Are you having kids?

Are you having kids?

Is that an appropriate inquiry for an engaged woman?  I’ve been asked this question numerous times since I announced my engagement, and it strikes me as way too personal… like I’m being asked where my bodily moles are located.

If I answer no, then the obvious question comes up:  “Why not?”  And it’s usually accompanied by a disapproving or disbelieving look.  Like, how dare I not procreate?  Some people have even insinuated that it’s pointless to get married if I’m not going to pop out a mini-me.

Next time I’m asked that question, I think I’ll shoot back with one of my own.  I think it will have something to do with bowel movements.
