Oh, and today's rant

Why do some people seem to have no boundaries when asking about having kids? Now, I have no trouble with a pleasant inquiry. 'Do you plan on having kids?' 'Do you want to have kids soon?' - all within the bounds of polite conversation. But repeated blunt comments throughout an evening?

I know I used to be the kind of person who asked those kinds of questions too directly. But I realized I had no idea what kind of wounds I was exposing and what kind of hurt I might be causing. Sometimes it's not as simple as just wanting kids. Wanting and having are two very different things.
