How many kids is too many for one couple?

A friend of mine (35) and his wife (33) have 4 and are eager for their fifth. Does that seem like too many?

in my view one kid is already far too many

Not at all. We had 7 and are thankful for every one of them. The best part is they all get along and love each other. Yes, money was tight but we had a ball raising them.

@MsSwan thats partially my point.

2/3 is a good amount.

Starting at 20 to 30 yrs of age.

I kind of feel bad for the multiples though. Can't give them that one on one attention.

@Umile 2/3 of a kid? 😂
Umile · 41-45, F
@Gumba1000 lol. 2 or 3. Not 2 out of 3.
Whats too many ?

As long as you have the time, thr love, the attention, the space and the emotional and financial means to support the children you have .....its all good.

In saying that tho - there are some that should never have any .

@OogieBoogie My parents came from families of nine and six🙂 Still thats harder to do in the 21st century
@bookerdana my brother in law came from a family of 16. And they are all close and a lovely family .

It will be harder to afford children .
I think they might become an elitist thing.
Give it another 150 years and only thr 1%ers will be having them , and thr rest will all be a workforce that never knows retirement .

Their choice

The number they can have and still afford to give a good life to. I feel so sorry for some kids you see having to share so much that nothing ever feels like theirs.

I would say that one or two kids would be my limit.
