Do people have kids because they genuinely want kids or because it's what is expected of them once they reach a certain age?

Sometimes I wonder if people genuinely want kids. Are they happier with kids, given the sacrifices and cost of having children?

    Most envision a family life, unaware until it happens of the tremendous responsibility, sacrifice, and disruption it creates. Those opting not to are brave, because a stigma still remains toward couples producing children, capable or not.
