  • We always talk these things out together. It takes both of us to raise them.

  • We never talked about children... Neither of us wanted any. We have done everything we could to not get pregnant... But, three times now it's happened anyways...

  • My husband doesn't LET me do anything. I am a grown woman and I am more than capeable of making my own decisions. As far as children are concerned, I had two boys when we got married and we have two daughters as well. We would love to have more but because of my health we will not.

  • Its mostly me that come to that decision. He is easy going and not really holding us back from having more children. We have two daughters together, and he has two children as well.

  • We talked about it before we got married and we agreed on 2 children. (I wanted between 2 -4, he said maybe 2) Well over our 19 years of marriage we had our 2 and thought we were done. Then in 2004 we had a surprise (which ended in miscarriage) and after that loss hubs and I both decided we did want to have 1 more. So in 2006 we had our last, and our family is now complete.
