1. Do you (or if you have them, did you) want children?
I do want children.
2. In reference to 1: why or why not?
It's sort of something I've always wanted even growing up that I've wanted children, to become a mother. Obviously I'm not ready to have children now, but somewhere down the line in my life I would love to have them. There's something I can't explain about it, something that I can't articulate in words even to myself, but it's just this feeling, this urge to experience motherhood; to have a piece of me into the world as part of the next generation. I know, this probably makes no sense and most are going "bzuh?!" but as I said, it's hard to describe. It's just this feeling that I can't shake off. Though funny thing, I'm not fond of babies as much as I adore little kids, like really adore to a point of going "awww!"
3. How sure are you or were you of that choice? Why or why not?
Absolutely and positively sure.
4. Could you be or could you have been persuaded otherwise (e.g., if your partner(s) felt differently)? Why or why not?
This depends on the relationship between the person I'm with. Obviously if my significant other is indifferent or unwilling to accept the possibility of having children in the future I will have to weigh out the choices and other possibilities. It's not that I'm going to choose having kids over having a lovelife, because that's not the issue. The issue remains being on a stable, common ground on having children somewhere down the line; people's minds change, so it all depends on the situation at hand. But I still remain firm that someday I will have children of my own, though I think that going into a relationship with someone you should discuss this before going any further (i.e. having a future together, settling down and having a family and so forth), especially if you're serious in that relationship.
5. Did anyone ever try to persuade you otherwise? If so, tell us a bit about it.
Not to my knowledge, though relationships for me haven't been that deep into the conversation so, heh.
And before I forget, there's a Matt/Mohinder friending meme. Much love for MoMatt and M3, join in the fun!
