Yes, I am assuming a young woman from a close-knit family would want children. Why wouldn't she? It's only an assumption though.

So only women from broken or distant families don't want kids

Not saying pippa doesn't want or won't have kids but that is a very narrow minded assumption. Many modern women don't picture kids, even when married. It's not a sign of how they were raised. It's a sign of their personal goals. It's archaic to think all women automatically want kids.

I never said anything about women wanting or not wanting children. We (at least I) were talking about Pippa Middleton Matthews and I was replying to the statement "assuming Pippa has children." I am assuming she does want children because many women who experienced happy childhoods want to have children of their own. Not ALL of them, certainly. I have no clue, and neither do you, what Pippa and James Matthews plan to do regarding children and I have no intention of getting into some stupid discussion about it.

She may want 10 of them...she may want 0 ...none of us have any idea. That was my point.

I'm betting that Pippa and James will want children, and sooner rather than later.

(Take a close look at what she is wearing).

It's just a shirt and jeans/pants....similar to what she has worn before, I wouldn't read that much into it.

She's never been one to wear extremely tight clothing?

Frankly, I get tired of that narrative that all married women should have children and want them. She's not a broodmare and I blame the media in this. F*cking bumpwatch.

Well I suppose we just think she will want a family. It's not like she has some fantastic career. And we would think James would want a family too. No need for all to get their knickers in a knot.

All that was asked is that people not make assumptions about women they don't know with regard to something as personal as whether or not they want (or can have) kids. It's not about Pippa so much- it's more that it can be incredibly intrusive and difficult when people ask questions as personal as those around kids and married women who don't have kids have to fend those off constantly.

It was a reasonable request and a good reminder about how difficult it can be.

I assume as a young woman from....

This was a pretty generic statement referring to women from close families. You made the assumption that all women want children if from a loving family.

Make sweeping generalized assumptions you are going yo get a debate.

No one can assume anything. A woman could come to, a close knit family if ten kids and work as a nanny and hever want kids. Assumptions based on ones family background are faulty.

Hrh and empress totally agree. Coming from a woman in her thirties with no kids, it is both intrusive and rude getting asked when you are going to have kids or why not. Some don't want. Some want and can't have. Some are trying and not yet. It is the business of the couple.

I absolutely agree we shouldn't ask someone when they are having a baby etc. that wasn't what was implied
To refer that was calling her a broodmare is ridiculous. From a simple comment someone wrote to this is a big jump.

Ummm.... no. The reporters and editors are not failing at doing their jobs. They specialize in drivel. Its their lifeblood and most likely those up and coming young 'uns with the urge to have ink stains on their fingers and make lots and lots of money would line up to intern at the Fail to learn the ropes on how not to stick to facts, look for the silliest drivel to write about and on how to twist words to mean something totally different.

Obviously you totally misread my comment? Or only read the word broodmare and then jumped to typing?

The role of the media in this entire fascination with women and them being pregnant, giving birth and having children in general is simply bizarre, intrusive and sexist. I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I've read a headline on the Daily Fail where an actress with loose clothing was perhaps hiding something, or a big meal immediately means a baby bump, or she is showing off her bump because god forbid after a few months you can't exactly hide it anymore? Ask the likes of Jennifer Aniston how lovely it is to constantly be reminded of the fact that she hasn't had children and if she's still going to, even though she is nearing 50.

It's not that crazy to assume Pippa might want children. She is still young, newly married etc. However, is it that hard to listen to the posters here (that I assume are mostly women) who tell you that this ''will she, won't she?'' or the ''is she, or isn't she?'' debate/fascination needs to stop. It's nobody's business.

It won't come as a surprise to hear a baby is on the cards at some stage. Why not? Lots of couples do, some couples don't It's a personal choice.

A friend of mine discovered she was pregnant after being married about 10 years ..... definitely not a happy surprise to say the least for either of them! Five years later as little Charlie embarked on his career as a formal student, baby number two (a girl) arrived, definitely planned!

Pippa is only in her mid thirties and has had the experience of having George and Charlotte around, so am expecting it will be yes rather than no to extending the family unit.

Then again, only my opinion. For all we know both Pippa and James could have strong opinions regarding children, either way.

It is no one's business whether Pippa has children, just as her wedding was no one's business.
She is a private citizen.

But at the same time, she is in the public eye, and you can't blame people for being interested! Maybe they shouldn't be, but as someone mentioned, such speculation is rampant whether it's a Royal, a celebrity, or a politician.

I don't see that changing.
