Let's face it, the decision to procreate is going to be one of the biggest events that you and your partner will ever have to make. Sure, it's a natural progression if you are very much in love with each other and want to make a home and a shared life together that would be enhanced even more by having children to share all of that harmony. But are you really sure?
To have or not to have children is one of the most important issues that anyone should ask to themselves. Just remember, you will never give less of a f#ck than when you are a child.
Kids are like little rock-stars who don't need drugs and alcohol when they trash the place and defecate on themselves, it's just who they are.
So before you take that step, have a good look at what you are letting yourself into. Be afraid.
