Getting Married

Do you want to marry when you grow older, or don't you? Why or why not?

I want to marry when I grow older. I think that marriage is a base to build a new family. Of course people can be a family with no marriage, but in my opinion the wedding will support true love. But there is still much time to be married.
E., girl, Poland

I want to get married in the future. I think the single life is not too cool, but it's my opinion. But to marry someone I have to know this person well and above all to love.
W., girl, Poland

Yes, I want to, of course. But first I will grow up and have a long relationship with my partner to be sure that we will be together for ever.
D., boy, Germany

I know, some years ago, It was old-fashioned to get married. But I think I will marry when I've found my true love ... And they lived happily ever after ... (Eeeeerrr ...)
S., girl, Germany

I don't want marry because I think when you get married, the love ends.
L., girl, Spain

I think when I grow older, I will get marry but only with a true love, because if you get married with a person who you don't feel comfortable with, that relationship will break. I think people don't have to look for LOVE because it appears when you least expect it. Love is just Love, but if you share it is WONDERFUL.
I., boy, Spain

For me the marriage isn´t very good idea, because the life with your boyfriend after that isn´t the same, there are more arguments, and being with him will be a routine, all day seeing him ... it´s a little stressing for me!

Having Children

Do you want to have children later when you have grown up? If so, why and how many? If not, why?

I'm still thinking about if I want children when I grow up or not. If so, I want one when I have a job, a nice husband and enough money to afford the child a good life. I think two are enough. I don't want a single one because I think it's easier for the parents and better for the child to grow up together, so you can learn to share and stuff like that.
S., girl, Germany

I like children and I can't imagine that I couldn't have children. In the future I want to have 4 boys.
W., girl, Poland

On the one hand, I would like to have children. They are cute. I would see them growing up, etc. On the other hand, you really have to take care of them and maybe it even affects your career opportunities! That would be bad!
S., girl, Germany

I want to have two children. The first one is a girl and she is named Alexandra. She has long dark hair and dark brown eyes. The other one is a boy and he is named Jacob. His hair is also dark but short. His eyes are brown.
C., girl, Denmark

I would like to have three children, one boy and two girls, but only when I grow and I find my true love (my husband), hahaha, and I have a good job!!
A., girl, Spain

 

Your Future Family

When you grow up, you will probably start your own family some day. What do you want it to be like?

I want us to do in the holidays something together or have meals together at home on the dining table and sometimes a family has disputes and I think that it's normal, because there aren't any families that have no disputes .So I think disputes are sometimes okay.
S., girl, Germany

I must be married with a rich man, and then I have a huge house with a pool. Then I have a big Audi. I have two children, a little sweet girl and a hot boy.
S., girl, Denmark

Well, I wanna have ... a loving, caring, sympathetic husband, who doesn't care when the whole house is in a mess or even cleans the house (While I'm hanging out with my girls .. Nooo, just kidding ;D) ... Does he exist? and perhaps children, it doesn't matter which gender.
S., girl, Germany

I will have two children, one girl and one boy, but I don´t get married, and I would like to live in L.A. I would like have a big house with a big garden!
C., girl, Spain

I would like marry with a man who loves me and form a happy family with two biological children and if we can, we will adopt a child.
N., girl, Spain

I don´t want to have children, they stress me, I will see my future in my apartment, with a lot of friends, maybe with a boyfriend but without a husband and children.
