I'd only worry if your preference is greater than zero and his (her) preference is "none", or vice versa. Personally, years ago, I would've said "4" and my [late] wife would've said "1 or 2". Ultimately, circumstances and God gave us "2". They are, of course, they are the greatest "2" on the earth!

(quote) Yenne-970772 said: Hi Danielle,

I don't know if this will answer your question but one thing is clear in my mind. That it is not for me alone to decide the number of children that I would have. It is between me, my spouse and God. For this reason, I answered "no ideal number" because I want to be open to having the number of children that God wants me and my future spouse to have based on a prayerful discernment of God's will for our family.

Having said that, I am praying to God to 'hurry up' in giving me my future spouse so that I could have the children that he wants me to have. Of course, I am kidding. While I pray and work on it, I leave everything to God's loving providence.

Have a great day!

I agree with Yenne. I answer "don't have an ideal" because a lot will depend on my future wife and the circumstances of the marriage. The issue of contraception is important, but that is addressed elsewhere in the profile.

I'd say the more children, the stronger commitment you have with your partner. two cents

AMEN Joan!
NFP is not "Catholic birth control", it's for cases of extreme necessity and a granted practice with priest's permission. "I don't care"/"God's will be done" is definitely the most acceptable answer to me. : )

I don't think it has to match up but openness to children is important to me. They have to want at least two cause I have two. :)

I used to always say I wanted 13 children -- mostly to mean that I was open to as many children as God would bless me with -- but God only granted me 6, mostly I think because the ex 'cheated' on the rules of nfp (as well as all the other rules of a monogamous relationship) -- so I guess to get 'my 13' I should be looking for someone with 7, right? 6 + 7 = 13 !! tongue lovestruck! wink
