Wants Children/Does not want Children. Could you change your mind?Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)
Everyone has to state a preference. But how many of you have your mind made up about it? Is it better to have Children while young or wait until your older? Is it better for a child to be born to a 17 year old who is more versed in today's modern world or to someone more Worldly and mature?

Wants Children/Does not want Children. Could you change your mind?
Posted: 7/4/2013 1:01:00 AM
I'd just turned 29, it's a good age I think, I'd enjoyed most of my 20's and looking forward to my 40's with an older child.
I'd be very reluctant to start over again, partly through fear of having to do it all on my own again, but also because my life isn't just being about having children and there is other stuff I want to do.
I'm pretty certain my mind is made upon this....

I have oft times been at social gathering where non parents have looked at family groups and have seen the pain they carry for being childless. It's not for me and never was. I have also seen men resolute that they don't want to be dads become one and with true love say how wonderful it all is. . .

People who just say "I want children cos it's what you do, innit" (which I've heard a number of times as a reason for procreating) are likely to produce offspring which may not hugely benefit society. Maybe more education and open discussions can eventually improve the quality of the people in this country and unburden our welfare state, but I fear we have reached a tipping point due to the amount of people reliant on top-ups from our measly tax pool.


Agree with every word.

Indeed, there are many types in this country who shouldn't be allowed to have children!

For decades we where encouraged to have more children and because of the decline of large families the governments opened up the doors to immigration to counteract the birth decline in order to maintain growth in the economy. So it seems unlikely that having children was deemed a bad thing regardless of the social situation they where born into.
I believe it to be short term gain without consideration for the future.

What if some young beautiful thing came along and convinced you that they where prepared to be with you until the end of your days as long as you built the family unit together?
I have Lisicki from Wimbledon tennis waiting for my reply to her friend request in facebook and she has made everything quite plain to me!

I would have said I didn't want kids but marrying someone so much older than me (27 years) I had to make the choice then or possibly never.

Glad I took the choice to have children and I would not advise waiting.

I had both kids in my mid twenties and growing up with them has been amazing! I'm very content with them and I'm absolutely sure I don't want anymore. Of course that eliminates 90% of the women in my age group, given most women in their 30's are still looking to have kids etc.
