    If he's serious, better that he knows it.

    My daughter's husband AND his parents view her two children as his. I am eternally grateful.

    Kind of. I really can't imagine caring for a kid that wasn't my own as much as I do for the ones that are my own. I could probably care some, but I'd have to try. With my own, it is as natural as breathing air.

    My parents both divorced and remarried. My step dad took care of me financially, but there was a distance between us. I still call him by his first name. Now, we definitely love each other, but that relationship took years to build.

    Re: Do you want children?

    I am a very proud father of the most beautiful 6 month baby girl any of you will ever have the pleasure to lay eyes on:



    Someday, I would like to be the father of the most beautiful baby boy any of you will ever have the pleasure to lay eyes on. Some years from now, I hope to be the grandfather of the most beautiful grand children you will have ever seen.

    Want to know how cute my daughter is? My daughter is so cute that I get discounts when I go to restaurants by the management. My daughter is so cute she won a baby pageant and we just happened to be in the mall that day, we didn't even have her dressed for it. My daughter is so cute people with their OWN BABY CHILDREN come up to me and say that is the cutest baby I have ever seen. That is all.

    I don't think that this poll will help ya much. There seem to be a lot more men that post on this forum than women so you won't have a very accurate sample.

    Sorry for the video, I couldn't resist.




    If I could ever handle a child financially I would adopt, there are enough parent-less children in this world to go around IMO, just my personal preference/opinion.

    Re: Do you want children?

    Personally I want 2 more kids. Love the two I already have to death. But my wife said no more unless I am the one to get pregnant. :P But how can a person not love something this cute?

    When he starts calling you "Dad", then you have a quick change of heart. I was a little leary about getting into instant fatherhood at first, but the more I got to know the boy, the easier the idea became to me. Besides that I knew I was never going to be a natural father and the boy needed one. For the past 17 years he has been MY son.

    Re: Do you want children?

    replacement birthrate for a nation is 2.1

    no society has ever recovered from their birthrate dropping below 1.8

    so what happens is the average age of a society increases, until there aren't enough young to take care of all the elderly, and the state is no longer collecting enough resources to step in.

    those without children and without beau-coup money will be abandoned, though incrementally.

    Greece, for example, as I recall, has the lowest birthrate in the EU. Though Italy is not too far behind.


    hope all you childless ones enjoy your retirement!
