How many children would you recommend to a newly married couple at this age and time? With the current population explosions, a smaller family size is the way to isnt it?

I suppose it's quite the individual decision....but if I had had children I would have wanted 1 or 2.

I think it's wrong for anyone to say what sized family a married couple can have. Here in Australia the government pays new parents a baby bonus for each child - it's to encourage us to have larger families so the population can grow. We are full of elderly people so once they are gone we'll have a very small population. It also depends on where you live, how many kids you can afford & how many you are happy to raise. I think only the couple themselves, who know their financial limits can decide what sized family would best suit their circumstances!
