If you don't already, do you plan on having kids in the future?
If you already do, had you planned your child/children?

Haha, just remember to stay on-topic, okay? I can see this straying, so let's try to avoid that. (:

Yes I plan to, whether married or not, I'd like to have a family and experience parenthood. I'm not able to get pregnant, so my partner and/or I would have to look into some alternatives.

Oh, this is about having kids, not whether you like them or not like the last one. But still...

inb4 Shining Raichu!

I've got no plans on having children, I'm likely to be unable to care for them. I sometimes wish I could remove my reproductive system, as it's useless to me outside of waking me up at night prematurely at times. Turns out I can't, YAY!!

If I do, it won't be for a very long time. Not until I'm in a steady relationship, and I'm not even looking for dates right now and don't want to. To be honest, the older I get, the less sure I am I ever want them. Which is okay. I've got a brother and sister who are all over having kids, so I'm sure my family won't mind if I don't have them. :p

I do, indeed, have a child. She was not exactly planned, but she's still a blessing anyway and I will never say otherwise. It kind of bothers me when people get patronizing about it because the most common thing I hear is "You're a little young to be a father, aren't you?" and that's horribly unfair to say. I have to be a father to her because if I'm not, then she's the one who loses.

I don't want any kids.
I like babies okay, but I don't like children and I certainly don't want to be a mother.
I'm very cautious about intercourse to make sure I don't get pregnant.

I'm going to let future me decide that one. In the end it entirely depends on who I decide to settle down with, if I even decide to at all. Right now, I don't want to father a child at all, and my brother almost made that mistake -- long story. ._.

Can't bring myself to bear a child, we're so overpopulated (with needy children, no less) a species as it is. I'm down to foster, though.

I love children and would love to have my own, but I have a fear of pregnancy and childbirth. I'm never gonna make enough to have an alternative to having my own child though, so I think one day, when I'm married and my spouse and I are ready, I'll just get over the fear or something and have a kid. lol I would love to adopt at least one child though. Adoption is beautiful.

If it happens it happens... I really don't think I want them right now, but I'm still relatively young, so I dunno.

I think you already know I have a three year old daughter, which she was not actually planned but hey I'm glad she is here.

Definitely! Of course, this would be far along the track at this point in my life. But one day, yeah I do hope I have children.

I am still far from having them but I suppose they would be nice, of course I might be terribly annoyed many times, I'll still love them if I have them xD

Of course. I want to raise children, who I can raise and show the world to.
I want to see them growing up.

This is something I think about a lot... I'd like children, yes, I'd love to have children, I can't think of anything better but I don't know. I'd certainly look at adoption rather than a biological child, for a few reasons, the main one being that there are already too many people on the planet, why can't I give a home to someone who's already here rather than create a new one to use up all of our resources?

I can't stand children at all. I would never have one of my own. I mean, when you have small children they pretty much take over your life. And then you have to live with and support them for like 18 years.
Considering children drive me absolutely doolally... yeah, as you can imagine, parenting is not anything I'd want to do, lol.

My whole family is like, trying to convince me otherwise, and telling me that "by the time you reach that age, you'll want kids!" especially with me being the only child, so, you know, my mum wants grandchildren. D:

Im ok with kids but Im not sure I want children of my own. I kinda want to have total freedom in my life and parents have so much responsibility. I dont know that Im responsible enough and being a parent would probably make me really anxious. Ive never thought of myself as parent material and I can't really see myself as one.

I don't really like children, but I have a feeling that eventually I'll have some. I'm growing a little bit more okay with the idea of having them. I'd prefer, if I did have children, to have one boy and one girl.

I really don't want to. But I have this gut feeling that it might happen. xD

I'll ONLY have kids if I marry Mr. Right. That is all.

I honestly really dislike being around children, and I don't see myself caring for one. So no.

^What he said^

Though that may change with time, but I don't yet have the financial or biological means (read: no woman in my life) to produce and raise a child, so I don't want one right now until I'm comfortable with it. I have a feeling it's going to happen either in my late-20's or early-30's, though.

You can't have a vasectomy?



Also, right now I don't want children, but I can't really say for the future. Childbirth and pregnancy is scary but I may change my mind. Though it wouldn't be my sole decision to make.

At the moment I don't want children, I don't really like being around them. Later in life maybe, who knows?

No, no, absolutely not. This actually has nothing to do with my hatred of children and everything to do with my mixed feelings of sympathy and disgust for parents. I can't imagine being a parent... to have everything that makes me me sucked out of me and replaced with what it takes to be a parent. That kind of metamorphosis in which you lose yourself is not something I wish to experience and it's not something I would want to see happen to any of my friends either.
