I sure haven't figured it out. I know different people have different reasons.

Hah, good question and to be honest, I can't really answer; there is no 'good' reason to have kids. There are any number of reasons, many of them 'bad' but I don't think a single one of them could be termed 'good.' Me? I don't want kids, never have done and it's perhaps one of the only things I've ever been sure will not change in the future.

I hear you. When I was young I said I didn't want them ever. I'm more indifferent now. If it happens it happens if it doesn't oh well. I won't be devastated.

Well, considering your profile says your 88... I don't think you have anything to worry about Oh, I'm going to do everything in my power to stay child free.

Wow! This is good. I could not imagine myself to be married (yet) in the near future. But I want to have my own kid/s even if I dont find a husband hahaha! Yeah, its nice to have a child of your own to take care of. I mean, its different if you're a girl/lady/woman whatever. I already have many responsibilities in life at a young age, but I think it will give me a sense of completeness and it will bring out things in me that I never would have thought I have.

I understand what you're saying but you are a complete person just the way you are.

when your kid hugs you with his little hands and tells you I love you...... you would know. There is no such happiness that is equal to that. Kids are so innocent and lovely and they help you look at the world in a new perspective. All kids are wonderful but if you have kids of your own they are a treasure.

I think in a lot of women in particular it is an instinct to have them an inner want I think which stems way back to when little girls play with dolls, I never had that instict, I get clucky over puppys and kittens and I guess there are a lot of people who just love kids, my lady doctor who is only quite youngs has had six kids, just because she loved kids, I told her she deserves a medal.

Good enough reason to have kids - To have someone to boss around! lol. Honestly its because I want to leave a legacy behind, and its the best way to do it.

I think you just know when it is your time . Now that I am in my late 20's I want to have kids now more than ever. I think a good reason is you want to raise a family and help a child grow.

Though there are so many reasons,important one is meaning of life is lost if we didn't opt for kids. Deinition of 'Family' is not complete without children! We need kids to create family, first thing. Other things are having fun with them, enjoy life etc!
