  • Probably for the same reason some women only want one baby, just a personal preference.

  • Why do some want 20 kids? Why do some women, like me, want only 1? It is a personal preference. And I am sorry, but wanting another baby for you because your son is a daddy's boy is NOT a reason to have another one.

  • Seems like an odd question to ask a bunch of women anyway I imagine the reasons vary depending on the man. Might be financial, might be preference...

  • Did you have trouble getting pregnant or any health scares during pregnancy or delivery? I know people that decide not to have more kids because they were worried about what would happen with the next pregnancy.

  • For my husband it is financial for sure. We are in the middle of lowering a child support payment that has been taking half of every paycheck for about 6 years now. He is always worried about the money side of things. I always get the same thing from him, "IF we get this chld support worked out, IF we can get into a house, IF we can get a better car, IF we have some extra money in the bank, THEN MAYBE we can try for another one....but it's a big IF!" We have always found a way to provide for our other 2 children and I know we would find a way to take care of baby #3, but I do understand where he is coming from. Men have a need to be feel that they are giving the best financial care for their family. Alot of men are scared that having more children will take away from their ability to do this.

  • Maybe it has to do with financial issues. He may be scared that he cannot provide for another child as well as he would like to.
