- Wedding: October 2014
I have created this thread because I’d like to know how you all do it 🙂
I have so many questions but I cannot even think of them all to ask! FI and I are getting married in October and are currently doing preparations with our priest. both of us completed a FOCUS quiz which helped indicate which areas of our relationship we need to concentrate on or communicate. For us, the main topic that came up was children and starting a family. I think the reason is because we haven’t really talked about it. We both want children but that’s as far as we have gone in regards to communication and decision making. My questions are: (I know money is a vital factor, but please answer if money wasn’t an issue)
how did you decide WHEN to TTC?
how did you decide HOW MANY children to have?
how did you decide who would stay home?
how did you decide who would do majority of the child rearing?
how did you decide on the use of discipline on your children?
how did you decide on how much your family/friends would interact with your children?
How did you factor in family time into a busy lifestyle?
If you could pick one thing, what is the most important thing you wanted to teach your child/children?
(if religious) how did you implement your beliefs into everyday home life?
I would appreciate as much input as possible. We don’t have children and are struggling with some of these discussion points. I’d love to hear how you have made choices regarding starting a family. If you can give me advice on questions I haven’t asked that would be great too. I’m sure there is so much more involved!!
FWIW We plan to TTC in June 2015 and we will both be 24.
thanks in advance 🙂
