How do I know for sure?

As someone who goes back and forth on the issue of motherhood, I'm seeking input. Does anyone know for sure whether or not they want to have kids at any stage in life any more? Is it possible to know for sure, given how many options we have as women these days? If so, what does it take to have that kind of certainty? Please advise!

I can tell you that initially my wife did not want children. There were some arguments about it. Now that we have a little one, she is really glad about it.


I honestly can't tell you when someone is ready. Obviously, women are having children later and later in life because of career, divorce, etc. I really can't imagine life without our son--he's such a joy.


When you're ready, you'll know, you know?
