    There are numerous scientific studies that show that having kids decreases a person's happiness, not to mention increases stress. So, would you have kids.

    I would like to have kids one day, whenever that may be.

    Maybe one day, and I can understand why as it gives many people purpose in their life. Right now though, I'm not so keen.

    In the future, yes. Not now though.

    Although, I would rather adopt than have my own kids. Why bring more children into the world when there are already thousands (perhaps millions) which already need homes?

    Yes. We're planning to start having children by next year.

    I'm not sure I could provide sufficiently for kids at the moment. It would be irresponsible to have any before I have some more money/stability.

    Although when I marry Emma Watson it will all be ok.

    I'm waiting until we have a mortgage before we start a family, already started saving so will hopefully have our own house by 25 if all goes to plan. I'm certainly in no position to have a child now.
