Financially Stable

Posted by   + Show Post

Should you be financially stable before you have children?  This is a question that not necessarily pertains to my circumstances as I have 3 children, ages 8, 6 and 3.  Someone on another forum made the statement that people should be financially stable before deciding to bring children into the world.  I am curious what other people think on this topic.

Some children are not planned so in that type of situation the mother has no choice as to whether or not she is financially stable.  I feel financial security would be the ideal circumstance to bring a child into however some people would never know the joys of parenthood if they wait until they have that stability.  What do you ladies think?

in a perfect world yes, but in reality no one is ever stable enough or ready enough for kids.

Ideally I would have been in a totally different situation before having children. But, what has happened happened. So ehh.
