    How many kids are better for an ideal couple?

    I would consider having three kids are better. It is ideal to have 2 girl and 1 boy

    What would you think?

    What would you consider the ideal couple? Kids are a lot of work and they cost a lot of money. There are numerous factors that have to be considered before a couple can consider bringing kids into the picture.

    congratulations!!!!you are in love!!! if you are thinking of having kids it is better to wait some time. under the spell of being in love everything is perfect. Take your time to enjoy your relationship.
    Having kids is not only demanding in financial matters but also in psychological one. The best way to see if you are ready for having kids, take care friend's kids for one weekend. You will have a little glance of it. Remember kids will grow up, so you have to keep in mind that too...they will become teenagers someday...and they will reflect the best and the worst of you one day...

    Due to fast increase of population, I think 1 is better - boy or girl, any of them...otherwise 2 - a boy and a girl...never more than 2

    Why are three kids better than one or two? More to support you later in life? :)


    Both of my brothers have two kids and they seem to be doing just fine.

    Nobody can tell you what is best for you, everybody's circumstances are different. But things to consider are:

    Time - kids will take up most of your life, the more you have the more time you will spend on/with them. If you are both happy with that idea that would indicate two or more kids.
    Money - this one is simple, more kids = more money - for a long long time. People are finding it harder all the time to buy a house so your kids might be with you into their 30s, and they will always be looking for money.
    Your Partner - does he/she want the same as you? Have you talked it through properly? It is not fair on the kids to bring them into the world if they are not 100% wanted by both parents, resentments can surface in later years.
    Space - have you got room for the kids you want or can you afford to move to a bigger place and do you want to move? If you are in a city centre apartment living the good life close to bars and clubs etc it will be a major upheaval to move to the suburbs and join the lawn-mowing set.
    More than 2 - most things in society are geared towards having two kids. Holidays, flights, restaurants, hotels etc etc all cater for 2+2 as a standard unit and more kids are a lot more expensive to accommodate.
    Kids happiness - single kids nearly always wish they had a brother or sister especially if all their friends do. On the other hand kids from larger families often wish they had the things a single kid gets provided for them but on the whole kids are generally happier when they have siblings, particularly if they live in remote areas with no other company close by.

    I have three myself and while it has been hard work and very expensive (still is!) the good far outweighs the bad for me.

    2 kids in total is ideal. After that, it just depends on how much money you're willing to spend.

    I would prefer 3 too with a combination of girls and boys. It is better than having just two and saves from the burden of too many.

    I think it all boils down to whether you are able to give them a good life ahead or not :) Have as many as you're able and willing to do their laundry, fix their messes, pay for their colleges etc

    its good to have a supporting brother, so definitely 2 would be my opinion, rather if one would like to have a girl, then its not bad.
