    Now with both of my sisters-in-law expecting, family members have jokingly said "now it's your turn!" ...ha if only they knew!

    This has led me to think about whether or not down the road I will want to have children of my own, whether adopted or from a surrogate mother. I like to think I'd be a great father and could give an adopted child opportunities he/she otherwise wouldn't have.

    so...do you eventually want children? how would you feel about raising them in a gay household?

    I think as long as the children are raised in a tolerant area it could be great...

    Hell no, all they do is slow you down and cost HUGE money. However, it makes me sad that I won't pass on my genes.

    umm... i glad the sole point of having children is to pass on your genes... a great trade-off for tall the money you waste on them and time you drain from your life... icon_rolleyes.gif

    I wish I wanted kids, but I've not ever really. I do have a great gay couple who is rasising the best little boi. They are totally suited for it.

    I am very animal in nature when it comes down to reproduction and I believe it is an insult to my father who spent so many years of lying to mother in order to produce me to not pass our genes down.

    I want to pass my genes on and raise that child to be as successful and happy as I can.

    One day my boyfriend said, wow we're doing so well. Kind of makes you think without kids it could always be like this.

    I very quickly nipped the topic in the bud. I will have children if I can help and considering the fact that he is his father's only child also I expect him to do the same.

    My only issue, I hate babies.
    I wish my child could pop out at five years old.

    and I am afraid of the descrimination they may face, but we'll deal with it.

    Probably. Unless my life situation makes it too difficult to be a good parent.

    My brother and sister-in-law are unable to have children, and it's looking less and less likely they'll decide to adopt. I know my folks want grand kids, though they've never put any direct pressure on either of us. I feel bad not being able to give them that joy, and it's strange knowing your family is just going to end after the last of us dies. But that's not enough of a reason. I'd only have kids if I knew I could provide a good home and give them what they need to succeed and be happy. I'm just not there.

    That said, I know of some gay couples who are raising kids, and many of them are amazing parents who seem happy taking on the challenges. More power to them.

    I think being a father would be fantastic. I believe I would be a good Dad...
    The reality is, I need to have a different emphasis if something like that were to ever become reality.

    Right, what you said. icon_rolleyes.gif We have different priorities and life goals, and I'm not going to apologize for mine.

    Get over yourself.

    I'm sure having kids is a life changing, life enhancing, unique and soulful experience. I've heard it changes your definition of "love" and provides a welcome change from always thinking of "me, me me".

    Still, I do not want kids. The buggers cost a lot, make lots of noise, and they smell.
