Ready for kids...?
How does one know they're ready to have children? I've been with my gf for 9 years, since she was 16 and I 19, she's ready to start a proper family but kids aren't something I find myself around (her friends have them, and she works with them) so I can understand how she knows. But I'm just worried that I am ready, but have no way of knowing or the utter opposite and I don't want to get her pregnant and then panic! So how did you guys know you were ready? :)
