About This Quiz

Studies show that raising a child from birth to 18 years old costs over $230,000. And that is PER CHILD. The average wedding cost for 2017 was just shy of $26,000. Hm. Quite a difference. Some would rather throw an elaborate wedding for their friends and family than save that money for a family. Whatever you choose, how you plan your wedding will tell a lot about how many kids you will have.

Having kids is expensive, we know that. Are you someone who likes spending money? Great. You might be fine with a lot of kids. But what do you like spending that money on?

Farmhouse in the suburbs? Penthouse in the city? All of those things can determine how many kids you will have.
