    I agree with you, Innerspin. Some couple just assume that both want children only to find out later on that one does not want.

    I think it's a good idea, too, dashingscorpio. That way you'll know what the other person wants, his/her priorities in life and whether these match with ours. Voted up!

    I think so, too! One might just like to be surrounded with folks, siblings and relatives and the other don't. Better have it settled first.

    Agreed, Iburmaster. There's is no point in marrying somebody who doesn't share your goals, aims in life, interests, etc.

    I think so, too, Kelleyteam. I think if I am sick I will never have kids and don't marry. It's not fair to give another person a "burden" or a responsibility that he/she would have not chosen.

    These expectations, no matter how small or big, less or many, are really better talked before marriage. Like you said, simple, but could ruin a harmonious relationship.

    Exactly, Larry Wall. I have seen many couples around here who are married yet separated by work, distance, etc because the other doesn't want to. I don't see any point in that. They'd rather get divorced.
