Well, some deities considered them tasty  , who are we to object?

This has been stated a couple times but I'll just reiterate it. To me, the choice of having kids was because it's a life experience that I wanted to have. I wanted to know what it's like, to experience the shitty times where he didn't want to sleep consistently, to the great times where he just runs up and hugs me for no reason and asks me to play with him because he loves my company. It's a different kind of relationship than I've ever had before because you're so invested. I have spent countless nights with little sleep, every second of every day I have this little person I have to keep in my mind and watch over. By the end, I think it's almost impossible to not love the little guy with all your heart because you've put so much time and effort in it would be irrational to not.



...

All humans have some instincts which tell them: "You should bear new humans to avoid your extinction". And that is the main reason, I think.
But some children are really nice, and when you look at them you think: "He will be a great person who will make the world better." So that is the reason why I am going to have children some days - to make the world better by giving it a good person.



I don't want to have children in this terrible world, it is too huge of responsibility and too many things can go wrong. If you have children and you are a decent human being, the moment you have them you stop living for yourself which sucks in my book, but I have to admit that having children has its advantages in certain scenarios.

I am afraid when I have my children, I'll be very nervous about them, no matter if it's a boy or a girl. Just imagine - they are going out from your house and you fill nervous. How long will I stand that?

So I'm a complete DINK (Dual Income, No Kid) and it's pretty great. My brother has two kids and my sister has five, it's a struggle for both of them. It's pretty amazing knowing we have a savings account and can handle emergencies or go on vacations on a whim. My wife and I are both pretty thankful for that and have no plans to have children even though we've been together for more than 15 years. My brother and sister both have all sorts of worries and a long weekend is a rarity for them. My sister has her fist kid turn 18 this year and another 16 so now she has to worry about college *and* cars. I imagine not having kids has prevented A LOT of stress.

That all said, kids are a nice cure for Wednesday boredom. The Wife and I love each other and have a good time, but at least kids keep things interesting?

We've never had a pet together (I grew up on a farm with a silly amount of dogs and cats), that will change in about a month. The Wife will have to get use to having _at least_ a cat so that should be fun and _almost_ like a kid.

Does that make me a DIK?

But on another note, I think many people are happier with kids than they would be without them, even given the financial struggle that it might induce. Oddly enough for me, having a kid is what gave me the motivation to get my shit together, and I'm perhaps in a better financial situation with my kid than I would be without.



To learn from your mistakes and passing knowledge down to your childrenin theory making them a better person, hoping they will some how make a difference, plus kids also help you to grow more too, (sometimes) you become less selfish and put them first



My newborn twins caused me to play my Nintendo Switch a lot more since I don't really have much time to go into the basement to play my PC or PS4. So there's that! Nintendo benefits from my procreation!



To have them play games I don't want to play and then tell me how they are.
