I want kids eventually, I'm just enjoying married life right now. Also I'd like to be making some more money before I have kids, but everyone keeps telling me that if I wait until I could afford a kid, I'll never have one!

I do not want kids. But, the possibility could arise in the future. But, as it stands, I'd probably adopt.

I don't want kids, but sometimes I have maternal pangs. It's odd.

Right now I don't have any but would give anything to be a mom. In due time I am hoping to have a baby belly. I have always for as long as I can remember wanted to be a mom.

I already have three awesome kids, I'd rather like to stick with that!

On one hand, I'm open to the idea of having kids - preferably adoptions because I feel too many kids are stuck in the system and want to help out somehow - but on the other, I think I'm not ever going to psychologically or emotionally capable of having children/dealing with them.

There are other reasons I'm disinclined to give birth, but that's another story.

I don't want to have kids, but if my partner really really wants them and I love them a lot I would consider it.

I might feel too dysphoric to have them myself, but I am 100% willing to consider adoption. I'm probably 50% or less likely to consider holding the kids inside of me, even if I love my partner a lot a lot. That partner would have to be super special to me.

If we were in a 2+ relationship, like poly, I might ask one of the other partners (if that is possible) to carry the children instead

My partner and I both really want kids but not yet, we're both too young right now. Everyone I know my age is having kids and has been for the last 2 or 3 years and I think it's crazy!

Hey, a lot of people chose this response. My roommate is that way. He says children are like parasites growing inside of you and aren't in his life plan at all. Actually he plans on getting snipped as soon as he has his own insurance.

This is a problem many women have. The good thing is that you know, rather than placing the blame on your child. I don't hold it against you at all and I hope nobody else in the thread does. There are ways to get help if you feel it is necessary, but as long as you don't hate the child, you shouldn't have much to worry about.

I'm pretty sure I do not want kids, but who knows... that could always change.

If people don't want kids, that's totally fine. Unfortunately, the people that generally decide to not have kids are the highly intelligent individuals whose DNA we really need in the gene pool. We're totally on the road to Idiocracy (it's a movie, check it out).

Eh, I don't hate kids - the "child-free" movement has really ruined the general perception of those of who who know we're not suited to parenthood as opposed to those who just plain hate other people/children. Because of them, the rest of us are still regarded with suspicion (sometimes of not being human).

Tell him to check out public health - that's how I got my tubal. Public health is pretty much "You're 21? You've thought this over? Okay, sign here, and we'll get you a doc who'll perform it." No requirements by private doctors/insurance saying "OMG U gotz hav kidz b4 i doos et!"

I would have a house full of kids provided I didn't have to birth them (I hated being pregnant the three times I was) and as long as I had enough help caring for them....say a full time nurse and a nanny!

I have three kids and I would love to have more but at 42 that's just not a prospect I look forward to again. Being pregnant as a 20 something was so much easier than being pregnant as an older 30 something! The early weeks felt like sheer hell even though I love the little guy to pieces.

Still if either of my guys wasn't totally serious about not wanting anymore children I'd probably have a litter....

I do not want kids but I may change my mind in the future. Most likely not.

I'm 20 with a 7 year old sister so I understand. Once she graduates I will be about 31

Adopting is always an option as well. There are plenty of children without real homes

We want kids one day if not naturally then by adoption. It's just not the right time now.
