Quoting Devil Duckie:" except biologically speaking, Children are meant to replace you in the gene pool, not over flow the ... [snip!] ... go off on why I'm having a 3rd. My SIL will not be having kids. We discussed this with her. This baby will be her replacement. "
Seriously? And if she changes her mind or gets pregnant, then what?
If you were seriously
concerned with overpop you'd stop at one & sacrifice for the greater good of our future & help
with downsizing rather than maximizing your procreating potential & preaching to others how many children they should have & what not. At the very least you'd adopt a child that was already here instead of getting pregnant each time.
By your logic I get to have at least 5 because there is 2 for Dh & myself, one for his dad who died & his parents only had 1 kid...so they have an extra unused "replacement kid"we can pick up, one from my sis who can't have kids & one from Dh's step sister since she's hit menopause now without ever marrying or having children. Oh - also Dh has an uncle with no kids - so one for him & one that died in childhood, so one for him too - whoohooo I get SEVEN!!! Do I need their permission first before I have their replacement kids, I mean at leas the living ones? How does this work?
