I've been fighting with the idea for awhile now. We can easily afford another child, the child would have his/her own room etc. I don't like the baby stage but I want a big family when they are older. My dh's family is not very loving or a very cohesive family and neither is mine so I want to create this for my own children and ourselves. Now I realize that they may not all get along etc but in a perfect world I want this and will teach them how to be a close family and how to love. We have two children now. Thank you.

I had children as an extension of our love, you can teach kids to be the way you want them to be, I know I did and now they are grown and exhibit all those attributes I instilled in them and family unions was one of those...

No, that isn't a dumb reason. A dumb reason to have a kid is to get married, which is what we did. My parents said we couldn't see each other anymore, so we proceeded to force them to let us get married. We loved our son, but both agree that waiting would have been the better thing to do.
Kids are going to fight, no matter what you do. Which is why I only had one. I knew who did and didn't have to play the blame game or listen to "will you stop touching me!" or "he took my cookie!!" =)
If you want another and feel like you can give it the attention and love, then go for it.
