Question

So this weekend the wife and I are going to engage in our annual State-of-the-Marriage weekend.  We try to work through any big issues that have come up during the year and to set some goals for the year to come.  We usually look at budget stuff, job stuff, housing stuff, married-people stuff (you know what I mean).  This year, however, we're going to try to decide whether or not to have children.

When we got married we said we didn't want to have any kids until after we had been married for five years.  Well that was in July.  So now we are trying to make the call.  

I'm posting this here not to ask for advice (opinions are ok though), but mostly to ask for prayer and wisdom.  We don't want to make this decision lightly.  It can't really be based on a list of pros and cons.  We're trying to seek God's will for our life and for our marriage.

First, I would spell anual, aks, and adivice correctly, though knowing you, aks may have been spelled that way on purpose.

On a more serious note, we're kinda going through the same thing.

Grrr, stupid red-underliney-fail. Perhaps I rely too much on that crutch. Thanks for the catch.

Do you two have any brilliant ideas?

You should produce many children, and then name them after me.

I'll carry your baby.

All I can say is that if you wait for the "right time" you'll never have them. Once you have them, you'll know it was the right time all along.

Even if they are pure evil with their horns holding up their halos.

Good luck with that one. I have no opinions on this one.

Sorry I didn't see this any sooner.

I think you both would make awesome parents! Hope you had a great weekend and were able to at least get a better handle on God's will for you at this point.
