Do you feel that you have a religious/spiritual obligation to have children?

If so, why?

  • Religion never playeda factor in my decision to have kids. And I'm a Catholic. So there! ;-)

  • Yes, because that is my calling.
    Some get called into the ministry, my calling was the sacrament of marriage. I always knew that someday I would have children.

  • No. I have known Catholic people who have like 10 kids and they shop at the food bank and live in squalor all because they think it's their 'duty' to have as many kids for the lord as they can.

  • adnilm... well, I'm glad THEY can afford the kids they have, but anyone who can't afford to have 10 kids- regardless of religious affiliation- but does so anyway because they feel the need to create more god-slaves is a nutter.

  • Nope! I feel that my obligation to my kids it to raise them properly by teaching them respect of others, our goverment and laws, and most importantly themselves. also to teach them with all my knowledge and to let others teach them their knowledge as well so they can succeed
