    was told by one of my friends after me saying "i will teach my kid so and so"

    "but you're gay, im jealous that you never have to think about kids or weddings"
    what the hell?

    my question to other guys here, are you the same with me that in future you will have kids and get married, my best friend after telling her what was said to me said she would have my kid, obviously not in that way

    Only if you marry me. icon_cool.gif

    I'd like to think one day I'd settle down and follow a traditional path. However this will be in the distant future.

    And forgive your friend, straight people say things about gay people out of complete ignorance quite often. It's not necessarily meant to hurt you, they probably don't even realize how their words are construed.

    I really would want kids and a monogmous husband sometime in the future...probably by 33ish so that if I started having kids then I could have 3 and get the last one out of the house before I'm too old and tired to have anyone depend on me completely.

    If I were 20 years younger, yeah, I'd probably want to have kids. But at age 42, that thought is long gone. The last thing I wanna do for retirement is finish raising a teenager.

    I have dogs. I don't need kids.

    I thought traditional marriage had to do with a dowry of goats and chickens.

    "traditional" marriage is pretty meaningless—the word has meant very different things at different times; the common theme being alas the idea of women as inferior or property.

    Very few of my straight friends would say they're in a "traditional" marriage. The idea of having marriage based on love is a modern innovation—and a good one.

    Gymfreak, if I was your age then marriage with kids would definitely be on the table. I think at my age I would be content with marriage. I have helped raise numerous nieces and nephews. I wish you the best! icon_biggrin.gif
