The Most Important Decision You Will Make: Partner, Children, Yes and-or No
Do you want children? Yes or no.
You will have to figure out, early in your life, whether, or not, you want to be a parent (or, if you are late in life, you will understand why I am writing this).
This one decision will take over your life. All the rest is reversible. The decision about children is not.
Whatever happened in your own family, that is what you will reproduce, good and bad, right and wrong, true and false, in your own family.
Nature has you covered on this. 50–50 will want-will-not-want (anything and-or everything). Will handle (or not) everything. Will reproduce (or not) anything.
