Well, as the parent of the "first" children... I'm of the opinion if you can't afford the first kids you made, you shouldn't be making more.

I certainly wouldn't be able to afford more children in a second marriage and I won't be having any more. It's the sensible thing to do.

On the other hand my ex, who can't afford the ones he's got (he's consistently a month in arrears), has been hinting to our kids "how would you like a little brother or sister?" ... I'm sorry if it sounds harsh... but don't be making more babies if you can't afford the ones you already have.
