I've heard a variety of reasons, from environmental concerns to the vast number of children already in foster care.

Who are these people? I only have one, but feel to each his/her own. Many people think it's selfish to have only one. I feel that if you can afford to have more than one, go for it. I do get annoyed by women who really just "need to have a baby in their arms" so have 5 or 6, not showing much interest when they are no longer babies. Or people who know they can't afford to have more and continue to do so. That said, people's circumstances change, and what one was affordable may no longer be.

I don't.  I love having a sister and brother, and my kids love having a sister and brother.  Life would not be complete without them all!

Odd.. I think a sibling can be an absolute GIFT!


My sons are best friends. Granted theyre only 4 and 5, they literally do everything together.

I have one and have heard it's selfish of me to NOT have more. I like your version better, it'd get my in-laws out of my hair.
