Travel vs. Babies

Jump to last reply

So this may or may not be appropriate for this forum, but I just want everyone's opinion on a hot topic in my household right now ��. My husband and I have been married 5 years, together since high school, almost 15 years!! We spent or 20s going to college and traveling and have been to 7 different countries. We love traveling and try to take 3-4 dissent trips per year, at least one being over seas. We are now in our early 30s and need to make the big decision on if we want to have kids or not ��. We don't really want to give up traveling and aren't sure if we want kids bad enough to give it up!! What is everyone's experience on traveling with kids, leaving them at home while you travel, or just not having kids at all and continuing to do whatever you want!? On one hand I'm really worried we'd regret giving up our freedom, but on the other hand I think we'd really love being parents. I worried that we won't have the time or money to continue traveling with kids, not to mention the hassle of lugging all the stuff with us to another country! I would love to hear your thoughts, experiences, insight, etc. Thank you!
