How do you know when you’re ready to have kids with your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

Having a child with your partner is a life-changing event. Even though this journey is exciting, it may not be the right choice for you. Determining whether or not you and your significant other should have a baby is challenging. Here are three important things to consider:

1. Love: Love changes a lot about a person. It can also change what a person may do in their lives. If you are in a serious relationship and know that you’re both ready to settle down, having a child may be a good next step to take. If your mate wants to have a kid, but you’re still unsure, talk about it and give it some time. Making the decision to have a baby requires deep conversations and honesty.

2. Fertility: Fertility is obviously very important to have a child. To alleviate some potential stress, check your fertility status. To save yourself from lots of tears and trouble, both you and your partner should go to the doctor. It’s a smart safety precaution to take that will make your lives much easier!

3. Financial: As a serious couple questioning whether or not to have a baby, you should know each other’s financial situations. Babies are costly: diapers, formula, hospital bills, baby showers, clothes and more. If you can’t afford to have a child, develop a budget and open a savings account specifically for your child.
