Check out our funny replies when people ask when you're having kids

All of a sudden at around 28, you will start getting asked the dreaded question, “When are you going to have children?” Really, your fertility isn’t anyone’s business but your own, so people should really stop asking.

Not everyone has always longed to have a baby, some folks just know that family life is not a path they want to go down. Committing the next 18 years of your life to move in with someone you don’t even know is a pretty big and scary commitment. Parenting is not for the faint of heart, there are some pretty challenging moments raising children.

When people ask the kid question, a few are just trying to make conversation and a lot of folks still think in the traditional paradigm where everyone of a certain age should settle down, have kids and buy a house. The world has changed, people are no longer living the same cookie cutter existence and we have all realized there are many different ways to live.
