There has been large push to reduce population.
For men overall, there has been a large decline in testosterone levels and sperm count.
However. you will probably know that the consequence of reduced fertility is the demographic imbalance where the over 65s have increased their proportion in society. This means that there will be less young working people to support an ageing population.
This results in older people having to work longer, pressures on the health system etc. I know in the UK, retirement age is 67 currently but I know there are reports which suggest this should go up to 70.
According to this article the fertility of Sikhs in India is 3.1.
The replacement rate is 2.1.
I have no idea what the fertility rate in the west is for Sikhs are.
But surely it is above 2. Most Sikhs have at least 2 children.
My personal opinion is that Sikh families that tend to be larger are ones that are trying for a child of a particular sex.
I have seen plenty of families where there are 3/4 girls and 1 boy. The boy is usually the youngest.
I have also personally known 1 family that has 5 boys and that is because they keep trying for a girl and they keep having boys.
One of the common expressions you will usually hear after a second child is born is "family is complete".
Honestly the mods/admins are a bit too forgiving and lenient. That Sukhvirk76 is apparently on quality control, yet still posts like anyone else here. I wouldn't mind if this website is more runned like Gurmatbibek.com where each and every post has to be approved by the mods. As things stand right now we could post anything and everything and there seems to be no external power other than Vaheguru Ji running these forums. If Vaheguru Ji himself is running these forums that's nice, but that's not how normal people think. (Unless you make someone that's a regular member here a mod then I'm afraid it's going to continually go down-hill.)
