Cupid’s Advice:

The decision to have children is one of the most important you will ever make with your significant other. How many you choose to have is entirely up to you, but you should take a few key factors into consideration before you make any plans. Cupid has some tips:

1. Financial stability: You would love to have a house full of kids, but financially you might not be able to support them. Kids need more than just love. You need to be able to provide them with food, clothing and shelter. Trying for a third and fourth child when you can only afford one or two would not only be unfair to you, but to the children you’re bringing into the world.

2. Compromise: Your partner might want four kids while you’re only comfortable with two at the most. You and your significant other will have to meet in the middle and figure out what the both of you will be OK with.

3. The size of a home: You and your honey will need to determine if your home is big enough for the amount of children you want. Will you need to move in order to accommodate the expansion of your family? Can you afford a bigger house? These questions need to be answered before you decide to have children together.
