Why you should never ask someone, “When are you having kids?”
It’s none of your business.
Having children is a very big decision. It’s not one to be taken lightly. Ideally, people like to put adequate thought and planning into having children. Granted, it’s doesn’t always work out that way but my point is that it’s a huge responsibility! Not only is it a very important decision, it’s also a very personal one. One that only involves two people…the would-be parents. Wrestling with the decision is hard enough without having others pressure you or put in their two cents about how much more fulfilling life is with kids. Either way, it’s their decision, not yours. When they have kids, you will know. They will share that joy with you but until then, hang tight.
Kids aren’t for everybody.
