    Are families getting bigger again?

    I have 6 children ranging in age from 18years to 18 months. I've met quite a few people lately that have 4+ children. Are large families popular again?

    Just this week I met a man who has ten children so he might agree that families are getting bigger again! smile

    Based on the statistics in Singapore, our government is hoping for larger families as the birth rates are declining.

    I have 4 brothers and 3 sisters but as for me, I am just having 2 kids. If one can afford to have bigger families, I do believe they will go for it.

    At least here in Portugal they are not, the average went bellow 2 children per couple and it tends to lower even more with this economic crisis...
