Did you always know that you would have a family?

Most women that I've met say that they've always wanted children. I remember friends in school talking about their future husbands and kids.

  • No, until I met my DH, I didn't even think I wanted to get married! I was going to be alone and that's how I wanted it, and then he came along and it was game over! We were together for about a year before I finally gave in to what I'd been feeling and told him I wanted to have his babies. lol

  • No, I didn't want kids. I was happy with my husband and we were fine, and then I turned 25 and I just changed and decided I wanted a family.

  • When I was around 11 years old, one of our assignments in girl scouts were to picture who we would be as an adult. I always pictured myself in business suits, single and strong, living in a high rise apartment in a big city. Needlesstosay, I am happily married living in the burbs and a SAHM to 3 beautiful kids. Funny how life happens!

  • No.. I did not want children and I wasn't all that sure about marriage either.

    After my husband and I had been married a few years, I did develop the desire to have A child.. However after I had him(@ nearly 29), I never experienced "baby fever", I have never wanted/desired another child.. I am/was definitely a 1 child only woman.
