Generally, having a child is one of the main reason for getting married and starting up a family. Now over here in Nigeria and most African countries, we believe in having several children. An average number of children most families give birth to are five kids, some tend to exceed this number while only few stay below the number of five children. I believe that it's culture related because Africans appreciate having numerous numbers of children. This is not a common practice in some other parts of the world, which is why I decided to bring it up here for discussion. How many number of kids do families have in your country and what number of kids do you consider appropriate for a family to stick to? I would say 3 children seems perfect to me.
