Why do families/people decide to have multiple children?

I was thinking about this today when my cousin's wife announced she is pregnant with number 4.  I think about everything that's happening around us and it makes me realize that I truly do not want to bring anymore children into the world. Our resources are not limitless and our economy isn't where it should be at. I don't think that enough people are concerned about humanity's future. I'm not trying to be insulting or judgemental; I'm just trying to understand why people continue to have children so carelessly.


Everyone asking why I had a child if I'm against it: because I was young and I did not have the same views as I do now. 


Secondly: "If we stop having kids all together the human race won't survive." Right obviously that's the case. My question was about multiple children. Thanks.

    Do they love, care for and support their children? If so, tell them congratulations and shut up. It's not your place to judge!

    I'm not judging. If that's what they want that's great... I'm concerned about the future. Not so much the now.

    I try to put my part; I recycle, I donate to charity, help out where I can. I'm not boasting or sitting on a high horse. I'm just trying to understand why no one sees past right now and realizes that resources are not forever.

    Saying they're being careless is judging.

    The life expectancy of a child born today is 80yrs. No economy stays the same for 80 years, good or bad.
