So, the abiding answer from those of you who have bothered to actually try to answer the question is that deciding to have a child is not based on logic or rationality.

Thanks for your honesty.

Glad your pre-existing beliefs were bolstered. You can report back to your homies for a debriefing.

I am fairly certain that everything you've just posted was based on your own preexisting beliefs about these types of questions, and the irony of that is not lost on me.

No, not really.

You could have found a child-free forum and asked the same question and gotten much much more detailed answers.

Instead you chose a forum for parents who gather to ask parenting questions of each other looking for insight. Note: I distinctly don't consider this a pro-parenting advocacy forum.

That says a lot about your character and intentions.

If I could back in time and had the choice, I would have advised my mother not to have me. It isn't logical or rational, like all things regarding children.

What kind of answers would I receive from "child free" people? I want answers from people with actual experience. Who better than parents?

What I didn't expect was a bunch of judgemental butthurt from people like yourself.

So, answer the question: Is it logical or rational.

The butthurt word! I knew it was coming!

Your question was answered. It's not always logical or rational. Many things are that way. Hope that makes life more livable.

Child free advocates are experts on the illogical and irrational reasons people have children and will explain it to you all day long.

Well, when you substitute gratuitous personal attacks for actual answers to legitimate questions, what can you expect?

Not rational or logical. Thank you.

What's your reason? Is it emotional? Biological? Spiritual?

Not passing judgement. Just want to know others' thoughts on the subject.
Mine was all the above.
