    Same here, the girlfriend wants kids, I don't. I think it will be quite a common problem amongst couples.

    Agreed. But i wasnt going to give in so i left. I dont see the obsession with children. Im doing my bit to compensate for the over population of the planet.

    I think I will probably end up giving in to her.

    I'd say family in terms of keeping my current family, but in terms of getting a career or starting a family, I'd say career. I'm happy with my family as it is right now.

    Because we are not all materialisticpeople? :rolleyes:

    Call me mad, but if you love someone, and I mean honestly love them, would you not rather live on the streets than lose them?!

    I know I would.

    Evidently people don't understand that one thing is another person's opinion unless accompanied by 'IMO', IMHO' or 'PERSONALLY'...

    But to answer your question - No, I wouldn't. Sure, I may love them but if they loved me why would they put me in a situation where it was them or my career? Something they would know I also loved?

    Hey, maybe it's all down to how we were raised, class, closeness to family and all that jazz.

    Didn't stop to think I was asking you the question to gain an insight into your opinion? :rolleyes:

    Fair point though. Fair point.
