    My Fiance is the oldest of 8, and I have two sisters, and I love siblings! I’m shooting for 5. 🙂

    we ideally want 2– a girl and boy, of course =P but we will stop at 2, regardless of gender.

    i’m an ony child and Fiance has one older brother… i liked not having to share stuff when i was younger, but seeing my friends’ relationships with their siblings makes me want my kids to have that bond, too.

    I have one sister; Darling Husband has a sister and a brother.  He also has two kids, both college-aged.  Which frankly has been the main source of stress in our marriage so far…  I never really, really, wanted children, although I never really, really, didn’t want them either – it just didn’t matter to me all that much.  Now that I finally found the right guy (I’m 44, he’s 50) he was sweet enough to tell me that if I did want more kids that would be just fine with him – but I honestly don’t.  Just getting the two we have to the point where they can support themselves is going to be an exhausting experience.  My sister has an 18 month old, and I can absolutely see how that would be wonderful.  Possibly it would completely distract me from the existing problems, but that’s probably the wrong reason to have a baby!

    I already have a son that is 4 from a previous relationship and I love him to death. After  Fi and I get married we would like to have one of our own. We will probably start tying a few month or so after the wedding. I am pretty sure one more will fulfill me but if not I’m sure I could talk the other half into another one.

    I’d liek a lot, but my fiance only wants 2 or 3. I come from a huge family and love it, he comes from a small family, while he loves my huge family, he thinks it is impossible to afford a big family these days and therefor wants a smaller family.

    As of now, I think I’d like one girl and one boy, but I think three would also be a good number, as long as I get at least one girl!

    I’m starting to understand and appreciate Carl Sandberg’s sentiment: "A baby is God’s opinion that the world should go on."   However, I also believe that raising a child "takes a village" and much commitment and effort, which hopefully is a privileged task that I’ll be able to undertake one day with my husband! 

    To all the parents on weddingbee, I salute thee!

    I’d be happy with 1 healthy baby but if I could choose, I’d want a older boy and a younger girl.  Darling Husband wants it the other way around 🙂

    I would like four. Fiance wants three or four. He’s convinced they will all be girls which fills him with glee, and terrifies him at the same time. haha

    My husband said 12 but I told him no. 🙂

    I think 2 is a realistic number for us. I think it is kind of lonely for the kid to just have one (I have a younger brother and my husband has an older brother).

    I’m thinking 3 but I may go higher….have to see what an epidural is like…Or test out  those birth orgasms. J/K  We’ll take whatever God thinks we can handle.

    Darling Husband and I are both from families with three kids.  I loved having both a brother and a sister growing up.  My sister is now my closest friend in the world.  We lost our mother and I couldn’t imagine not having my sister and brother to lean on!  I hope I can have three kids and so does DH- but of course we’ll take whatever God gives us.
