How do I answer the question, "When are you having kids?"?

Asked by dindinbaby (329 points ) January 18th, 2010

Now that this spinster has finally tied the knot (I’m 30) to my very fabulous, former long-term boyfriend; I’m very often asked the question, “When are you guys/y’all (he’s from TX) going to have kids?” There seems to be no answer that will prevent the inevitable, “You guys bettter hurry. You’re not getting any younger!” (He’s 35.) So I have grown tired of being polite about this very, in my opinion, impolite question. So give me your best, snottiest, snarkiest responses!

Laugh hysterically and say “You’re funny! Why on earth would I want to do that??”

How about: ‘Probably around the same time you stop asking me stupid questions.’

Surely you have better things to do than plan my future.

These are great. Can’t wait to see the look on my elderly, and very noisy, aunt’s face!

My wife and I get this question a lot. My favorite response is “when you can make a deposit on the college fund, because I sure as hell can’t.”

Just say you’ve been trying since you were 13.

Zen_Again's avatar

More like 3 minutes after @eponymoushipster gets there.

We prefer oral sex, it is so much less messy!

Vunessuh's avatar

@Dr_Lawrence Only if you swallow. If not, it’s just as messy.

Oh poo. All of the good answers are taken. Seriously, I’d ask something like “Explain to me how it’s any of your business.” Or, maybe “We’ve had three already, we just keep getting rid of them.”

Naked_Homer's avatar

Hopefully about 9 months after we have unprotected sex. Why, when did you have them?

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Zen_Again that was a fluke. i apologized to your mom after that.

@eponymoushipster Mom says you need viagra, or not bother coming around anymore. She says she could use the 3 minutes to knit.

Violet's avatar

I like to say “before I am 30”, so you could try saying, “before I am 40”

“Are you planning on funding their education, and need to know because of financial planning?”

“After our student loans are paid off.”

Or, fake-burst into tears, and run from the room, saying, “We can’t!!!!”

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Zen_Again funny, she never complains when i’m there. granted, she a polite lady. never talks with her mouth full.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Why? Seeing you raise yours can drive anyone sterile.

Zen_Again's avatar

Complaining takes time – she’s old – and your’e outta there so fast she barely remembers you were even there. She asked me to tell you to bring friends next time – bigger friends.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Zen_Again your mom wants a gangbang?

Zen_Again's avatar

@eponymoushipster With you and your buddies it would be more like snow white…

Jeruba's avatar

Hey, you two, get a thread.

cookieman's avatar

Man, have we gone off the rails with this one!?

augustlan's avatar

[mod says] Let’s try to get back to the topic, folks. Thanks!

Just leave them confused, and while they’re stunned, walk away.
