My brother asked me again whether I ever plan to have kids; I'm not sure why.  It got me thinking.

A third or so of my female friends are sure they don't want children.  My life isn't that tidy.  My feelings about having children are pretty much the same as my feelings about renovating a house I'm living in.  I can imagine doing it.  I can even imagine it being a great thing to do.  However, I don't want to deal with that level of mess, hassle and commitment without a good, solid reason.

For me, "my biological clock is ticking" and "my DNA wants to replicate" are not good enough reasons.
