    Not until i'm over 30. But as for the whole 'settling down' thing, like getting married and having a house together, it depends on factors like how soon i find the guy i want to be with forever, and whether or not we're both ready for that kind of commitment. But my plan is from now until i'm 30, i'm just going to live my life as it comes and have a damn good time while i'm at it.

    I'd love to have a family - and hopefully not leave it til I'm too old to truly enjoy it - but I'd want a good permanent job, to be financially stable and to have been married to a partner for a while first - so not any time in the near future

    Well first off there's the back pain, swollen ankles, mood swings, morning sickness, loss of bladder control..... then you've got several hours of agonising pain as it tries to force its way out of your body, possibly breaking bones, requiring your vajayjay to have an incision and random pooing as you push for dear life, all happening in the process. Next you have the crappy nappies, constant wailing and no sleep. Then the tantrums, "I want this"-ing, "It's not fair, you suck"-ing, rule breaking, you making sure they don't die of alcohol abuse/ get kidnapped/ making sure they're safe by wanting to know where they are and setting times to be home by, to the responce "That's not fair, you're so embarassing, you don't understand me". Not to mention the thousands upon thousands of pounds you have to spend to feed/ clothe/ house/ buy games consoles for/ buy holidays for, etc until they hit about 21.... then they don't want to see you again and put you in a care home......

    I want at least 3. Maybe 4. I could change my mind after experiencing pregnancy and childbirth though! In 10 years' time I hope to be married with a couple of sprogs, but I'm not in a relationship now.

    same here - don't bring a new life in to the world to live your dreams through. How would you feel if that is how your parents saw you?

    I'd like kids by the time I'm 35 (if I'm in a serious relationship by then), and seeing as I'm 22 at the mo, within the next 10 years doesn't sound that ridiculous. Don't want to even think of settling down til I've at least finished with education though.

    I certainly would like a child or two in the future, but for right now I just want to be a teenager.
    (Original post by i.am.lost)
    Just one, please.
    Please, I implore you. Don't have an only child, believe me they will miss out on so much and feel so lonely so many times. It will shape who they are, but not in a positive way.
