For me fiances
Quoting libbybell: How many I can physically take care of and not be too stressed out, or burden others. How many I can comfortably afford.
I have one child, no plans for more.
Fiances, physical capability (both in conceiving and the demands of raising a child), health of parents and child. Also personal views on just how large or small the couple wants their family to be. We are sticking with one but if a by chance a second came along that would be wonderful too.
How many I could handle. I am stretched to my mental/emotional limit with just 2, so there is no way I would ever want more. Plus I just am so incredibly over babies. Just.. omg.. my son is 9 months old and I am so ready for him to just get up and start walking and talking so we can all DO things again and have fun as a family!
I think that finances and time is the biggest factors. I currently have 6 children and my SO wants another one. I am not sure that we have the money or the time to make sure that they all get the attention they deserve.
Finances here, too. Being able to support the child physically and financially.
