What urges people to have children?

Is it because they want someone of their own to love, or different reasons?

Report as

Most basic reason ... to maintain or increase the population of the human species.

we have to many human to have more

codeman ... and yet, the people who believe that never decrease the population by getting rid of themselves. For some strange reason; it's always someone else that they want to get rid of, or put limits on.

If you really believe that ... you should follow your belief, and reduce the population by removing your presence.

Hypocritical of you to say the Earth can't support the population, but refuse to remove yourself.

Perpetuation of self, family or species. Take your pick. They are pretty much the same.

and God said to them be fruitful and become many and fill the earth and subdue it. Genesis 1:28 children are a blessing from Jehovah God.

There are a myriad of reasons people have children. Some may just want someone of their own to love.

Here are just a few:
~
~They want to procreate and carry on their bloodlines
~They truly love children and want to raise good decent people for the world
~
Here are some not so good reasons:
~
~It is what they are supposed to do when they get married
~They had unprotected s e x and decide to keep the baby
~They think it will be fun (aka teens with no means to support said baby)

I am sure there are many more.........also, not everyone wants children.

Thank you very much.(: That helps. And, I don't want to have my own child. I just want to adopt one.
Report as
Good for you. There are a lot of unwanted children that need loving homes.
Report as
Exactly. That's why I want to adopt. I don't know where I'm going to get a child from though. Have to figure that out later.
Report as
Ynp, Absolutely right. Star-worthy! You mentioned ideas nobody mentioned.
Report as
Why not try from the country you live in. They are just as needy as any from other countries.

Yes other countries can be poorer than say the US of A or Canada, but that does not mean their children are any needier. All children need love.

Children in the US of A that do not get adopted end up in the foster care system. Not a happy childhood at all. Some foster parents can be great, no doubt about it, but some are horrid and the child suffers.
Report as
I don't live in the US of A. Haha. But, I could try adopting a child from there. Or where I live.
Report as
I see you live in the UK. Try adopting there. Adoption agencies and orphanages are everywhere in every country.
Report as
Yea? I think that's what I'm going to do when I become older. But who knows, it might change.
Report as
Good for you.
Report as
Thank you very much.

Chemicals released in the body drive most people to mate. The child is just the product of the chemicals being successful.

Mentally some people have children to advance their family name or to not feel alone

No problem. What is your specific situation that causes the question? More detail makes better answers.
Report as
