Hi all, we have one kid and are debating about the second one. Is there anyone who regrets not having a second kid? And otherwise?

    Second kid is one of the best decisions you can make especially for your first kid. Having a sibling is invaluable and a source of a lifetime of support for your first kid. Family is forever and is the strongest bond you can create

    Definitely have it, and have it soon after the first one. Siblings will always be there for each other

      This. I was the only kid and I definitely missed having a sibling. And miss now as well.

      I have 2 kids. They get along well with fights and kisses

      If you just have 1, you will regret it years from now. Also don't have too many years of gap. 2 to 4 max.

    1 kid allows you to still have a life, 2 kids means your life is watching them. if you and partner have a good relationship, stable income, and really want a 2nd kid, go for it. If you're concerned about retirement, maintaining relationship, consider only having 1. my parents fought about money, about us, and had no life basically until I left the house. Their unhappiness wasn't worth it for me to have a sibling. plus I'm not close with my sibling.

    Some younger people are not understanding a very subtle fact. If you have 2 kids , they look after one another leaving a lot of time free for you. Also if they are born close together, handling one takes care of the other also. So 2 kids close together is a good idea

      Doesn’t work like that any more. Two kids means you have to keep them both entertained and prevent them from fighting.

      Me and my sibling spend a lot of time together , and that took off quite some load off our parents , but yes exceptions might exist. We are two years apart

      Not what Mrs. Manson said. She should have stopped at Marilyn and Charles would not have disgraced the family.

    Only children grow up to be the worst adults

      Of course only children grow up to be the worst adults. Poodles grow up to be the worst dogs. Not sure what your point is.

    Just keep buying lottery tickets once you have 2 or more kids. You will need it for the college tuition

    My wife thinks it's going to be painful again. She does not wanna be mommy ever - again. We have 1. I wanted 2.

    How old is the first child? It's hard to have two kids under the age of two. If the first child is older than that it's usually better.

    My one kid ended up being twins. Two is fine. Make sure your partner is down for it, too.
