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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!
