Writer's Block: Kids or child-free?

Whether you've chosen to have children or live child-free, how and when did you (or will you) reach this decision? If you're in a relationship, did you (or will you) decide separately or together?

 I know one of these days I'd like to have a little ankle biter~ It's one of those joys in life that almost everyone should experience <3 As far as deciding when your ready, well, it should be decided by both in the relationship and only if you know your ready financially and mentally. It's just one of those valuable experiences in life that just make it an adventure <3
