  • Yes, but only if he didn´t want children, either... and I would have that conversation before getting married. (I´ve known cases when éach of the spouses thought their position "was understood")

  • Marrige doesn't mean kids - marriage means you want to stay with your soulmate.

  • Only to a person who didn't want to have kids. I knew someone once who with her husband decided that they didn't want kids at all. Which is kind of funny since their favorite pasttime was going to Disneyland every year--on season passes.

  • Of course. Marriage is about a commitment to another person, not a promise to breed.

  • yes, i'd still get married. i've always been a fan of romance. even if i didn't want kids, i'd still want the beautiful white wedding. maybe i'd want the wedding more than the marriage though. =P

  • Yes. Although i plan on having children ( im TTC now) i think that its when you find that special someone who you dont wanna licfe without and you love with all of your heart, and want to be one with them, and many more things, that is why you get married. Not for the sake of having children. I think that you can be a family without children, but i also thing children are a blessing. i know a few people who are married who do nt want kids.
