Well, I am single unmarried and do not have children and thought I do not want children now. Well, I think when I want some later on. It is enough for me to have 1 girl and 1 boy. What about you? are you married? Do you have children now? How many of them? What do you think of having children?

I would love kids of any gender. Both are bliss. But had I get the chance to choose, I would go for girls. I just love girls. Happy new year, Summer.

I'm not yet married but me and my boyfriend are going steady.When we get married,I would like to have two sons.If financially well off,I'd like to have two more sons.So that would make it four children(sons) in all.

I would love to have four children. Right now I have one daughter who will be two in March. I am pregnant with my second child who is due at the beginning of July. My husband really wants a boy so if this one is a girl we will try again for a boy. We'll wait and see what I'm having this time and them decide in a year or so if we are ready for another baby.

I am married and we have 3 children. We have been married 7 years. Our kids are 6 3 and 1. Two girls and a boy. From the time I was younger I knew I wanted atleast 3 kids. We are happy with 3. If we could afford more kids though I think we probably would have more.

Just to have one child would be nice. I'm 34 and my husband is 29, and he is not ready to have children but I have been for a while. He's very practical, and thinks we should wait until we are doing better financially. He sees what my sister goes through, raising three kids, and always needing and asking for money that is needed to take care of them. My opinion is that no time will ever be the right or perfect time to have kids - but if you make a decent amount of money and have a lot to give, that's all that's needed. By the time my husband is ready, I will probably not be able to have kids.

I am married and have one handsome little guy and another one due in May. I knew I always wanted children and I am thrilled that I get to be a stay at home mom. I would like to have a total of four children but I am going to wait at least three years before my next one.

4 2 boys and 2 girls. I have 2 girls already but I don't think we will make it to 4. We may or may not try 1 more time not sure but after the third I do plan to get my tubes tied. I'm not getting any younger.

hey lovesummer i too am unmarried. When I will get married & wish to have a child I would decide to have on & only one.Be it a boy or a girl,it would not affect me much. I think i can offer best parenting & care if I have one child at home. Yes there are various emotional aspects that are needed to be taken care of in case of a single child,but i am ready to give it my best. Happy mylotting.
