Would You Have Kids?

Imagine if you knew that the world was coming to an end in 10 years. But before the end, well let's just call it Armageddon, things are supposed to get increasingly worse. Politics, religion, commercialism, economic hardship, hatred, murder, deceit, etc. are magnified in the wrong direction 10x over what they are today. But the day after Armageddon, when all wickedness is gone and you've managed to make it through, the sun comes out of the sky in a way you've never seen it before and you're surrounded by the most beautiful and loving sights you've ever seen in your life. You've finally stepped into a new, wonderful world.

Okay. Do you have it? Did you imagine it?

Now here's the question.

Say you're married during that period of wickedness I described above, and have always wanted children - your very own family. Would you even bother having children and bringing them into that life of hate, crime and evil? Or would you pray that you make it through Armageddon and wait until the new world to have the family you've always wanted?

Great question... Its definitely something that I have struggled with for a long time...

I want a baby girl sooo bad... I would spoil the crap out of her, but I do not want to bring her into this sick world... It would almost be a selfish thing to bring them into this world, so I think I'm going to wait... But accidents do happen so it could happen before Armageddon.

I would wait...i agree with MJ that its basically selfish to at that point to bring a child into all that mess so I'd just have to hold out and focus until the new world....
