    why does everyone here seem to be child hating idiots. kids are only screaming brats if u allow them to be like that and raise them that way.
    Well with that attitude you've certainly won me round. Unfortunately it's people like you that will have all the kids.

    Sure. If I ever find a girl I trust enough.

    I'm pretty sure I want kids once I'm married and have a fairly well paid and stable job and household.

    My body is simply just an elaborate means to carry, protect, and transmit my genome. So yes, I want to have offspring to fulfil my evolutionary role.

    Yes, I like kids and am fortunate enough for them not to be a significant financial burden.

    Having kids is natural. When I find someone obviously it will happen eventually.

    I would love to have kids and start my own family. Just living with a husband for the next 40/50yrs of my life seems nice but I want to experience having and raising my own children.

    Also its natural to have children, we are essentially our DNA and we live on by passing it on to our offspring.

    I certainly want kids. Coming home from work, to throw around a football, as the sun sets on a long summers day, with my kids would be amazing. The thought of being there for their Birth, for their first words, for their first day of school, is enough to turn me into a gooey-eyed mush.

    I really like children but I'm not yet sure if I want the financial burden and lifestyle change that comes with having them - although I do feel like I'd enjoy a career that concerns them (i.e. paediatrics or something).

    I'm leaning towards no. Mainly because I don't want to turn into a monster dad.

    Maybe in the future, although I want to focus on a career more than anything else. I can't really imagine having children or even a husband/partner because it's just too weird

    I would definitely want them if I was a man but, as a woman, the thought of pregnancy and childbirth terrifies me. I would rather adopt but my boyfriend wants his own kids so he will probably get his way (but he has to get a full time job first!).
