Damian- fair enough. If I had a family, I'd be singing a very different tune, especially in this economy. But currently I am unmarried and without kids, so I gave the answer honest for me. Looking at my financial situation, I'll probably never get married or have kids because of my school loan debt and spotty job situation since 2008. I'm not even sure if I even want to marry and have kids. Let's just say a lot of things have disillusioned me since 2008.
That's why I love being a special ed TA. It pays shit, but it's the most fulfilling job I've ever had. I may not have kids of my own, but I'm making a difference in the kids I help teach. If I could do this for the rest of my life, I'd be alright.
