  • Absolutely not ! That’s totally up to you and your partner

  • The size of your family is a personal decision, and the only opinion you need to take into consideration is that of your partner.

  • No – everyone has their own opinions and wants. The only factor would be my partners wishes also considered

  • Of course not, are they the ones giving birth and looking after them . Obviously your family values are important so ask yourself what you want .

  • It’s your life not theirs

  • Absolutely not!
    You have as many children as you & your partner decide to have.
    Don’t let others influence your decision.
    If you & your partner know you can cope & provide for as many children as you want then go for it!
    It is your life & no-one has the right to tell you how to live it.

  • no way! your smart and know what you want.

  • NO!
    Its not up to them its totally personal between you and your partner.

  • No, surely a couple would decide to have x amount of children based on other factors. I’ve never let friends, family or strangers run my life or influence my decisions.

  • do what makes you happy, not them. you don’t want to regret it later.

  • I think as long as you are emotionally and financially capable of supporting your children have as many as you want.

  • No if I want so many kids thats up to me not them they dont have to look after them

  • it doesn’t hurt to listen to other people opinions especially those that have the same amount of kids that you want but if you’re still happy with your decision & think you can handle it mentally, physically, emotionally & financially than go for it!!

  • No. I’ve made it clear that I wanted 3 children regardless of the gender and a lot of people think that I’m mad. Today I have 4 weeks until my 3rd arrives and I know that my family will be complete. Stuff them as it not up to them how many children you have.

  • If you feel you can deal with a brood do it. The people you are talking about all have different opinions and that is natural. each to their own.
