I don't think it's selfish. However, I don't think I would've been able to have just one child. I love that my kids play together and that they will (hopefully) have each other after dh and I are gone.

No I am not going to have another child just to make my other child happy so she can have a playmate.

No. Procreating is not an obligation, it's a way to live and love in a way that suits your family. That's how I see it anyway.

What?  Of course not.  What is selfish is having children you can't afford to provide a good life for in the first place.
