    And then DIE?! And leave them to cope in the world without you? Egads!! No! I want everything to tie up nicely when I go and not have to worry if my children have cleaned their ears and brushed their teeth two weeks after im gone. No. I can't even handle that thought. And I have...

    ...but My Boyfriend Does

    H ey so I'm really kind of in need of some perspective/advice. Basically, I met this guy and we got involved recently. I have never felt so compatible with anyone – from the most profound things like what we value in life, and they way we relate to people, to the smallest...

    I Feel Abnormal

    I come from a very traditional, loving family and I recently opened up to my mom and dad that my fiance has two children from two difficult women out of relationships that did not end well. As a result, he does not play the role of an active father and I believe him when he says...

    Im 17 and decided I want to adopt a toddler,

    some people say Im too young for this desicion, but I think girls my age already have kids so I can decide. Its not like Im adopting now, if I change maybe I will have children of my own, but I doubt it.

    I personally don't. I don't feel like I'd enjoy

    raising kids. The thought of changing diapers is pretty repulsive, and I don't think I'd make a good mother; I don't think I would be as doting or loving as a proverbial "good mother." Plus, the pain of childbirth is just too much to think about; I know mothers say you forget...

    Just Not Sure

    Well, I am 22 and I am not sure if I want kids.  I just feel so pressured into "wanting" to have kids, that I just feel that much more unsure.  At this point in my life, I just can't see having kids.  I don't know if this is because I am still young, or...

    My wife keeps changing her mind about wanting

    kids. She knows I would like to but she is the busiest person we know and she feels that kids would change her life too drastically. I know she would be a great mom but I also know that it would be very hard for her to give up her lifestyle and she might regret it. It's kind...

    At one point a few years ago I really wanted

    too, but recently I have been thinking, and with the current state of this world I am not sure if it would be wise to bring a new life into this world .... if it they would suffer and their life be short
