Apparently having two daughters is the key to happiness. According to a survey, a poll of 2100 families in the UK; with 12 possible combinations of children found that having two girls will most likely provide a happy home. Two daughters is said to be helpful, compatible, peaceful, and therefore contributes to a harmonious family life.
Anyone who knows me know that I adore boys. If I could choose the gender of my next child, I would want to have another son! My husband however, will strongly oppose.
Generally, boys just seem less complicated.
I’m mostly terrified of those dreadful teenage years when girls are psychotic, emotional train wrecks who are full of attitude, drama, and tears (or so I remember). I wouldn’t know how to deal with any of it, nor would I want to.
With boys, I would be safe from those awkward conversations relating to the male’s physical and hormonal development. At least I hope to depend on my husband for that.
Plus, I can’t image a happier life than with my two boys.
This preference may have something to do with growing up as a tomboy, and with three brothers…
Here’s the “best” to “worst” combinations of children based on the study:
2.One boy and one girl
7.Two girls and one boy
8.Two boys and one girl
9.Three boys and one girl
10.Three girls and one boy
11.Two boys and two girls
