    How many children would you ideally like to have?

    A topic that is rather fundamental (understatement of the century) to our survival and and eventual renewal, so just interested in the thoughts of others on this....

    How many children would you ideally like to have (in a perfect world)?

    How many children do you realistically see yourself having? (feel free to enlarge on why)

    When do you think you might start a family? (feel free to enlarge on why)

    I would like to have five children, but I will probably only have three.

    When I am twenty-five I should be ready to start a family.

    1. 2 is a good number for me.

    2. Maybe 1, possibly 2 it also depends on my partner, in america the women are affected by the "enslavement" to family stereotype so nowadays I feel it is hard to have a family unless you have the right kind of person who is committed to bring a child into the world. Which is what I intend on finding.

    3. After I go through college, get a career going and work my way into a house with a gf and such. It will be a few years I believe finding what I want to do seems like a puzzle hard to solve nowadays.

    ad 1.) Ideally? Two or three, hopefully all boys. eyes:

    ad 2.) Probably one. As said in another post before: It has become very expensive to raise kids and I'm not rich. Unfortunately.

    ad 3.) I'm 27 now. Probably time to start. But there is one major problems at the moment: I live in a city and I don't want to raise children in a huge and dirty town, where they would have to play on sidewalks or small parks, which are pretending to be some kind of "natural landscape". I have to move to the countryside (hopefully somewhere up in the North ) first, which is planned to happen within the next five years. So probably at the age of 30 to 32 I'll start having a "real" family.

    Good points, indeed one must find the right person for them, looking forward to the future gives one the benefit of anticipation though, knowing what you want allows you to start actively watching in the here and now

    In an ideal world I would like 5 or 6 kids 3 boys and 2 girls would be good.

    I hope to have 2 or 3 though, that seems realistic to me. 3 seems the magical number in my extended family too

    I wanted somewhere stable & quiet to raise children, which we have found thankfully, and want to travel a little more before focusing myself on raising children, so after a few more trips and the house is mostly paid is the right time for me. (Not too long though)

    In an extended family, it is easier to have children earlier, as one's siblings, parents and grandparents can also help with the effort (I help with the children of my brother & sister) which is how it is meant to be I feel. Most people seem shut off from their families though these days..

    1. No more than five, and no less than three.

    2. At the moment I really cannot say. It's possible that I won't ever have any kids at all.

    3. If I have children someday, it won't happen in the immediate future. I'd say a couple of years from now at the very earliest.

    Amazing!

    You and me are so alike, it seems, we could be sisters

    It's funny I had written an almost identical post some moths ago in another forum..

    I too was complaining about how raising children has become a luxury nowadays, and how very few people can afford to have more than one, at least where I live..

    I was also expressing the view that the urban environment is totally unsuitable for the upbringing of children and that I would like to settle down in the countryside before I have any.

    I am also -almost- 27 and I haven't had any yet, and I seriously feel like my clock is ticking..I am not getting any younger :frown:

    But it is modern life that imposes all that financial insecurity that makes the average woman become a mother in her thirties..

    I would also like to have 2-3 children (given my age I could not have more even if I wanted to), also preferably boys but I wouldn't mind a girl as well, as long as I have also a boy.
