How many children do you want?Watch
I want my child to have a sibling so that rules out 1, and I don't want to veer towards middle child syndrome so that rules out 3.
If only men could give birth.
Then I'd want 10.
Offset that with the happier sides to life but still left with them having to face the same as the rest of us at some point. It seemed too mean but in the end I reconciled that with just being a fact of life you can't get away from. For me having children would potentially bring joy and I think trying to find as much joy in life is what everyone should strive to do even though it's not always that straightforward. That's the way I see it now anyway.
Only 2 if I don't have a lot of money when I'm older.
If I can afford it and do have a lot of cash to support many, I would happily start building my dynasty and have 10 kids. Of course, I'd need to know if my future SO is okay with that.
