This is a question that has risen several times in my household. I was raised in a family with another sibling...an older sister. At 3 years apart, during our earlier years, we never fought too much, but didn't really ever hang out or spend too much time with one another. As we've both grown older, we definitely don't have the connection that we should. Now that I have a baby daughter, my wife and pretty much everyone else around here say that it's cruel not to have a second child. REALLY? If I feel that having one child is fine, and she's my world (that perfect little angel), why should I be forced to have a second child and make things double hectic and add stress, especially financially, not to mention that I get very little sleep working evening shifts as it is, but through in a second baby and I might not get any! What do you think? If one person doesn't want a second child, but his/her spouse does, who wins?
