You are, as they say of age already. With a stable and good paying career and so does your partner. You have been going steady and have known each other for quite some time. Emotionally, you feel you are ready to take the next step forward and start a family. And with that, one of the biggest decisions you can make in your life is whether you are ready to have a baby or not. Being a parent entails a lot of responsibilities and is far from being easy. You have to have a lot of patience and be 100% committed. You will have a lot of sleepless nights, less time for yourself and your partner, and you won’t have the freedom to do what you want any time you want to. You need to be willing and capable of making a lot of sacrifices, take care of another being other than you and your partner, and withstand all the hardships whether it is physically or emotionally. Despite of the difficulties of having a baby, the positive things outweigh it.
