Whether you've chosen to have children or live child-free, how and when did you (or will you) reach this decision? If you're in a relationship, did you (or will you) decide separately or together?
i got knocked up at 15. i didn't really have a chance to consider my position. the irony is that i would have been childfree if not for the children, and i would have missed out on the best parts of my life. not that i am knocking anyone else's choice to be childfree, i just would not have considered it because, as a teenager ultimately i was a selfish little brat. children definitely tempered that in me (to a certain extent. touch my white chedder popcorn and i will pop YOU one) and made me much more patient, loving, caring, responsible, etc. and once they get out of the leaky, larval, disgusting stage they are pretty fun too.
