love to have children, somewhere in the future. While at this age some people might think that babies and kids are annoying and gross, and too time consuming, etc, that will change when you have your own baby.

I'd like to have two children, and I don't really care if it's a boy or a girl. Right now I'd probably say girl, but like I said, once you have the baby, in the end it doesn't really matter anymore. What probably matters more to you at that moment is whether the child is healthy.

I have always dreamed of having a little girl. I am not sure why. I would be happy with either a girl or boy though. Twins would be so cute too!

Ink Heart
September 3rd, 2011, 06:04 AM
Haha.. I do wanna have children. x3 A boy and a girl. I'd want the boy to be even just a few years older, though. Twins would be cool too.. :>

September 3rd, 2011, 06:45 AM
Sure, why not. But for most of you who consider having children, I guess we forgot to mention that our partner needs to consent as well. And going by my character I'd prefer siding with my partner's decision.

marz
September 3rd, 2011, 06:55 AM
Yeah I'd like to have children sometime in my life. I can see perks to having either a boy or a girl, so I can't really decide. I guess that's a good thing because it's not like I can control it haha. I'd be happy with a girl or a boy.

Me and my other half plan on trying for a baby when we move into a house (currently in a rented flat, will be moving within the next year or so).

Neither of us have a preference on gender, my other half said we have to have at least two kids (so they dont turn out to be the spoilt only child like I am lol) and I want to have them close together so there arent big age gaps.

Ayselipera
September 3rd, 2011, 09:30 AM
No I don't really like children at all and I really doubt I would even like my own children. Besides that there's so much that comes with having a child that I don't think I could handle. Plus I worry that if I had a child he or she may end up with a few personality traits of mine that I wouldn't want anyone to have and I can see myself feeling extremely guilty because of that.

AND BESIDES ALL OF THAT... I would just be a terrible parent, yayaya!

September 3rd, 2011, 09:35 AM
Yeah, I've always thought about it. I can't really think of any specifics, but a girl first would be nice.

Elite Overlord LeSabre™

I'm worried that my temper would be far too short to be a parent and I'd likely end up doing something I'd regret. Other than that, if I did want kids, that would most certainly be years down the road from now... I'm definiteyly not ready yet.

And I'd prefer a girl. Who's a super genius.

Bluerang1
September 4th, 2011, 05:03 AM
I'm seriously considering not having them, but I probably will. The thing is, I hate kids and their annoyance and naivety and won't leave you alone and curious and urghh. Like Elite said, I too am short tempered so that ain't good.

If I do, I'd want a mixture, boy first though, I was a first and I'm a guy so let's keep the ball rolling! And as I don't have a brother, don't want one either, it would be cool to have a son first, in like over 10 years. Then girls. I think I only want one son, like I'm just one with two girls. Never experience brotherhood so much and don't know what to really expect. I'd want a boy then a girl and maybe one other whichever gender. No more. Seriously. Maybe even only two.

I think boys are easier to raise, less clothes, but I might find it easier to raise girls. My family contains a lot of females.

Oh boy and girl twins would be cool, but that's like double hassle at once. And if I had a kid prior or after, they may feel left out. Like my sister and I to my other sister, even though we aren't twins, the age difference excludes the little gal.

I've no real intention of having children. The thought of kids doesn't fill be with any other emotion apart from great despondence, and I don't really like kids as they are now. Of course, this could all change in the future, but for now I'm firmly in the 'no kids' camp.

You know, you could always raise your kids to be different than how kids are now a days. >__>

I really do want to have a couple kids when I find somebody for me. I don't care about gender or anything, so long as they are happy and healthy. ^__^

NightOfRemorse
September 4th, 2011, 12:15 PM
No way. I won't have any freedom to do anything with children around. I don't want to throw my life into the sewer.

My little cousin who constantly wants to play with me doesn't help my opinion of children, either.

Patchisou Yutohru
September 4th, 2011, 01:05 PM
At the moment, I have absolutely no intentions or thoughts of having children thanks to living with the worst children I can imagine. If I have children like them, I can safely say that I'd likely end up murdering them. My mindset may change in the future, so I am not completely against the idea of it. But I'd rather have my own than adopt. That's not to say that I wouldn't care for them just as much, however.

Sheep
September 4th, 2011, 01:12 PM
Yes and no. I sometimes see kids with their parents acting all cute and playing which makes me think, "awww, I want one too!" But when I see a screaming/crying kid... I just want to throw something at them. They're very annoying without a doubt, so I don't exactly know right now. But at the moment, I'm much more leaning towards no.

If I were to have kids though, I'd want boy and girl twins. Yeah, everyone wants twins nowadays.

You know, I've always wondered what it would be like to be in my own father's position. So yeah, I could deal with one kid. ONE, no more. And a boy would be best, cuz then I'd teach him baseball, football, etc. But more than one would be exceedingly awful, and I know that for a FACT. I'm the oldest of five, and I am kinda like a third parent in the house. Which I HATE. A lot.

Saryka
September 4th, 2011, 09:33 PM
I'm not 100% completely against the idea but as of right now I can't see myself being a parent in the future. Even as a kid I never really had any sort of desire to want to be a mom or anything like that. I always played daycare as a kid and never house, because you got to send the kids back to their actual parents in daycare, haha.

Eh, I dunno, my feelings about this topic seem to change. While I'm not a fan of babies, I can tolerate older children and sometimes when i'm babysitting I think "well hey, I guess I can do this". I've only ever babysat super hyped up, obnxious boys from the ages of 7 to 12 (and then my brother, but he lives with me so I don't think it counts) so I'm used to boys and I think raising them would be fun. I wouldn't mind a girl either though, since i'm pretty girly myself :)

ManhattanTheStarr
September 4th, 2011, 10:05 PM
I am not a kids' person at all. I don't like being around them, and seeing others literally dumb themselves down to communicate with them is just horrid. I never wanted to be a parent, either. I just don't see a purpose for me to have kids. And like someone else (who's name I can't remember) said, kids just suck the life outta you. I won't be able to fulfill my dreams when my main concern would be taking care of a kid. Heck, I don't even like touching or holding a baby. I really don't think kids are my thing. =/

September 5th, 2011, 01:18 AM
Maybe it's cause I'm a kids person and get along well with younger kids... or maybe it's the fact I'm siblingless and although prefer older siblings, younger ones would be nice too.
But yeah I would like to have kids when I get married. Preferably twin boys and a girl or a twin boy and twin girl - I just love twins! Especially if they're identical!
