Hi Everyone i am happily living with my partner and have twin daughters we are trying to decide whether we should have another child our daughters are 6 years old and we are 23 years old well im 24, we keep changing our mind because we like the though of us still be youngish when our children are grown up [eg] left school. what is your opinion do you think having another child at 23 is the right thing to do or do you think 2 children at 23 is enough, i would enjoy reading any opinions you have as we just dont know what to do its hard to decide. we also want to get married soon aswell been together for 10 years since we was at school at the age of 13 years.

I think you have plenty of time to decide. If you are unsure about it, then there is no reason to jump to a decision right away. You are both so young, you have so many years left to make sure you are making the right choice. Wait until you are married, and then talk about it again. Ask your other children what they would think about a new addition as well, and think about how it would change your living arrangemtns, your income, etc.

hello, nglentasha. just like you i'm a young father with two kids, and i'm having another one on the way. you basically have got to ask yourself a few questions, is your relationship strong? can you financially afford another child? and what do your little kids think of maybe having another baby sister or brother. you have really got to think hard about this.

The main thing you need to question is if you can handle another set of twins. If you're genetically predisposed to have twins every time you get pregnant, chances are the next one will be twins. You both need to sit down and think that through before making any decisions, as having another set of twins will be harder on you.
