I was known as a child lover. I like kids a lot. Even before I used to baby sit my cousins if theor parents are busy or not around. I like to have conversations with my neephews as well. Maybe, I just like them because I am also a kid at heart. Most of my friends and acquiantances keeps on asking when will i have my own, because I think I told you before with my previous posts that I am in a stable relationship and also on a legal age to start up a family. Honestly, I feel little irritated if they brought that issue to me. Like hey, they are more EXCITED than I am. I don't know, I know I want it and sometimes I really wish to be pregnant but then suddenly a lot of worries come up to me like: I wont be able to do things like I used to if I have kids, my figure will change, I will look different and etc. Well, everything comes in God's will..... If it comes,,, I'd be happt but for now I want to just enjoy as long as I can.

if by your photo you have plenty of time make sure you have a stable income and a stable home before you bring a child into this world i know this is a bit harsh for me to say but i am a 46 year old man and saw my child 2 times since she was born but as she is my only child its a fear i have to live with for the rest on my life

It is your life. And whatever you have decided on is your choice. Feel free to enjoy your life as it is now. You can no longer turn your back to your youth once you get married. But when you do get a little older and a lot mature, you'll realize that everything else that concerns you doesn't matter. So being selfless is your next goal, and probably with that comes the marriage and the family when everything is not all about ME but all about US, WE and the kids.

TRUE... that's why I think need to be emotionally and financially stable beforehand =)

Exactly! You should not do something that others have told you to do unless you really are prepared for it. If I only had a choice, I would have waited long enough before settling down so that I could have given my family a better life.
