G'day all! I was looking through this thread and was encouraged by what some users were posting about their future families. So with that in mind: What does your ideal future family look like?

As someone from a large family, I know that I'd like to see as many kids as God (and future wife) agree to, helping around our farm, coming in at evening for supper, and then having our own music worship session after the meal. :D

I don't know that I particularly have an ideal... I know that I want a good number of children, and that I fully intend to homeschool them. I would like to live in the country rather than the city or suburbs, but the rest is essentially undetermined.

I'm going to be Captain von Trapp, I swear. :rofl:

I'd like at least a few children, I suppose. Beautiful house modeled after the Bacon Memorial Library. But again, rather on the more disciplined side....:rofl:

I also plan to homeschool.

More recently, I've not wanted children/husband, so maybe a cat or a lizard.

Hmm, I always said I'd like 5 children, but as I've got older (26 now) I'm trying to be more realistic. ;) Plus I suppose it all depends on how many my (God willing) future husband wants. I don't think I could cope with more than five though. I would love to homeschool, but again, it takes two to decide something like that. I'd love to do little Bible studies with the kids growing up, teaching my children to love the Lord. Where we settle down isn't really something I've dwelt on much, but I'd like to live not too far from civilization, but not too country either: nicely in between. Other than that, it's not something I've dreamt about in an in-depth way, I don't have tons of plans or anything, just some wild ideas. ;) ;)

Wow! Looks like everyone has some good goals! I'm definitely encouraged by the homeschooling bit that has been mentioned in each of your replies! I've been homeschooled all my life and can't imagine doing anything else with my children.

Lady Abigail, do you happen to have a whistle? :D

You make a very good point Lady Elanor. While we can dream, a lot of these are decisions that must be made by husband and wife together. :)

That is what they had at my grandfathers house. I much prefer it in tone and style. It is a handy thing to have when you don't want to be shouting. Excellent on a farm, I'm sure.

Ideally? This is probably going to end up a ramble about my future hopes, rather than focused on the family aspect... but I'll try my best. I'm a bit odd in what my ideal future looks like, hence why this can't really be focused solely on a family.

In the future, I want to have a father figure who unofficially adopts me; who is a real father and actually knows how to care for his family. There are a few people I would like to have as an 'adoptive father', but I don't really have to choose. I just want someone to look up to as a dad.

As for me actually getting married and having kids... ehh. I'm probably the odd one out on this forum. Most people say they want large families; a husband, lots of kids. Whereas I'm the one who says instead that I currently don't feel like I really have a huge desire for either a husband or kids.

Sure, I'd love the companionship. But I'm a wild soul with a restless heart, and the idea of committing to something that should ideally be permanent doesn't appeal to me.

I've spent most of my life tied down because of family, and I want a good long time to do what I want to do, and explore, and learn things; rather than be cooped up in the same house in the same town. I want to graduate from a university with a bachelor's degree in English and a bachelor's degree in Filmmaking. I want to get a good job, and travel the world.

On top of that, I'm unstable. Not just because I'm restless, but emotionally. It's impossible to predict my emotions from one day to the next. And any decent man deserves a stable relationship; not someone as crazy as me.

So yeah. Ideally, I'd like a companion. Maybe a few adopted kids. (I don't ever want to have biological kids, for a variety of reasons; another thing that isn't really fair to most guys I would even consider marrying.)

There's also the fact that I don't want to abandon any of my male friends just because I'm married. If I get married, my husband is going to have to accept that 3/4ths of my friends are male, and I'm not going to stop hanging out with them. Again, this is something that most guys frown upon.

So yeah. The idea of having a companion and maybe a kid or two is appealing. But for right now, I'm perfectly happy to just lone it, hang out with my friends, go on road trips, and run wild.

Would anyone really like to adopt children when they are married/in the future? I would love to adopt one day, personally. Fostering is something I'd like to do as well, I think.

My ideal family would have a husband and however many children God blesses us with. If possible, I would love to either foster some children and/or adopt. I also want to homeschool my children.

I somewhat romanticize the notion of having an open house. Allowing anyone in and showing God's love to all who do. I also really like the idea of hosting a baby box. A place for mothers to leave children rather than throwing them away or killing them. Of course, that requires living in a more populated area, which does not appeal to me, but if God desires me for that role, I'll have to make adjustments. I haven't actually put a lot of thought into fostering, but I would be willing to adopt.

Yeah, they are, probably from a humane society.

This thread was super fun to read. Also, I realized it's no longer future for me. My wife and I are expecting a daughter on Valentine's Day. We already have a name picked out too.

Hopefully I'll finish law school, and we'll have lots more kids. We want to unschool our kids like I was, and be really involved in their education and in helping them do what they're passionate about from a young age. Also looking forward to catechising the kids and giving them a solid education as mini-Presbyterians.

I'd also like to teach film to homeschool students, and start a production company with my family later in life.
