Since I have a boy and I'm having a girl I should be done having kids. . .And according to my family I should get "fixed"! I didn't realize that there was a rule that you could only have one kid of each gender. . .They look at me like I'm crazy when I say I want atleast 3 kids. I mean come on people I'm only 21 don't you think that's a little young to be getting "fixed" if you want more kids!?!?!?

 also, what if something happened to your s/o...you got remarried and wanted another child...21 is definately way to young...I don't want anymore kids either, but at 19 I just couldn't justify getting fixed

My father said the same thing to me after I had my son. I told him to eff off and let me live my life the way i want to live it.

I dont know where you live but in MD they will not "fix" you unless you are 27.  I have two boys and I dont want anymore but they wont touch me.  When I turn 26 I can write a letter requesting it be done but he can deny it.  I am only 24 and my youngest is 22 months old but I am definitely done but they say I am too young.

 My dh got fixed at 21. We were done. Not because we had one of each because we knew we could not afford to have more. We were living with my parents and on PA.

That's ridiculous. No one should be able to tell you or anyone how many kids you should have that is your decision.

If you can afford them and aren't on PA I don't see why it's any of anyone else's business.
