What Does Being "Ready" For Children Mean?


In our recent Ask The Readers Free-For-All, a Simple Marriage reader, Kate, proposed this question:

My partner and I are looking at what it means to be “ready for children.” We discussed financial goals, being comfortable with each other as partners, maybe even getting therapy for ourselves individually (some anxiety and depression issues), and understanding our philosophy of child rearing and parenting, and what morals we want to pass on. Have you ever discussed this on your blog? Where would you start?

Since Simple Marriage has thousands of readers in various stages of marriage and relationship, let’s open this up to you. There is a discussion starting in the Simple Marriage Community where you can weigh in with your thoughts.

To all you parents out there (and to all you future parents out there) – what say you?
