If you had to choose, would you rather have a life with marriage (a lifelong mate) and no children or a life with children, but never have romantic love?
Which is more important to you?
At this point I would take either. *spinster wails and cries uncontrollably*
Very tough question.
I’m a woman believes that the romantic relationship between parents is just as important as the parental relationship and needs to be nurtured and not tossed aside once kids come. Since I don’t have children I would have to say a husband is more important.
I definitely want children but for me I don’t want them without a loving relationship, preferably a marriage. I’m so very happy right now and I want kids to enhance that. But kids grow up and live their own lives. Hell, what if I can’t pregnant. I don’t want to choose, I want both.
Easy for me. Marriage no children
Same here. I definitely want to be married. Eh…on kids, but I want a lifelong mate in my life.
Easy for me as well. No kids…give me the lifelong romantic love!
I choose marriage. I think children are a gift to a marriage. They aren’t a gift to give to myself. I would not want to purposely have a kid outside of a loving marriage.
I was willing to go without ever having children if I didn’t get married. If I didn’t have a child of my own I always knew I’d have some children in my life.
I’m in the minority. I say children over a mate.
I’d rather be married, if I had to choose.
I guess at the point I’m at in life now, I’d choose marriage. I want kids too but they aren’t guaranteed..
Marriage with no children. And this is coming from a newly married woman with a seven-year old.
well since I have a child I would have to say children and no marriage. I wouldn’t trade my princess for anything in the world.
Now if I didn’t have her then I would probably say marriage
Marriage… Hands down! I do want children, very much, but I want to share that joy WITH someone…who is my husband. So, while I would always long for a family consisting of at least one child, I could be very happy…even content, mostly…with a loving husband to hold and reassure me when that longing gets the best of me.
I would have to go with a life with children but no romantic love. I can’t imgaine life without my daughter and I I can’t imagine marriage without having at least one child. I would even adopt/foster.
I can’t choose! We were married for 6 years before we had LG and those were truly some of the best days of my life and the days since she’s been in our life have been equally awesome. *Puts self in timeout for failure to participate*
Definitely marriage. I’m a single parent and love my kids but if I had to chose it would be marriage.
When I was young and had the “choice”, I always said that I didn’t want children. Now that I am older and the “choice” is slowly dwindling away, I do think about what it would be like to be a mother. However, realistically, I think I will be childless so being found by the mate God has for me is what I want and sometimes need.
I’d pick marriage as well. I’d rather share the joy of a child with a husband.
Lifelong mate with no kids. This is my life and I honestly can’t see it any other way. Motherhood, childbirth & pregnancy scares me.
