Deciding to Have a Baby
Often, even as the newlyweds are still cutting the wedding cake, relatives and friends ask when they're going to start trying to have kids. You and your spouse might not be prepared to answer that question. But after you get married you can start talking about having a baby with each other. Do both of you want children? How will the decision affect your marriage, your careers, your life? Deciding whether to have a baby -- and talking about it -- can be difficult. But it can also bring you and your spouse closer together regardless of what you ultimately decide is right for the two of you as a couple.
