I belive people have children for specific reasons. Some parents have children to up their status and to be able to show off. These children are merely a discussion point with firends and nothing more than a status symbol.
If you have children for the right reasons (only you know these reasons, but hopefully love features somewhere), I don't think the economy will play a huge part. Children needs lots of love and support and time.
The economy might push, but as a prent you will find ways and means to make it work.
