WYR come from a large family or a small family?

I come from a large family. I haven't even met my half brothers and sisters.

  • I come from a very large family, I have relatives in 7 different states and 4 different countries. Just within my home state I have my folks, 5 of my 6 brothers, my sister, my husband's parents and 4 of his 6 brothers, and his sister, 27 cousins, 6 aunts and 5 uncles (I'm not including my many nieces and nephews). I'm close with all of my family, the ones I don't see often I talk to on the phone and online. I couldn't imagine not being in a big family; my husband and I will soon have our 5th child. I know he wants a couple more after this one, I'm still undecided.

    so i really just grew up with my brother an my parents.. it was kinda boring haha.. soo i like them a little big but not HUGE.. MAYBE 4 kids at the most.. which is what our family is getting to.

  • My family is large and dysfunctional, lol. My mom has 3 kids (me and my sisters), and my dad has 6 kids (4 girls, 2 boys). I have only met one brother, and 1 or 2 sisters (it's terrible that I can't remember). I talk to my younger brother, that I haven't met, on FB and texts. I'd rather come from a smaller family, preferably from the same parents. I don't mind, but it'd be easier to keep track of! My dad needs to wrap it UP.

  • i come from a large family. my dad has 7 children by 3 women. i have 2 half brothers,and 1 half sister. then i have 1 brother and 2 sisters. i've only met one of my half brothers one time when i was really young. my extended family is huge. i don't like having a huge family. it's too much drama.

  • I come from a really small family. I've always wanted a huge family. I definitely wish I came from a large family.

  • I am an only child, so I would love to have come from a larger family. When I was younger, it never mattered. But now that I'm older and my parents are older I am all alone to care for them and I will be alone when they're gone. Definitely larger.

  • I have one brother and I'm comfortable with that. So far I only have one child. DH was an only child and he wants more kids. I'm on the fence on that one.
