I don’t like being asked when I’m having children. It doesn’t matter when I’m having children because it’s no one else’s business except for myself and my husband. Whether or not I have children doesn’t affect you in any way, so don’t ask me.
I saw a great meme a while back that said “don’t ask if a woman is having children because of…” and listed various things including health and mental problems, infertility issues, because they don’t want to, because it’s none of your business and I completely agree with the sentiment. People aren’t having children because of a variety of reasons and those reasons don’t include anyone except for the couple. Once someone was flabbergasted at me because I didn’t want children and continued to say that children help continue civilization. Well, guess what, there’s 6 billion people on this planet and at least half, if not the majority of those 6 billion people have at least two children. They don’t need me to procreate to help with civilization. If I do decide that I want to have children, it’s because I want to have them and not because I feel obligated to having them.
I don’t know what else to say about that. Just don’t ask a woman when she’s going to have children. That’s all.
Once I think of other annoying questions, I just might make a series out of this. We’ll see.

I think some people just ask as small talk or trying to get to know someone.
This is true but no less irritating wen asked over and over again 😀 When I was single, a co worker was convinced that every guy I talked to or hung out with was a love interest or date and wouldn’t be talked out of it
Ah yes that would be totally annoying. Ask once and then move on.
Indeed. Once an old friend of my mom’s came in to my work and started taking pictures of me while working because she knew single guys that might be interested in dating me. I felt so awkward 😅😅
That is SO weird lol.
