How many children do you want to have? Why/why not?


The aim of this thread is to investigate the attitudes of people from different parts of the world with regards to having kids. This is why the poll will show your identity.

I would love at least four. Children are blessings, and I enjoy in them even now even if they are not mine.

I listed 2. I really only want 1 of my own but I have more or less adopted my girlfriends toddler and plan on raising her as my own.

So I didn't know if you are referring to biological children or children you raise.

Actually, I hadn't even thought of that, but I'm glad you introduced it. It's too bad that Chinese members rarely take part in this kind of thread, because I'd like to see their reaction to this.

Would Chinese members be likely to react to my response for some reason?

Not necessarily. It's just because my personal interests involve western and Chinese societies, so I'd like to compare.

Oh you meant responses to the thread. Yes I always like it when east Asian posters give us their perspective because from where I'm sitting it is easy to forget the West is not the whole World.
