    I am 1 of 4 and Darling Husband is 1 of 2.

    We want 2 but we had a hard time with getting pregnant. We have both said if we end up only being able to have 1 we are ok with that.

    I am 1 of 7 and my fiance is 1 of 2. His ideal would be just two children and mine would be 3. I always tease him that the third may be a surprise. haha. We will see how we both feel when we get to that point.

    I have one sibling and Fiance has none. I want 3-4, though we’ll probably only have 2. I don’t think I’ll want to keep giving birth, plus, I’ll want each kid to have their own room, we’ll want to go out to dinner, travel and have them in extracirriculars. All that is expensive! And I don’t want to dive a mini van. But I want a big family. We’ll see 🙂

    I’m the youngest of 2. My husband is the oldest of 2. I’m pregnant with our first and would like 2 kids. I never envisioned more than that.

    I want 3-4 but Darling Husband wants 2-3

    I am one of 3

    and he is one of 4.


    Personally I loved having two siblings which is why i want more than 2.  I think he must have felt 4 was too many (although of course we love all his brothers) and also he thinks about the financial stress of having so many kids.

    I’m an only and Fiance has three siblings (one older brother, one younger brother, one younger sister; the younger two are like siblings to me). I would LOVE to have an only (I loved being an only), but we both agreed that two would be good. 

    FI’s brother and SIL are trying to convince us that one kid is enough. They’re in their mid 30s and have an 18 month old, and they’re super overwhelmed. I’m in my mid 20s, but I definitely think Fiance and I will be awesome parents. He tells me what a good mom I’ll be, which is weird, since I never wanted kids.

    I am an only child and want a huge family.  Darling Husband has a brother and thinks that 2 is ideal…that’s not going to work for me 😉 haha

    Darling Husband and I are both one of 2. I’m the eldest in my family and he’s the youngest in his.

    We will not be having children. 🙂
