Readers say a couple should determine how many children they have

50% of PNP voters think a couple should determine the number of children they make.

Worried woman

The issue of children and the number a couple should have is something that has raised dust in many families, especially when the two of them do not agree or there are external influences like parents and even the society.

A Pulse reader, Princess Itiaba is facing this dilemma as her husband's family want her to keep having children after she already has three.

In deciding the number of children a family should have, many things should be taken into consideration, things like economic and financial power of the couple, their ability to take care of the children as well as the health implications on the woman.

On that score, a poser was put up on Pulse Nigeria Poll:

How Nigeria voted:

15% - The husband decides how many children a couple has

35% - The wife is the one who carries the babies, so she should determine

50% - It should be a collective decision from both of them

How would you vote here?
