What's with desiring children anyway? I really struggle to understand why anyone wants to have children. What does it accomplish? What does it prove? What the hell does it matter?

As for me.. One, I don't like this world we live in. I wouldn't want my own flesh and blood dealing with the same stupid bullshit I've gone through. Two, I don't want to commit the time and effort. It's 18+ years of having to take care of someone you're not even sure you're going to like and get along with. Which brings me to number three, who's to say what you'll end up with if you have a child?

As in, I know of a great loving Christian family who are the few I've ever seen that are shining pillars of society.. and their oldest son is mentally handicapped, they forever have to take care of him for rest of his/their lives.. Despite their overwhelming love and whatnot, even they in their weaker moments admit that it's hard, really hard and trying, to deal with such a burden.

And on another note altogether; I'm selfish. If I've finally found a woman to have and to love and to cherish.. I don't want anything bogarting our time together. If I've just found this awesome woman.. I'd much rather enjoy and cherish my time spent with her.. rather than spend the next 18+ years waiting in line for her attention.

Yeah, fuck all that noise. Yes, I realize I'm cynical, paranoid, etc.
