  • Nope. I don't care whether we have children by making them ourselves or whether we adopt or foster or use a surrogate or a donor or whatever. How we get children doesn't particularly matter to me, I just care about us having a family to raise together. I wouldn't be too fussed if my partner couldn't have kids, though I think it'd upset him a lot.

  • Well I don't think I want kids so I would be fine with that.

    Hypothetically, if having kids was important to me then I am pretty sure I would want them to be biologically mine.

    • Eh, something about raising someone else's kids just bothers me.

      I guess part of it is that I am sacrificing my opportunity to continue my genetic leaniage in favor of dedicating my life to promoting someone else's genetic leaniage to thrive.

      Also it's also just more comforting to know my child has that biological connection to me and my partner and that we created our child together.

  • Of course not. We can always adopt a less fortunate little soul.

  • Adoption is always an option, and this means no unwanted pregnancy. It doesn't bother me

    • My answer is no I wouldn't under any circumstances

  • you were just shaming me for wanting my own child and now I run into this and you are doing the same to others LOL. I want my own children to pass my genes down. why do I feel important or special? because to me, I am and everyone should think the same about themselves. It doesn't warrant criticism to want your own kid.

    • Here's a scenario for you: you have a kid, raise them, then 25 years later you find out your kid was swapped for another at the hospital. Which one is more your kid - the one you spent 25 years with, or the one with your genes?

  • I have had women leave me when they found out I had a vasectomy. I had my one child. Was paying out the ass in child support and didn't want any more. I was a total slut in my 20s and it prevented many an unwanted pregnancy. My current wife and I adopted her sister's daughter 14 years later. It should not be an issue. There are so many children who are unwanted. Why not adopt?

    • Think about it.

      You live on and on. Then you die, having no children. You just failed what all your ancestors did to get to you. If your ancestors thought "i'll raise someone else's kid, it's okay it doesn't matter" You would never have happened.

    • Tbqh, that's not what my definition of success is.

  • Never having kids, I'd be elateed

  • Children are not the most important thing to me, the most important thing is the love we share and as long as we are together and we are having fun in and out of the bedroom then that is the most important part of a relationship
