Default Guys telling guys to have babies?

Does anyone do this in your circle of friends? Usually it seems to always be a mother or other female friend who asks about babies. I just have to giggle with the s.o.'s married friends when they bring it up and we give each other the "hahaha dude!" eye. I much prefer the males taunting tactics as oppose to e general female "oh for shame you havent bred yet tude'"

We just had another haha moment looking at a friends baby pictures and talking about how to organize them. He wants to have kids but wants a few more years into his career to have the income to support them as he would like and I have to finish school. He joked: "Are you trying to make my cougar baby crazy or what!" and started laughing. (not baby crazy as we are actually planning out a timeline. lol) The friends wife said I would be crazy not want babies because we would make such cute ones. lol

I wasn't going to be the first one to say this, but now that you put it out there................I am so glad my boys are here, but it is keeping me from getting a divorce. I am stuck in a hellish marriage because I have kids.

Default happened to me..

A high school buddy who I just got back in contact with last year told me I am "running out of time" (at 35) and i should be a father because it is "right." He has one, a five year old and is getting divorced after after a 5 year marriage. They are fighting over custody, and are bitter enemies now. Point to this is I thanked him for his advice and left it at that. I feel for his situation.

In a broad observation, people get surprised I never married or had kids.

I'm sure I'll make "The Great Mistake" At some point (My teasing term for marriage) but I'm in no rush.

EVERYONE (Guys) I know who have been married over a year (Even those in relatively happy marriages) say basically the same thing you said...

"I love my kids, BUT...."

Wow...what do you people act like in the face of company? The people I know seem rather happy with the situation except when someone poops his pants...then they call the wife. LOL

Those "have em" guys are all really close with all family members though. (not just the wife and kids)

That is one reason I never wanted kids.

I want the man, not the babies he left behind.

Based on this thread I have concluded that the human race is doomed.
