Love is the ONLY reason to have children, there are NO other benefits.
You will get absolutely NOTHING in return for all the time, energy, and money, that you will dump into them.
So if you want children, understand it will be a one way passion, a bottomless pit of care and support.
And if you can accept that, and still want children so that YOU CAN LOVE THEM.
They can be the greatest enjoyment in your life.
Some people are willing to make the sacrifices, others are not.
So if your doing it for THEM, I wish you every happiness, but if your doing it for YOU, then DON’T! They deserve better.
And being a parent is anything BUT a selfish endeavor.
