Studies show that raising a child from birth to 18 years old costs over $230,000. And that is PER CHILD. The average wedding cost for 2017 was just shy of $26,000. Hm. Quite a difference. Some would rather throw an elaborate wedding for their friends and family than save that money for a family. Whatever you choose, how you plan your wedding will tell a lot about how many kids you will have.
Having kids is expensive, we know that. Are you someone who likes spending money? Great. You might be fine with a lot of kids. But what do you like spending that money on? If it's on vacations, home decor, china, etc. kids might not be in the cards for you. They say that children are the future. So think to yourself, what does your future look like? Farmhouse in the suburbs? Penthouse in the city? All of those things can determine how many kids you will have.
Are you the kind of person who would rather choose a fancy wedding over the cost of raising children? Take this quiz to plan an elaborate wedding and see how many kids you'll have!
