My brother in law is one of a family of 23 siblings (good old catholic family) - but the dad was widowed and had two wives. (Not at the same time) so it wasn't the one lady who had all these children.

My Grandfather was one of 18 and my Grandmother one of  13. My Grandad had nephews older than him. This was long before the days of the welfare state so how they hell they coped is beyond me.

They didn't buy every child an ipad?

i watch this series sometimes, it looks kind of fun to be in a big family ,  i have 2 girls, its quiet a lot lol , i am impressed that parents can keep up with appointments , school meetings, hobbies, homework etc, its hard enough with 2, 

i do wonder over finance , as much i may have loved to have a larger family i chose not to in an attempt to live within my means , each to their own choices i guess and peoples standards of living 

its not all material things ! but i completely disagree with extending families through choice when not in a position to support them , selfish really
