Realizing that I would not want to work 12-14 hours a day to support kids that I created, I chose not to have any kids. My time and money are now my own, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have heard people say that NOT having kids is selfish. Yet I wonder why people have children that they can barely feed or spend time with. Is it simply to have someone that will look after them when they get older? Any child willingly and knowingly brought into this world should not have to suffer to any degree because of the poor and unresolved circumstances of the mother and father.

To me, what ya’ll are saying is B.S. My family is very wealthy. We live in the biggest house in our neighborhood, which isn’t a ghetto. I have five sisters and one brother. To me that is plenty of kids. Also, give the poor people a little credit. They’re not stupid. They’re still human. They’ve figured out that when you have sex you get a baby. My parents also know this – they just choose to have a big family. After all, the more the merrier.

Does anyone know why lower-income families often seem to have larger numbers of children than their more affluent counterparts? To qualify this, I’ve known couples who’ve started off ‘rich’ or ‘poor’ before they started having children. Any ideas?
